    Well I'm really happy to hear all of you saying that a playmate for Gertie is a good idea, because (insert "drum-roll" here) tomorrow her bully sister is coming home!! It's been a while since that post was started and we've thought about this and looked for her perfect playmate and we decided on a puppy just Gertie's age. Ida is two days younger than Gertie, so they're the same size and should be perfect together! Gertie's behavior has improved since I posted this. She doesn't try to chew on everything anymore, we used "Bitter Yuck" and it worked very well. She also got tired, I guess, of constantly getting in trouble for biting on us because that has greatly improved. Her house-training is coming along, slowly. Guess we may as well get it over with all at once with both Gertie and Ida. I don't know if that will make it harder or easier. Guess we'll see...

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

I have 3 year old twin grandsons and they never go in the same direction. With my luck Gertie would be eating one cord and her sister would be eating one across the room. But it does sort of make sense. Could everyone give me their opinion? Would another puppy be a good thing? Or just double-trouble?
    Ruckus was an energetic puppy and continues to be an energetic dog. If I'm home he wants to play play play. He is starting to calm down a bit as he is getting a little older (he'll be 2 in February) and by that I mean he is totally trustworthy at home alone, but still has crazy puppy energy from time to time. I wish I had gotten another puppy from his litter when I got him. I want a companion for him, but I don't really have the time in my schedule right now to give a new puppy the same attention and training I gave Ruckus. If you raise two at once, you won't have to go through the puppy stages again later, so that's a plus.

I was hoping for some ideas on how to get her to stop being such a naughty puppy. I swear, she just delights in unplugging lamps and playing in the vertical blinds and doing a dozen other no-nos. She just goes from one thing to another to another. She has a ton of toys and I don't EVER leave her unattended. But she seems to love nothing more than getting her little self into trouble. She ends up in her crate for a nap because I just can't chase her any more. Am I doing something wrong, or is this just what every Bullie owner goes thru? I assume she will eventually outgrow this stage, but if , in the meantime, I can learn some tricks to keep her out of "the slammer" (as we call her crate), she'll be much happier and I won't go crazy. I live in the Phoenix area and so it's HOT, we can't spend much time outdoors. She has to run off all her energy inside. So, any ideas how I can get her to stop all her "naughty girl" behavior? Poor thing thinks her name is "NO NO Gertie". Thanks to all!

    I know this is an old thread, but this is the story of my life. I feel bad when I'm just like, "No! No! No! No!" constantly. She goes from chewing on the couch, to my fingers, to the curtains, to the cords, etc... It's ridiculous. The thing with Bella is she really doesn't like being in her crate, so I only put her in there when she eats, when I go to work or otherwise leave the house. That's part of the reason I'm so stoked about her playpen. She loves it! It makes life much, much easier.

    I was wondering that same thing! lol Kira is a little brat, too Whatever fits into her cute little mouth will end up there. She too does not care to please and is as stubborn as @#$%^&%&. I too end up putting her into her crate when I need a peace of mind and some quiet. Thankfully she does not mind to nap in there. She is also not too smart about potty training (to be frank, the dumbest dog I have potty-trained lol). She knows very well that it is good to potty outside and goes straight to business when we are out. But she also does not think twice about peeing in the house...I have to take her out like a million times a day as holding it even for a bit is not something she'd consider.

    Murphy used to be just as bad. I remember starting a thread on here when Murph was 8 months old asking for help because I had no experience whatsoever with English Bulldogs and I thought mine was the only naughty one. My husband and I are starting to realize that they are all about the same

    Murphy is a little over a year old and he is so MUCH better. He still gets into what we call his "munchie moods" but at least when he's tired he will go to his crate. And now he even likes to snuggle! Just takes a little bit of time and I have to remind myself to be patient sometimes.

    Mine is 12 weeks old and exactly the same. He bites on everything! But it's nice reading that it's normal and will get better over time. I will be more than happy when the house training is complete. Feels like forever! We also have a playpen for Archie. I wasn't sure if we should crate him or pen him, so we tried both and the pen works a lot better for him.

    We called Canelo Demon Dog till he was about 6 months. I have pjs that have a ton of holes from the knee down, Demon Dog did it. Yes he was a brat, but a cute brat and he knows it.
