Thread: Buster Update! and some encouraging words for new bulldog owners..

    Default Buster Update! and some encouraging words for new bulldog owners..

    I'm sure most of you are somewhat familiar with my bulldog Buster. He's not around 10 and a half weeks now. I know nights 1 and 2 were a nightmare. Buster was crying so loud, i thought our entire apt complex could hear. He took his sweet time to start pooping regularly. He seemed to be really uncomfortable and scared. and he pooped out worms (which freaked out my gf haha) But like everyone said, it passed. I am really grateful for all the encouraging words I got on here! So moral of the story, no matter how crazy and impossible it seems, it gets so much better

    We're still working on potty training, he's doing pretty well and we're about to start his clicker training He has blown me away with his crate training. After the first night, I was for sure 100% against crate training. I didn't think I wanted to even attempt it at all. He's amazing at it now! and it's only been a handful of days. He cried for quite a bit the first night and made it very clear he didnt like it. But now, he loves it! he goes in during the day by himself to take naps and just for his own space.

    There's still plenty of things ahead, but he's done so well that i know he'll do great. Time to keep moving with potty training and then on to getting him to stop chewing!

    That's great news! Violet is getting out of her biting stage thank God! She's 4months now. She is now loosing and getting teeth so the chewing is coming back. I feel so had for her poor mouth...

    @AMart79 I am so glad your baby boy is settling in and showing you why we all love our Bullies so bad. Every phase passes eventually and as long as you try to remember this when its happening you will not stress so much.
    is the pic after his first bath? I have a similiar one he looks like he's saying "what did you do that for?"

    @Angievelvet try putting a wet facecloth in the freezer for Violet to chew on, it will help with those sore little gums

    Welcome and what a cutie!!! I bet you get in lots of snuggles with this one. I came on this site when I got my bulldog over a year ago and the amount of help and support I received was immeasurable. I never have to look elsewhere for anything. If you don't get an answer here, only a vet would know anything further! More pics please
    I didn't do it
