    I do not have pet insurance - I do know that you need to look into it, and MAKE SURE they cover Bully Related things - Bullies tend to be pricey at the Vet - or the Vet just see $$$ when they see a Bully come into their office - - - **FIND A VET NOW THAT SPECIALIZES IN BULLDOGS**

    A high quality GRAIN FREE seems to be the what alot of people use for feed - I have used BLUE BUFFALO - Grain Free Salmon (Horrible Gas issues - as in Paint melting Gas issues) We presently use Taste of the Wild Grain Free Salmon - but there has been issues of late w/ the manufacturer (Diamond Brand) so we are thinking of switching again.

    Collar for Tags/ID/Rabies etc
    Harness for walking and out and about.

    Food... remember, you get what you pay for and the wrong food will me MORE vet bills... allergies, skin issues, weight problems, etc. The biggest thing to remember is bulldogs are like no other breed and require alot of attention and daily maintenance. Fromm, Earthborn, and Nature Variety Instinct as some of the favorites of those here, but you can check the recommended food listing on the nutrition forum.

    Collar/harness... there are many threads discussing this, but we use both depending on the situation. Collar is for stress=free situations , short walks where there will be no pulling and such. Harness is long walks, dog events or lots of people. Bullies have small trachea and are bruised/damaged easily. use you best judgement based on the situation.

    Potty training.... get a schedule set based on the puppy age... they can hold their bladder for 1 hour more than they are old in months... so 3 moth old pup can hold for 4 hours. Take him/her out 20 mins after meals and as soon as they wake up.

    Hope all that helps.... ask all the questions you need to --- it is why we are all here to help and have fun.
    Great advice here. I wanted to say to EBN.
