    Default Bulldogs are so dang stubborn!

    Sometimes I wish they weren't - these are our homemade pet steps for Princess Brynn since my bed is so high up it is hard for her little legs to get up that high... then she whines about it. So I got her to go up them once, with a treat of course, but now she looks at me like "pft dream on" *shakes head* try to make life easy for her and she won't just go up them... instead she'd rather make a face and noises at me as if I should move the stairs out of her way.

    Aww, she just wants mama to pick her up. They're not only stubborn, but can be quite lazy too. Lol. Maybe take the stairs away and just put a doggie bed pillow on the floor beside your bed, and see if she settles and sleeps there.

    She used to sleep in her crate all night - I feel bad leaving her there and let her do as she pleases... she figured out bed is more comfy and has slept with me since. but I feel bad because she barley makes it up there... but the stairs are scary and bad so I suppose they have to go! lol she growled at them a minute a go...

    Yes she wants to be picked up

    Maybe the steps are a bit narrow for her comfort too.

    She's just protecting you from the mean monster stairs

    I would move them to the bottom of the bed and leave them a day or two to see if she will get used to them enough to stop growling and put her pretty little feet on them.

    You don't have to feel guilty about her sleeping in her crate, they actually like being in the crate if they are used to it. It's a safe place for them, and if used as her sleeping place, and her safe place when you aren't home , and not as a place for punishment, then they don't mind being in the crate. My two were crate trained from the time I brought them home, and they sleep in there at night. During the day I leave the door open, and they will go in there on their own when they want to sleep or just chill, and I have to put them in there when I go out, because otherwise they would eat everything in sight.

    I love the way they lull you into a false sense of security. Brutus will be "good" for a while and I will start to think, Maybe I can leave him out while I run to the store, and then BAM! something chewed. Last night he tried to trick us into thinking he was behaving. He was laying down chewing what I thought was a toy only to find out it was my daughters flip flop!! Bad bully

    So true. Harlea learned how to jump on the couch this weekend and we have been working with her that when she gets up there she is to go to s specific spot and sit or lie down. Yeah that worked for about 30 seconds before she started running laps and trying to eat everything. We have a set of steps for her to use as well but they are just a game to her as she just races up and down them as fast as she can go.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Our Nitschke did the same thing... got steps, would not use them, so then my b/f built a ramp... nope, still would not use them. We went out and bought a bench to place at the end of the bed -- ta-da! He used it.

    Now Banks, she used ALL of them, nothing stopped her from getting on that bed. Unless, we told her no, then she would go lay on the bench, kind of like saying, if I can't, then he won't either.

    She is a bully alright lol Brutus has been having a hard time getting in our new bed as its high up also! Me being 7 mnths pregnant cannot pick him up to go on the bed! Hubby puts him in bed for me and Brutus has learned his lesson not to get up during the night and jump off b/c he will end up sleeping on the floor lol He would wake up and then cry for us to pick him up again (hubby sleeps right through it)
    Everyone wants to kiss a bullie

    We use a rubbermade step stool LOL and Sheldon would whine to be on the bed but wouldn't let any of us help him up so we put the step stool at the end of the bed and when he whined to be on the bed I just told him to use the step stool it took him a couple nights but he figured out that if wanted on the bed he would have to use them and he does with little to no complaint.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.
