    Default what age did your bully become lazy?

    Maybe lazy isn't the right word, but "chill". Butters is only 2 1/2 months old, and I know I should be loving every minute of the puppy stage. Its just he has soooo much energy and loves to play, but sometimes I wish he would like to cuddle or maybe just fall asleep on my lap. The most he ever cuddles is when I first let him out of his crate, he will cuddle for maybe 2 minutes, and then he's on to chasing his toys. Just curious at what age do bulldogs live up to the lazy reputation.

    Maybe never...not all bullys grow up to be couch potatoes. My Usko is 2,5 years and is full of energy, but not as much as my 6 months old, who does sometimes drive me nuts. I know bullys who are very active at 8 years...so not all of them live up to their reputation...

    IMO, the lazy thing is often because they can't breath well enough to be active. EBs can be totally nuts and very active but like any other breed that is influenced by each one's particular personality. EBs reach full adulthood at about 3 years old and like most adults are generally more chill than kids are. My first EB Zelda (RIP) was pretty much crazy her whole life. My current boy, Zamboni, has been more mellow since day one. He has the most calm soul or any bullie I've ever had and I've had a more few of differing sizes and types.

    There were many reasons I wanted a bully....one being after reading about them I thought hmmmmm...with working from home and not having alot of time to do long walks, etc. an ebd would be the perfect type......well, I was taken by surprise right off the get go.....Forde has alot of energy, he has of late calmed down some and lays around more than he use to......but for the first few years he was wide open.....family members have even commented i thought english bulldogs were suppose to be laid back and not have such high energy..... his vet has commented that most bulldogs come in and lie down and chill...Forde comes in and is busy over here, over there , doing this and that..... makes me laugh

    Haha, this is funny since I just wrote a post in the Health forum about my 7.5 year old slowing down! I have one 7.5 and one that just turned 3 and my 3 year old, Truman, is a wild man for about 15 minutes...then he needs a 6 hour siesta!

    I would say the Diva chilled after Samson died...she was 3.5...now she is a chunky monkey and I am trying to get her more active so she can be at a healthier weight. She is a lazy thing now! I would think it is because of the extra weight though. So, if you keep your bully trim then I would think they have more energy but they are really all different!

    Mine will be two in sept and he definitely isn't lazy. I mean yes he sleeps like a bulldog lol but he has so much energy all the time ... When he comes in from his potty break he always runs around my kitchen table full speed a few times. U better stand clearer unwilling end up like a bowling pin..

    @BUTTERS, you sure have a long ways to go! Both of mine, at just over two years old, have a lot of energy to take hikes, brisk walks, and daily games of chase. BUT, they both have plenty of down time too and I notice they take more naps throughout the day.

    Mine is 18 months old and I'm still waiting.

    However, we find Chef D to be more chill when we are not at home. I currently have a hurt shoulder and can not play with him like normal. If he is getting excited I take him out to the bar/restaurant, to the park, downtown, basically where there are people. It relaxes him.

    BTW - this is my first post. Our bully's name is Chef D.
