    Seems he is reacting to your wife not being at home.... changes to their environment will sometimes cause this type of regressive behavior -- go back to training basics with him, schedule is everything -- and as someone else suggested, a mid-day potty break. Our first Bulldog would #2 in the house every time we moved furniture around.... post up right in front of us and drop. Also, when you let her out -- go with her and do not come in till she poo and then reward the heck out of her when she is done... treat or lovin's

I know this is an old post but I'm a bit at a loss on what to do about marking. I hope time will help
    Marking is a hard one.... you have to try and catch him in the act and then give a firm NO.... we used a spray bottle with water in it for our Frenchie... squirt to the side of the body or side of face with a firm NO, then took him outside immediately..... it took 2 yrs to fully break him of it

    does anyone else's bulldog do any of this? i've been fine with it up until lately because it's like this every single day..my husband thinks i'm being "mean" but i'm a stay at home mom and we have another dog also. we have 1 car so it's not like i can leave and get away for a break when i want... i'm just so irritated! we're having him fixed in june before we take our trip home to Texas & i hope something changes with him as a result. we bought him from a breeder in California with papers for $2600 & right now i feel like he's a total waste. if it wouldn't upset my son & husband, i'd find him a new home. i love him but i just can't take this! on top of that, my husband is trying to go special forces (and if all goes as planned he will be deployed soon) so while he's gone i'll have to do this all alone. we want to add baby #2 to our family but how can i do that knowing i'm this stressed about small stuff..but the small stuff that happens everyday ends up being a big annoyance everyday. help.
    I myself reading your post was amazed I think you have the problem and the Bullie would be better of in another home they need to be loved not snarled upon.

You're right..they pee and poop and drool and eat and sleep..oh ya..and sleep some more. I bet your other dog does most of this too. I agree with someone before me..I bet his markings are in response to how you feel towards him. All dogs are very in tune to their humans..they feel your stress and anger. They feel your love and most of all they feel when you don't love them. I give you credit for being forthright about your feelings. I give you no credit for holding this or any dog in such low regard. I sense some real turmoil in your life and maybe it is easy to blame a drooling,slobbering,peeing,pooping,lazy ..but beautiful dog. After all, he can be sloughed off and the other problems will still be there. Be honest with yourself and if a new home is best for him..then find him a great loving home. I wish you peace and I wish Bodacious a new beginning..with you or a new family.

    I have to agree with jakeisgreat... bulldogs aren't for everyone.. sounds like finding him someone that will love him like he is will be best for you both.. just be sure it is someone deserving please..

    Wow I thought I had problems. I can't get much work done in the house with my 7 month old but I'm putting it down to being a puppy. He follows me everywhere but I am slowly getting used to it. He eats everything has destroyed every toy he got for Christmas but I still love him.
    Does your dog get out for a walk? I know this is the one activity my bulldog lives for every day he really enjoys outside.
    You are being very honest and that is to be admired, I truly hope you can find a way to live with your dog he looks so cute.

    My Elmo sleeps all the time, he doesn't want to play, he will be 3 in July, but I Love Him, he is my Big Boy, no matter what he does I Love Him, I would not give him up for anything. I did a lot of research on Bulldogs before I got him, I knew he would be the way he is, No Problem, I Just Love My Bully Boy So Much.
