I might be off base , but Bulldogs are stubborn and to different degrees and even Male versus female maybe also , is Bogey a dominate male ?, could be and to be honest versus a medical issue he is projecting his dominance in this situation of marking that couch full blatter release or not he is very aware that is a NO NO right . I find also Bullies can and will pout after not being aloud or corrected for behaviour issues , Tilly used to sit and stair strait forward into a corner back to Me , Rosie also is starting to show her stubborn parts as she is now a teenager . i will also as he is not fixed that could be part of what your seeing question is how old is He ? I hope it is not a health issue , Weather naw I live at the east side of Algonquin park, you have been balmy compared might be unpleasant but there more durable then that and with a coat on no problem. love to know what you find out tho learning is good lol .
