    Default Bully Timeouts

    So who has to put there bully in time out, how long do you do it, and what warrants the time out?

    I am inspired this morning due to the fact Bear is punished for bulldogging and I am interested on what others do as far as time frame and when is your cracking point?

    Ruggles gets put in time out for excessive barking. He is our first Bulldog that has been an annoying barker. We leave him in time out until he has been quiet for about 10 minutes. He is 4 now and has quieted down a bunch!

    We use time-outs with our bullies! Layla is a "bully" and plays very rough. Winston is spoiled and thinks the world revolves around him and takes things from the others. Between the two of them , they "fight" atleast once a day. Just like kids...its starts with playing and gets to rough. All I have to say it "TIME-OUT!!" and they will go lay on their bed or go to their crate. I tell them to stay and "ignore" them for a few minutes. 3-5 mins feels like forever to them.

    We use time out for different reasons excessive barking, jumping up on people, or begging for food. She always gets a warning but then after that she goes to timeout. We shut the door, turn on the light (of course, she doesnt like the dark), tell her to sit and NO "whatever bad behaviour she did", she stays less then 5 minutes and then has to sit and tell her no again to whatever bad behaviour she did and then out she comes. It mostly works because she wants to stay with us! Consistency is key!!

    i am working on this as well. Bullet plays sooooo rough sometimes with my chocolate lab! you should see how he bites and pulls at his ears and loose skin around his neck to a point where it starts to hurt my lab or runs full speed and chest butts him in the side! my lab is tolerant but i am not! i tell him no, be nice, bad boy and if he continues i scoot (yes, guiding his rump) him into the laundry room where i have a slatted louvered door that i shut to keep him in there. i also wait 3-5 min and let him out and as i open the door i stop him and get down to his level and tell him "be nice". i keep consistant and he is somewhat changing. it's hard to punish him just like it is to do so with my children. ugh. lol

    When O is really bad, she gets put on her back..then in her kennel. Usually until she is quiet...and her breathing is back to normal

    My girls play WAY too rough and when they do, they go to their crates. No 3-5 minutes, because they're sleeping in a minute.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Sometimes Winston get's the Devil in him and starts to run around the house, jumping on furniture, and nipping/biting at my wife and I. When he starts to get this way I put him in Time Out to calm down. He usually just goes to sleep.

    Belly gets time out quite a bit. She bites a lot! She doesn't stop..she'll run from me to hubby and then over to our Boston and does her darnedest to inflict damage...she will go in her puppy corral until she settles down.

    Ahh, I'm a big pushover. I never put my bullies in time out. There is just no need in Linus' case and Truman already doesn't love being crated so I try not to ever use it as a form of punishment.

    Same with me, I can't recall a time when Stiggy needed to be put on time out. We do try to be persistent in stopping him whenever he does something wrong by saying 'no' or in my case making the 'psst' sound.

    tried it with Chester once.. but as you may remember, when I pointed my finger at him to scold him, he "high fived" me
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."
