    Default JUST SO STUBBORN

    -2017-09-21-12-47-57-jpg

    Siu Mai is now 3 months old today and she has a bad habit of biting and tearing apart the urinary pads and even the green mat 'toilet' pad bought for her to use. Everytime I placed a new piece for her and immediately it gets torn apart. The green mat toilet was only used twice on the day of arrival and then she bites it whenever she sees it. . . . . Huge waste of money. She seems to understand simple commands such as Sit, Down and even Hand BUT she does not understand the command NO. This command seems difficult with EBs. Any advice pls?

    She's ONLY 3 months. Still a baby. And yes they sill rip everything and anything apart. Get raw MARROW bones for her size. Like the 3" long ones. Give it to her frozen. All raw should be frozen. This will keep her busy for hours. She's teething so yes she'll chew even your hands.

    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.

    Stubborn is not a Bulldog abnormality, it's a trait. If any Bulldog puppy were not stubborn I would have them to the Vet for a complete physical and mental work-up

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    For some reason these pads are irresistible for bulldogs. A plastic toilet helps, you put pad inside and she won't be able to eat it. Very good thing, I used it. Dogs paws never touch urine, perfect !

    Bella only listens when she wants to for sure. At first I could get her to come when I asked her is she wanted to eat, that lasted a while but then just didn't anymore. Then it went come look at this frog in the skimmer, sometimes still works. Then it was do you want your ball, that works if I can show her the ball. Recently is do you want to go for a ride. Then she'll come running. Otherwise it's what she wants when she wants.

    All bulldogs seem to have the same middle name: Stubborn! When my pups were "in training" I used washable nursing home pads,once they started chewing the pads. The only time mine come running is when it's time,and I say "are you hungry?!"
    "
    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"

    A stubborn bulldog sounds perfectly normal!

    Regarding the puppy pads, I would say get rid of them! Going to the toilet is so very much a social thing for dogs (at least for male dogs but I suppose for females too). For dogs, peeing is a communicative act and they choose their spots strategically, and i would think it's important that already as a pup. She's young but these indoor potty solutions to me seem like working against nature!

    They stay in Hong Kong, what usually means apartment building. Pee pad indoors is a temporary necessity when you stay in apartment and not in the house where dogs are outside in a moment. In apartment building you have to walk to elevator, take 20 floors down, walk through lobby...sometimes things happen! Unless you carry your bulldog all the way, which is getting more complicated with every passing day

    OK, I see! Castor was actually raised in an apartment too (but we were only on the third floor) and we ran up and down the stairs or took the elevator if it happened to be working and no one else was using it! I still think pee pads are questionable as they may send the wrong signals to pups.
