Only time will tell if she will stay with us or not.

    I can definitely do the "nothing for free" thing, but as for keeping them separated, that will be almost impossible with the way our house is. The only place we can really keep her is the kitchen area (since it is tiled) and that's where our others go for water and get out to go potty. Unless by separate you mean keep her in her crate a bit more so they can run around the house more.

    maybe keep her on lead till you get her to behave with your two babies? It sounds like it may be dominance and she wants to show them she is lead.... if you can find/afford it, find a trainer to come work in the home with you for a few sessions - it can help you identify her signals and correct before she can do anything. it will also help the other pups know you are lead she is below you

    So we had a good night last night. We took 2BullyMama's advise and gave them some more space. the past couple of night we walked them all together, but we decided that last night we would walk them separate so we could do some training drills with Winnie while the other two were out walking and didn't feel like they were missing out on the treats. It worked really good. It gave Winnie something to focus her energy on and all three dogs were wiped out at the end of the night, bonus!!!

    Another good night last night. They actually all ran around the back yard sort of playing together, lol its a start. I think the biggest help right now is keeping them separated unless they want to be together and taking them on walks together. Thanks for all the help so far.

    Wonderful update, I know that as time slowly passes, it will get better & better - they will all be buddies soon enough

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    If this is dominance related... she will be great outside, then inside the house is when it will show. Great progress... stay consistent. appreciate the update
