    Default Introducing myself and Charlotte..

    Hey Guys,
    My name is Taylor and I live in Pittsburgh. I'm new on this forum. I was a foster parent at the Humane Society and I was fostering an English Bulldog who was found on the street. I couldn't believe no one claimed her, but I obviously fell in love and officially adopted her quickly. Since then I've been trying to learn as much as possible about bulldog care, maintenance, and nutrition.

    I've got her on Wellness food at the moment, but shes got a bit of gas so I'm going to switch her over to Earthborn (which seems a popular choice on here).

    We've been working on basic obedience training, but any tips are welcome! We've got sit, down, shake, and stay pretty well!

    Here is a photo of Charlotte on Adoption Day (6/26) after she finished her doggie cake...

    Thanks!
    The way I taught it was that I'd just pickup her paw and shake it, and say "good shake Charlotte!" and treat. After a few days I would just tap her foot, so she'd lift it, and I'd take it and reinforce the same way. Lastly, I just said the cue "shake" and she offered the paw on her own!
