    Default Stella Update

    About a month ago I had posted for help because I was at my wits end with our lovely mini tank on four legs. After using some tricks you all gave me and getting help from a behavior/trainer, she has come around by leaps and bounds. She is still a very energetic and testing young girl, but 8 times out of 10 either we can redirect her from attacking our Golden or she redirects herself(to which she gets lots of praise and treats). Trying to teach her life is not a race, she will get special things in due time, patience and praise. We still can't walk them together cuz she wants to take him out to be first, but that will come in time I think. She definitely respects me a lot more for reigning her in. She follows me and asks permission for toys or to get up on furniture to snuggle. She is a somewhat different dog and I am so glad that I continued to seek help instead of resigning to her not being the dog for us. She is the dog for us, I just needed to learn to speak Bulldog. Hahahaha. Again, many thanks to all those who offered advice and help. This is truly a great place for help.

    Fantastic update.... thanks for sticking with her! They can be a challenge but well worth the time and effort.... our girl was 9 yrs of training, day in and out, but I would not trade it for the world.

    Love to see some pictures of Ms. Stella

    The one thing Cesar Milan says that has really stuck with me is that all dogs are a blank canvases. Most dogs with behavior problems are reacting to our energy. I think I really believe this. I'm glad you stuck with your baby and she is now a companion you can really enjoy.

    I sure loved reading your update about Stella, @Halibee! not only was it encouraging for me (I still have my challenges w/Finn), but for anyone who is feeling like giving up or discouraged, there is HOPE and your post shows what determination, persistence, and most of all LOVE and PATIENCE can do for our bullies and for us!

    I absolutely commend you so much, you did not give up, you are amazing you are giving it all to Stella, you have done everything and it is paying off, I am so happy for you and Stella. Thanks for the update !
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    So glad you stuck with her. A bulldog is like no other. They really are a unique breed that takes a special human to understand them.
