    Default FREEDOM

    Frankie has been giving us a lot of trouble going into his kennel lately when we go out, so I decided to start small and let him stay out while we were gone for short errands. Brutus always goes happily in his kennel. Anyway, Frankie has proven himself a good boy and sleeps the entire time we are gone. He has graduated to being out all day while we are at work. My daughter came home yesterday to find him sleeping in his favorite chair, completely upside down with all four legs sticking straight up in the air!!! I curse the fact that she didnt snap a picture. I guess he is enjoying the extra leg room! lol

    Yup hard letting them free for first time.... Nyala goes in her kennel on her own at night time. She feels comfortable in her kennel. I leave the door open and she can decide where she wants to sleep. But it's mostly night as day time when I come in n out she's on her bed in living room.

    How do they do out together?? They are out together all night and just sleep on the chair and couch, but I am nervous leaving the house and having them together. God forbod they fight and I'm not there to break it up. I think I will continue to put Brutus in his kennel since he likes it.

    Thats good to hear. Harlea has free roam of the house for the most part. She is only in her crate for meals and at night. We still have her play pen that we will put her in if no one is home and we will be gone longer than an hour or two.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Mine do fine together-they only fight when I am home!!! If it will worry you, just leave Brutus in his crate-he doesn't seem to mind. I think they pretty much sleep while I am gone.....

    For those that let them free has there been an average age? We got Penny as a rescue we think around 3 or 4. We put her in a crate when we were gone and she hated it, like chew on the metal bars til she bled hated it and we decided she needed to be free and we never have a problem with her. Bristol is just a pup (11 months)and a chewer and I would be afraid she would chew on something and hurt herself.

    We never crated ours. Ok we did but only for 3 days, when he was 2 months old. He was never a chewer and never a whiner. Never have a problem with him being alone in the house except that i feel bad that he's there alone when we're gone.

    What a good boy

    That's how I did it FTSE little time to now always except at night when he goes to bed he needs his playpen for security reasons I think he sits by it when he wants to go to bed.
