    Is the "yipping" reaction from an adult/child when he bites appropriate? Do we just do it when it hurts (I'm thinking that would be confusing to him?)

    Welcome! Well my fur baby was 4 when by skin baby was born, and here we are 16 mos later and they are the best of buds! Chunk LOVES kids and like the others have mentioned, is the best around them! Gentle and sweet. I love it! I agree about the "shark teeth" stage - we had a foster pup over Christmas and when she got too riled up I had to crate her to calm her occasionally because of the nipping. I would first try to distract her with a chew toy but if that didn't work, a quick time out usually did. Those little teeth hurt! Otherwise you will have such a great time watching them together. It's so sweet.

    Welcome!! Well firstly stop worrying. Having a 2 year old myself I can say at this age she is more likely to hurt my pups than they r her. They r grown tho. So of course you do have the puppy teeth phase to get thru but as dreaded as it seems it does pass quickly. My bullies get in their playful mode and knock down the 2 yr old at times but not very often at this point. Having a 2 and 4 year old along with my 3 pups works out just fine.

    Oh I can show you proof that bulldogs are AWESOME with small children!!!!!!!! You just have to give them time and let them learn how to adjust to small children. My daughter is 3 and her and Jagger are like brother and sister. They sleep together, play together and even fight over toys When Jagger would try to nip I told Cate that he wasn't trying to be mean go find a toy he likes and play with him. Also, we make Jagger sit when someone goes to pet him. It redirects his attention to focus on sitting instead of nipping.

    Hi - thanks so much for showing me these pics! They are both adorable! I hope Cate is feeling better. How long did it take Jagger to learn how to "sit" and other basic commands? Do you have a preferred way of teaching him? Did you go to obedience class or use a treat training method? Was Jagger a puppy when you got him? Was Cate born yet? Sorry for all the q's? (Also, I'm not sure if I'm responding the right way... with a "quick reply"...)

    We have only had Jagger about 6-7 weeks. He came from a unpleasant home and bad situation. He was craving attention. I have not used treats to work on obedience with him he has a lot of allergy problems. For him I've used mainly positive reinforcement on toys. Cate is 3 so she was here long before Jagger. I stay at home so we are with Jagger all the time and I make sure Cate plays a role in his daily activities. Feeding him, making him mind, taking him outside and generally just playing with him. Jagger still gets time out for trying to nip or jump. Our
    Big thing is lots of toys and chew bones , he is a big mouther and his coping mechanism for everything he went through is he sucks on his bed, blankets and toys.

    Ok awesome. Thank you for all of this. If you have a minute can you explain how a dog time out works? I know you can't put them in their crate for time out. Is it just totally ignoring the behavior?

    I would say that most people on here do time out in their crates ... generally within seconds the bully pup is asleep!!
