    Default Anyone ever felt like getting a guard dog for our bulldogs?

    There's this company that goes door-to-door in the major cities of my province that employs very aggressive sales tactics. Including inviting themselves inside the home even though they weren't welcome or was already told that the homeowners aren't interested in their services/products.

    This one sales person tried to do just that and when he tried to be friendly with the boys my overprotective mom mode kicked in. After changing the tone of my voice, from calm to strictly assertive, the guy finally left. All I could think of after was that the boys needed a tough looking brother/sister because they're just too trusting of strangers. There I was trying to get rid of the guy and all they were doing was wiggling their bums! :smh:

    Winnie thinks every new person who comes to our house has come just to see her. She barks when she hears something outside--anything outside. Jack is friendly, but he's a talker, a loud talker, so sometimes people are afraid of him. He's better than nothing I guess!

    Sigh… I SO miss my Roxie girl, everybody thought she was a pit so they were afraid. She was the sweetest dog on the planet… Lol I don't open the door for anyone that I don't know… I'm home alone most of the time and I do NOT trust people!!!

    I know what you mean. Both of our bullies run to grab a toy and start the butt wiggles whenever someone comes over.

    Yes, I agree...Cami is very protective inside our home if she hears a noise
    but totally loses any aggression once anyone is inside. Outside, she is so
    loving to anyone & any animal she sees, my son described her to me (he
    drove 5 hours to pick her up) as a big ole' tub of love, it is exactly her

    I once had 2 Catahoulas (brothers) that struck immediate fear in every one.
    100 lbs of solid muscle, naturally docked tails (some are born w/ tails) and
    huge chests with triangle shaped heads...most thought they were pits. And,
    Catahoulas are very protective (not mean tho)...I miss my boys, Leo & Beo,
    short for King Leonides & Beowulf...magnificent in every way.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I had two Belgian Malanois, who died within months of each other. I felt totally safe when they were here to protect us. Without them,my only protection is the fact that many people think any bulldog is a Pitbull!!!

    Sales people like that could never make it here! Im surprised in this day and age people are still like that! Our 2 bark their heads off whenever they hear someone at the door but are extra friendly when we let people in. It always amazes me how many people think that EBDs are vicious and mean when it couldn't be farther from the truth.

    This guy is the protective one. It's actually really tough to gain his trust if you are new to our scene



    This guy is a wigglebottom with all people and dogs.

    FTSE won't let anyone in our house, garden and for that matter even touch the fence or walk by our car at the service station he comes across as a mean nasty boy not the loving little Angle that he really is.

    JOKIN
    the rare occasion we get someone come too the house they rarely get out of there cars, due to the dogs barking and if they get a look of Odin on the deck they leave all good !
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
