    Awww what a handsome little fella! He may have not had any previous training and might not be sure the correct way to play! He may have some trust issues also so I would take it one day at a time and if you have a trainer that would be a big help! Brutus cannot play with other dogs b/c he is used to bullying Chanel around and she takes it but most other dogs wont! lol

    what a great stinkeye picture give him more time to adjust, but definitely get soe training classes. Basic obedience classes will be a great start... he may not know how to play and think that everything is HIS and start protecting. Since you do not really know much history, be smart and safe and get the proper training before trying to do any type of pinning/submitting

    Training is always the best answer for behavior issues, however, try to find a trainer that has worked with bulldogs. They are a special breed and as evidenced by all the threads on this site with various bully " issues" they are pretty much made out of the same mold. Hopefully you will find someone who understands that! That said, bullies can be very verbal. Bogey gets very " loud" when playing with his toys, and if we start tugging, the growl gets louder. I only let him play tug with another dog, but if he gets too verbal, the play is over. I have asked guests not to tug with him- he gets too riled up. But he has NEVER shown one iota of aggression anywhere else, so I know it's just rough play. Can you approach his food while he is eating without a growl or guarding? That's a good test for his personality. And I think since you got him as an adult, it is good to have the eval. Just love his stink eye picture!! He is screaming " yeah right, I'll let her THINK she's the boss!" Good luck!!

    Things are getting better. He snaps here and there but has stopped going for the roommates feet. He doesn't have any food aggression so far. He even lets the cat eat with him.
    He's very protective of me and is has the basics sit, down, shake down well. It's just the refusing to go out for a walk unless he really has to potty and the roommate waking into my space when he's around.
    The bully trainer should be here this week for his eval so we will see what he says.
