    Default I need advice about my bulls hips and if I shouldn't let her jump up on my bed couch ?

    Hey I have my bully she's five I read a lot about bulldogs having bad hips. And like I have a English x french and a little french x Boston but with frenglish she looks like a English in every way but she sleeps in my bed she can't handle being anywhere other then right beside me so she jumps on my bed and if I go pee she jumps down and comes with me everywhere same with my couch and I am afraid her hips from all the jumping she does will go out I try no to lift her as much but I can't help a lot of the time. Will that jumping take its toll on her? Or what should I do does anyone have any advice? Should I just always try and lift her ? Shes my angle I love her more then anyone person thanks -1447859977919335280080-jpg

    @Iluvdaisy As your dog gets older,jumping on and off will definitely take it's toll on her joints. You could buy some doggie steps, and try to teach her to use them,or a ramp, though it is hard sometimes to get them to use it, after always been jumping. You could even put your mattress on the floor. Giving her joint supplements now, may help with protecting joints from getting arthritic .

    -003-jpg-004-jpg-005-jpg-002-jpg We purchased stairs for our couch and bed ( Amazon.com or CA ) there very resonable versus in the last pic elbow surgery on a Bulldog or any other Dog . The dog you see going up those stairs is now 11 and has no issues with the stairs or her joints so far , Hope this helps
    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.

    It could take its toll on her - especially as she gets older. My dogs love jumping on furniture - getting into a hammock, so we've tried to make it as "safe" as possible for them.

    We have a hammock which they all like to sleep in and we've soften their landing by putting a huge pillow under it, as such:



    Stairs are also a good idea but my guys probably would just continue to jump.

    BTW - I have a Frenchton too - he is on the far left in the pic.

    We have bought stairs and ramps for Canelo but Mr. Hardheaded still jumps. My sisters pug jumped into a chair last year and dislocated her hip. Since then I've focused on Canelo more not running and jumping so much. Im now looking for ramps that can handle him, he's 69 lbs and the one I bought for him said it could handle up to 70 lbs, but it moves under him so he's not comfortable with it. I gave that one to my sister, her pug is under 25 lbs and it suits her well.
