    Default Potty training Maximus

    I know hes only 3 months old. But I feel like hes a slow learner. Hes been pretty consistent. Some of the mistakes is my fault not reading him right. My labrador pup has been easy, hes 3 months old as well. But Maximus doesnt seem get the idea I'm potty training him. Ive caught several times by raising my voice but he didnt seem to get it. Are Bullies slow learners? I do have him in the crate almost 2 times a day. Only when I go workout and bedtime. Im very patient with him though.

    Bullies are very smart. At his age he needs to be going out every 2 to 3 hours day and night. Shortly after eating and play sessions as well.

    It takes time. Some longer than others and even then some will regress around 6 or 8 months.

    Lots of praise when he goes outside and he will learn fast. They aim to please!

    If they go indoors I do not scold them, instead I clean up the mess and pretend cry and whimper, letting them know I don't like it. Bulldogs are like humans and respond better to human emotions better than general commands.

    With this method they understand that when he goes outside, you're happy. When he goes inside, you're sad.

    Oh yes! as @bullmama and @Marine91 say-praise,praise, and don't forget the TREATS!! That really worked for mine. -and yes they usually have a set back just when you let yourself think "they GOT it!" Be prepared............

    Meatball took some time to housebreak!!! He got the poop thing right away, but peed in the house often. Nothing worked for me but time. By 6 months he was good.

    Canelo got it at about 6 months. I was so frustrated because he would be playing, stop, look at me and just start peeing. I'd tell him no, you go outside and would put him on his leash and take him outside. He would usually poop when we'd go out. I'd give him lots of praise and carried bite size treats and give him one. Since then, he's our best baby and goes outside. Now how he communicates going outside I had to really pay attention to him because he doesn't bark, make any sound, he goes to the door and stands like a statue. I ask if he wants to go outside and he stays there, I open the door he goes out and I still say "good boy" to this day. Be patient, talk to him and he'll come along.

    Our girl was really easy to train she is almost four months now, starting pooping outside almost immediately after getting her at 7 weeks and was pee trained shortly after. Our little boy is taking longer. We have had him for three weeks and he still wants to do all his business in the house, we had to close the crate doors during the day or else he uses them as a toilet. We are doing all of the same things with him as we did with her, taking him out lots, treats, lots of praise. They just get it at different times, just like potty training different kids. My vet also said to have some patience with the little boys.

    You are on the right track. One thing I noticed is that when I placed a pillow inside Ace's crate, he would pee there. Ace was a lil stubborn with pottie training. Carpets were his weakness, lol. I actually removed the center carpet of our living room to continue training him. He finally got it at 6 months!
