    Precious, yes but a handful lol

    She is almost house trained for #2, she will let me know most of the time she needs to go by standing by the door...but when she needs to pee she couldn't care less where she goes. She also pees on every bedding, towel or soft toy. Very hard to break this habit

    Yes, that is a tough one. Remove all bedding from her crate till she is trained. Best thing to keep in mind they can only hold the bladder for 1 hour more than they are months old... so at 3 month 4 hours is her limit

    I went trough much of the same issues with Lockjaw. In the end it's all about consistency, schedules and them growing up.
    With the crate- lockjaw was the same way- he didn't like to be in there locked up. So EVERYTIME he went in there- he got a treat. That works great. Even to this day, we give them the "good" treats when they go in their crates- on command by the way; bc they know they are getting a treat. I you tubed some videos about it.
    Lots of patience will, consistency, love and treats. She will do fine and so will u!

    She is now eating her new food 100% (no mixture of the old) but I see her poop is very very soft, not quiet diarrhea but very close to it. This is not getting better should I try a different high quality food?

    I'm not a food expert so someone may have some better, more experienced information but I wouldn't switch her to another food yet UNLESS she is having signs of allergies or an intolerance to the food; itchy tear stains, vomiting, irritated paws, etc. If the dates are correct, it seems she made the food switch a couple weeks ago. Her body might still be getting used to the food. I would suggest double checking and make sure you're not over/under feeding her and also you can add a little pure pumpkpin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) to her food to firm up her stools.

    I had to make a quick switch to Goob's food a month ago and he had loose stools for a while as well. Now, they are firm and we don't have any more issues.

    P.S. Nina is WAAAAY too cute!!

    Thanks for the advice. Her allergies are actually going away with this food compared to the older one...I think all gone. She used to have red spots, dry skin and constantly scratching herself now thats all going away. I will give it another 2 weeks and see what happens.

    I do add some pumpkin puree to her evening feeding which definitely helps but I don't want to always rely on the pumpkin. Hopefully it's just a getting used to thing.

    Her stools are normal in size and looks normal but is VERY soft.

    Try feeding a few days with no pumpkin... and see if you notice any improvement on the firmness of the poo. If she's improving in other areas, I would not switch yet. Give it more time.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    you can try this it works very well for Me for the crate , I wear a shirt all day go about My normal day I when getting ready for bed play with the pup with it so I cover her /him in it on the floor and say where is ..... ( your dogs name insert ) , i also poke pull legs and make a fun time of it , this is all just before bed time , I put the shirt in the crate for her/him and close the door once the pup is in , if the pup is attracted to your wife use her clothing , I find the pup settles almost right away , there might be a little barking and carrying on but they settle and I think it because of the daddy or mummy scent on the clothing , it takes the place of the litter the pup just came from , have patience is a must with any pup .
    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.
