    Cool Hello from Saskatchwan, Canada - 1st time English Bulldog Owner

    Hi,

    This is my first bulldog (Kain) so i'm educating myself like crazy. I've wanted one 'forever' and finally pulled the pin. Wow he is everything we have hoped for (minus the stubborness <lol>). I've started researching clicker training as soon as I got him (10-11 weeks old) and I already have him Sitting almost reliably with cue, spinning, Hi Five after a sit, and touch where he jumps up to touch my hand. Potty training is going good but I have to coax him with treats to get him to follow me out of the house on the leash, once he's out no problem with either 1 or 2. Lastly we put him in a pen similar to the way he was at the breeders and he sleeps through the night with no accidents in the pen. (Hard to belive I think).

    My biggest factor so far now is the chewing abilitys (ate a bag of bully bones in one week - $20 <poof>) but kept him from chewing the shoes or couch. Other item i'm fighting is walking him, he wants to stop constantly and throw on the brakes! I'm more stuborn then he so show him a treat (he doesn't get it until we are walking good) and keep him truckin.

    I'm hoping to be a frequent visitor, photographer as a side line so expect lots of photos

    I'll figure out how I upload them etc but for now here is a link to his albulm on my facebook page if it works.

    TTYL,
    Vince

    Glad your dream came true!! I'm no help on the training... but as far as chewing..get lots of nylabones..and we love deer and/or elk antlers. Stay away from all rawhide and bully sticks. I'm not familiar with Bully Bones..but antler...(xtra large) will cost about $15-20.. And last months! And nylabones are all different prices and last even longer! Can't wait to see pictures..we do have a tutorial under forums to help with the picture thing!

    Congrats on Kain -- he is very handsome! Welocme to EBN and the wonderful world of bulldogs. as others have said - nylabones, antlers and Kong products work best with bullies.
