    He will get it... Good rule if thumb... They can hold their bladder one hour more than they are months old, at 11 weeks, he can inly hold for about 3 hours

    Please, please, please don't let him use the door when you're not home. A very dear friend of mine lost his bulldog on a day that never got over 77 degrees. His dog went out for a nap and passed away from the heat. It is a scary idea that they won't even go inside if they are stroking.
    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    Thanks for the reassurance, Phil, Christine and Kori. I would have thought it's be ok for him to be out most of the day at highs 77 degrees??

    Never let your bully out unsupervised in the heat. They are BULLheaded, and as good as that warm sunshine feels, they just don't get it when it's time to get out of the sun!! Bogey will PROSTRATE himself on the hot driveway- I have to physically move him off the hot tar and onto the cool grass. Just remember, an overheated bully is a dead bully! Block the doggie door and turn up the AC!!

    Unfortunately the old line"If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen" doesn't apply to bullies. Chum would roast in the sun if I let him!

    Oregon. 75 degrees. You would think it would be okay....but literally a short amount of time and both his dogs died. Heat stroke..... Chad Watson, the guy who brought us the Kool Collar. I do believe one of the dogs was a bulldog...but I can't remember.
    @sheshistory lost her baby when he went outside and didn't return. Here is her story about Bentley. http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...istory+bentley

    Thanks for linking to my story @Libra926 ... don't make the same mistake I did! Always be vigilant with your bully outside, even if it's not "THAT" hot or he's been outside without incident before!

    I do appreciate all the information. Is there a certain temperature point where I shouldn't let him out in??

    As @Libra926 quoted above, a 75* Oregon day & short amt of time...both
    both bullies died. So...to be safe, at that temp or above, only potty and right
    back inside. Even at 68*, if very humid, only potty breaks then back inside.
    Bullies are highly sensitive to both heat & humidity and once overheated, its
    difficult to save them...DON'T TAKE THE CHANCE.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    In my opinion, if you are not home to supervise your bullie, he should be inside. I just feel like you never know what can happen with other issues even if the weather is cool. What if another animal were to get into your yard and you were not there to protect your baby. Or bad weather rolled in and they got scared and didn't get inside. Or there are lots of pups being stolen from backyards and other areas and resold. I just feel like your precious baby is safest inside if you are not there to watch him/her, no matter what the temp. 😊Better to be safe than sorry. ❤️

    One more thing...and the potty training will definitely come! 😃They have such little bladders so as the get older, it will get better. Keep up the good training and patience. Your babe will get it too! 👍
