    Default New bulldog puppy

    Hello everyone!

    On Monday, we are picking up our bulldog puppy. I have started to puppy proof my house and get some of the things that I need. Any advice for a new bulldog owner?

    Thanks!

    Cool Re: New bulldog puppy

    Hi Melissa and to EBN! I've gone through 3 puppies and here's my tips.

    1. Patience, they're like raising a baby.
    2. Change your food from Royal Canine (that's a lousy food for bullies).
    3. Bulldogs do not do well in heat and they're # cause of death is heat stroke.
    4. If you're crate training, put the crate next to your bed at night so when he/she starts to whine, reach down and touch him throgh the slates - they just need to know you're there.
    5. Be prepared to be doing laundry just about every night for the next 3-4 months depending on who fast he/she potty trains.
    6. Puppies go through their teething up to 5 months. First getting their teeth (those super razor sharp puppy teeth) then they those those and get their adult's in.
    7. When potty training, once he/she gets up, get him/her outside immeidately. The same goes with playing. Many potty mishaps happen because we don't get them out.

    Oh there's a lot more but I'm short on time so I'll let other's chime in. There's some great articles here on food and puppy training. Plus they're a new group here just for puppies. Let me tag @Lucy-licious and she can point you in that direction.

    Can't wait to see your new bully!!!!

    Here's the Welcoming your new puppy article.

    Here's where some nutrition ones are. Bullies aren't like other dogs and most don't do well on junk dog food.

    You already got some great advice! When we got Bruin as a puppy and he was going through his biting stage, we just went and got another puppy, b/c we thought that would help with his energy and nipping (they could take it out on each other)...but then we just had 2 puppies biting us. So moral of the story, don't go get another puppy right away

    How awesome for you! We just picked up our new puppy 2 weeks ago and its definitely been a learning period! This is our first dog together as a couple (my husbands first dog ever) so we have had to learn so much. But it is totally worth it! The first night was hell but it got better quickly. They say it is like having a baby but faster. Seamus is 13 weeks old and is already sleeping around 5 hours a night, which is amazing. We crate train him and he is doing great. Already learning how to go outside to the potty (even though we live on the 7th floor of an apartment building). He has only had a few accidents in the house and most were my fault. Only 1 poo accident and that was the first night so it was probably a combination of nerves and anxiety.

    Good luck with your new puppy! Can't wait to see pictures!
