    Default First time english bulldog owner

    Hello. Very glad to have found this site. I'm a first time bully owner and need all the help and advice i can get. Lol. I am 32 years old from kentucky. My husband and I have a 6 year old daughter, Erin, and a 3 month old son, Alex. We just welcomed a 10 week old EB puppy into our home. We have had her for almost a week now and boy oh boy am I glad to find some place I can come for advice. Her name is Macy and like a true EB she loves to chew. Including things she shouldnt such as my daughter She is brindle and white, energetic and mischevious during the day and a cuddler at night. I look forward to meeting you all.

    You didn't give your own name so we should call you webster? lol Glad you joined and would love to see some pix of Macy,,, cute name.... and you other kids. I'll leave the biting issue to those that have /had puppies. Princess Gracie came to rule us at 3.5 years so I'm not much help in this. This site is a wealth of info on bullies so please ask away as questions com up.

    As for those pix.................

    Again,

    Welcome!!!!! Yes we pics, skin and fur kids. We are a nosey bunch so please chat away, questions stories etc. I have a 1 yr old who is a biting hyper little girl so hopefully you get good advice and are able to curb her now. lol. I know bullies tend to use their teeth a lot. Get lots of chew toys. Nylabones are a good one. No rawhides, pig ears etc as they can choke on them. No greenies either, have heard they are bad I believe too. Deer antlers are a huge hit around here and last quite some time so maybe santa could bring her something like that? Can get them at carolinapetpantry.com if you are curious. I know when they bite I have seen a lot of people say to say no and distract by replacing the hand etc with a chew toy. Repetition is key especially with bullies cuz they are VERY stubborn. lol

    Well I tried to post a pic but for some reason beyond me it won't let me. Maybe cause I am using my ipad. When I get home from work I will try to upload. My name is Kelly. I will definately have to try the deer antlers. Thanks! She has plenty of chew toys but prefers the sleeve of Erin's shirt or her pant leg. She is stubborn for sure! But i know its important to teach her who is boss now before behaviors are set in stone. Her few little teeth she has are razor sharp as she has nipped me several times as well. Wish potty training was going a little smoother but I KNOW it will come in time. If this darn cold rain would go away we'd have better luck.

    I havent had a little eb pup myself but can imagine how hard the training must be as stubborn as they are. My pug was easy but he aims to please almost 100% of the time. lol Bulldogs dont care if they please, it is more if they want to.

    No kidding on that. I've never had a breed like an EB that wants nothing more than toot to his own horn and do as he pleases.

    Kelly and Macy. So glad you found us, the peeps here are wonderful. Watch out for @JAKEISGREAT though, she's quite the CHATTY one.

    Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of bulldogs and the crazy world of EBN!!!

    antlers and mylabones are great.... whenever she is chewing something she shouldn't -- take it away and give her what she should chew on.
