    Default Update on Eloise, and questions about puppy dominince

    Little miss Ella Bella is a handful lol
    She is finally getting the hang of being in the crate at night means sleep lol But we have come to find out that she has a very dominant attitude. I was wondering if this was normal? Do all Bully babies go through this at this young of an age? She has even started, as my son puts it, playing the humping game As in going after my legs when I brought her out, and then once she tried on my boyfriends moms leg when our toy poodle wasn't letting her have the toy, and she got frustrated. My sister is training to be an animal behaviorlist, so she has been working with us, but I'm wondering if any one has gone through this, if it's normal or no. She is 11 weeks old today.

    They will go through this and just tell her NO and make her get down. She will soon learn it is not accepted. She is a growing pup and just like kids, will try to test you and see what she can get away with. It's up to you to teach her right from wrong, with persistence and patience. You need to let her know you are in charge and the alpha, if not she will assume the role.

    Ok, so it is normal lol She is my first bully breed ever lol
    I have been telling her no, blocking her, trying not to coddle her lol Not let her do things I won't want her doing at 50+ pounds lol It's hard cause she has those eyes lol

    Roll her on her side with her legs facing away from you. Put one hand on her hip and one hand on her shoulder. She should relax and lay there. This shows her you are dominant. Start with short 30 second intervals. After a while she will. Stay there for as long as you leave your hands on her hip and shoulder. Really helps with a puppy and older dogs that are testing dominance.

    Great advice David. PychoPixie you are so right about not wanting this behavior at 50lbs, it is great you are addressing it now.
