    Default Energetic bulldog

    Bubba is 9 months old. He is neutered and he is crazy energetic. I thought that after the surgery he was going to calm down but no ahhaha he is still a little too much. He has beds around the house so he can sleep anywhere he wants but he does not sleep outside his crate. If we are around he wont sleep. I have to leave the room for him to calm down. If we are around he wants to play all the time. Is this normal? Is he going to calm down eventually? Love him to pieces but drives me crazy sometimes jahahhaha!

    Sounds like normal puppy behavior! Are you taking him on normal walks? If so, how far and long?

    Another thing that is also helpful is training. All play does not have to be play. He might be getting bored and trying to figure out what to do with himself. Start training him how to stay, sit, lay down etc. these commands will help him learn indoor behavior.

    If you don't have a lot of experience training dogs obedience school is very helpful. Not only do the dogs learn to socialize but you will learn basic commands as well.

    Good luck!!

    Long walks, playing fetch and KONGS usually does the trick with my two ;-)

    I agree with the advise above, start doing some command training and some structured walks to let Bubba release some of that puppy energy.

    I have four. The youngest is 9 months. She is the most hyper dog I have EVER had-and I've had many! She does take an "occasional" nap, and she plays with 3 others. When she wakes up, she has to wake EVERYONE up! Her (full) sister is a nice calm-"normal" playful. They get plenty of exercise -but the "baby's" energy never runs out! She is like the energizer bunny. I AM lucky that she sleeps at night!! If he(your boy) has no one to play with-maybe some of those "interactive" toys would be good. Mine have toys everywhere-but always want the SAME one-even if their are four alike!!

    Somebody said they calm down once they get about a year old. Molly is 2 and im still waiting.

    Whats worse.. is the harder she runs around the house and bounces off the walls.. the louder she snores when she FINALLY goes to sleep. We get all the hyperactivity of a Jack Russel Terrier + the side affects of a BullDog.

    @camilabubba to be completely honest the reason why we got our second dog was because our first dog was so needy. Once he had a buddy he stopped bothering us and they played with each other. Then we got the third dog for the second dog because she was becoming too dependent on our first dog. Lol life of a dog hoarder


    But with that said dogs have a way of tiring each other out. Doggie daycare sounds like a great idea!

    2nd bully's are always the answer... The downside is you'll start posting on home repair forums asking how to fix all damage and holes in the walls
