    Default Male Bulldog Question - potty training

    Are they harder to potty train? Any recommendations? With Lola, as a puppy I had a liter box until fully trained. With boys hiking I don't see how a liter box would work.

    U will def need to crate train for potty with boys. Also a belly band will help too.

    I've only had males and all three of mine squat, they do not raise their legs. I haven't had a terrible time with any of them with housetraining, though Truman is definitely harder than the other two. Consistency and positive reinforcement is key. It will come!

    Winston was pretty easy, but I have heard that the boys take a little longer to train. The belly bands are helpful.

    Samson is a male and he was super easy to potty train and when they are babies they squat so you won't have to worry about the leg lifting until that 6-12 month mark if the male ever does. Samson lifts his leg now but didn't start until he was after 6 months and like Jill said, some never do.

    Chief was also pretty easy the only problem I have is that if someone leaves their towel on the floor he will pee on it..

    Tidus was much easier than Yuna, he still does not hike his leg yet.

    You should be able to litter box train them, I did it with Yuna and Tidus and it worked great! If he does lift his leg, it will probably be much later than the potty training days.

    Thanks everyone.....we will start with the liter box and go from there. Lola was so easy I sure hope "to be named" is easy too! I am also going to check into the belly bands or whatever they are called.

    Yep my boys were easy for the most part and they both still squat when peeing, unless they are marking the yard. (Thats the only time they hike their legs) I just gave them "cookies" (carrots usually) every time they went out and pottied outside. Worked great and they still expect the cookies every time. So funny.

    Vegas at 17 months still pees like a girl squatting I have NEVER seen him even attempt to raise his leg. I got Vegas at 4 months and he was going pretty good then, I took him out every 3 hours and rewarded him with a treat every time he went pee/poo, it took a bit for him to go to the door, but I can honestly say the only time he has ever peed in the house since is #1 when I put him in my bed like 4 times to sleep with me, he peed every time, in my bed, so therefore he will never sleep with me and #2 when he was on steroids for his ear infection. Other than that he has been an <o, and has never pottied in the house.

    Daddy is proving to be AWFUL at potty training. He just doesn't seem to be getting it very quickly. Both of us have fluctuating work hours so the maximum he is in his crate is 6 hours and yet we ALWAYS come home to pee! I have even seen him walk into his cage and pee on his bed!

    At least he is attempting to go to the door now when he is not in his crate

    I clicker trained both Orion and Vegas. They are both sqatters even tho Vegas in male and O is female. We started with every few hours going out and huge affection and treats when a potty was done correctly. Remember....reward the good and ignore the bad. Don't punish if they pee or poo inside. If you punish..they are still getting rewarded...with attention. And they may start to hide the peeing and pooing inside. Vegas has had more accidents inside than O has. We sleep upstairs and sometimes Vegas will get off the bed and go downstairs to go outside. He will sit by the door and paw at the slider. Except I'm upstairs and have no idea..I'm in sleep land. Vegas will poop then go upstairs and paw at me until I wake up. Then he will lead me downstairs..I'm thinking to outside, but it's to show me his naughty. I've never punished him. He usually will have an accident once or twice a year.
