    Default Play fighting

    Do your bulldogs play fight with each other and sometimes bite their loose skin from the their neck to the point that there's a little blood? They are just playing, not aggressive, neither of the two are on top of the others when I see it I immediately stop it even though they are just playing I don't like it. Just wanted if this is normal?

    Mine did that a lot when they were pups. Now they sometimes pull each other by the halters. They always want the same toy-and sometimes the fight escalates, and then I have to make them quit!

    Same here with Jewel and Bentley. Although, we have not had any "knicking" of the skin.

    Yes. When we first got Frankie, Brutus would bite on Franks face. He had little scabs on his cheeks for the longest time. I guess the novelty of it has worn off and we were constantly telling him no so he has stopped. Now when they play Wrestmania they go for the legs and drag each other around the house by each others legs. Fun times had by all!!

    I only have the one bulldog, but a lot of his puppy friends like to hang on his jowels. He tolerates it for a bit, then shakes them off.

    Yes they like doing that, but we always make them stop, so the other one won't get cut from the bite.
