    Default Training Adult Bulldog to walk with leash.

    I have recently purchased a AKC 2 year old female English Bulldog. She has never been on a leash before and I have tried to get her to walk with one but as soon as I put it on her, she sits down and won't move at all. Any tips on what I can do?
    Thanks for the help.

    I'm going to tag some training experts for you, but I will give you some tips that have worked for me… I have taken my bullies to basic puppy training, and it seems w/the bulldogs they are treat motivated. I use a good harness, and a short leash… get her used to walking w/you just around the house on the leash. And if you can get her to do the "watch me" command… then try VERY short trips around the yard. Make sure to reward her each time that she keeps up w/you even if it's just a few steps… It may take time and practice, but hopefully she will come around. Good luck!!!

    Hello and to EBN!

    As Tracy stated... treats, teats and more treats. Also, just becasue she is older, training is still possible. Also, keep in mind she is still getting used to you and you'll need to build her trust.

    Excellent advice from ddnene. These guys can be very stubborn at times, they have a mind of their own and seem to do things when they want to. Lol. Just be persistent and keep getting her used to the leash.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
