    Default Hi !

    HI everyone - i have the pleasure of owning a beautiful little madam called Cookie Crumble and she turns 1 next week. She is the first dog I have ever had the honour of living with and I enjoy every moment with her! I have joined this group to hopefully pick up tips and advice in helping me provide her with the best possible life. Cookie is a happy and comical dog,shes very friendly and just looooves to chew! Her only downside is getting her to walk, she will go for trips in the car and walk in the moorlands but when it comes to walking on the pavements where we live its a big nooo! She just goes into reverse mode and shrugs out of her harness and goes into the house! Any tips would be gratefully recieved.

    Welcome to the site and wuld love to see pics of your bully, as for the walking thing, try coaxing her with a treat. Our Blondie did not like going for walks at the house either and a treat would not help. Sometimes they just don't like to go for a walk. You can work with her and someone will come along and give some good advise in how to get them to walk. I did not push the issue with Blondie.

    .... and don't forget to post plenty of pics of your bully baby!!!!!

    As for walking ....... well some bullys just don't like to walk and in the end you just have to face up to the fact and move on .... LOL!!!!

    Maggie for one was not too keen on going for walks ..... but if you took her for a ride in the car she was in heaven. The biggest problem with taking Maggie for a drive was in getting her out of the car. If you were on your own, whichever side of the car you went to she would run to the other side. So round you go to the other side and she would wait right up to the second that you got there and run to the other side with this bully wiggle of hers. It was her favorite game!!!! Which is why we let her do it so much before we finally climbed her in and dragged her little bully butt out of the car!!

    Aww! Cookie crumbles, what a sweet name Lucy was very much like this at cookies age...she loved her walks in the woods and at the local reservoirs etc but get her out for our local walk and she just sat down and wouldn't budge. Luckily our access road is very quiet of cars so we started taking her,at the beginning, off lead...she would just trot along in front of us no problem..once started she enjoyed the daily walk and now at 2 she is sat at the back door just after 6.30 every evening waiting to go.

    Try treats, praise, and lots of encouragement, take a favourite toy perhaps, and if there is someone that can go along and help make it fun then get them involved.

    Bo wants to go for a walk anytime, anyplace. He's ready to roll - always. Bea, however, must be "bribed" sometimes. I use a bottle of bubbles because she LOVES to chase them. When we get to the park, she gets to chase a few bubbles. Then they're having so much fun, they don't want to go home. ha ha ha

    Wow .. you just reminded me how much fun they are. On my daughters 16th birthday a friend bought her about four bottles of bubbles and the dogs loved chasing them. Once they'd all gone we kinda forgot all about them ... you just reminded me how much crazy fun the dogs had with it!!!

    Welcome! I love her name! Does she walk on a leash other places? I was thinking maybe it's the leash she doesn't like?

    certainly great to meet you! I also love her name. I'm wondering, like Desertskybulldogs if she's just not liking her lead. but..being a Bully ..odds are, she just doesnt want to walk!

    WElcome to EBN!! I love her name!! Makes me hungry. I have a question , which is off topic. What is the difference between the UK flag for you and @Lucy-licious and @kazzy220? I guess I need a geography lesson.


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    The Union Jack (the British Flag) the one flown by Karen and @Cookie Crumbles Mum, is the flag that represents the whole of Britain...and is made up of the flags of the separate countries in Britain being, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. I fly the England Flag...otherwise know as St George's Cross
    But with the Olympics here at the moment maybe I should be changing it to the Union Jack too!!
