    Default Head butting ??

    Abby likes to head butt doors and other things that are in her way. Is this a normal bulldog trait ? Or is she just nuts ??

    That's how Fezzik opens doors. If you are in a room he will try it a couple of times to make sure it is closed and will bark to let you know you accidentally forgot him.

    Bentley uses his nose to move things out of his way especially when he is playing ball inside the house so I would say it is normal on a case by case basis for bullies. So I would say yes it is normal for Abigal. Maybe she was a goat in another life.

    I can only speak for my own and Schultz is a champion head butter! Open doors, pushes his weim sister, tunnels through snow drifts, etc...

    Just another fun character quirk that is a trait of the breed.
