    Default New Parents - Advice Welcome!

    Hi all! We are parents to a 7 month old bully named Seven (all of you Seinfeld fans will understand). This is our first bulldog/dog/child - really, the first thing we have ever had to be responsible for besides ourselves. He has changed and enriched our lives in so many ways. It is safe to say that we will be lifelong bulldog parents.

    It is wonderful to see that there is a community of people who share this same experience. We stumbled upon this site a few months ago and now consult the forums timely before buying food, treats, toys, etc. We are so happy to be here! Any advice for us rookies is truly appreciated!

    See you around! Meghan, Matt and Seven

    Welcome to the site. I would start with reading the articles on the left hand side of the home page as it has a lot of very useful information. Other than that browse around and ask questions and the wonderful people here will respond.

    Welcome to EBN!!!! Let me start by saying Seven is absolutely adorable and I'd love to grab his muzzle and give him muzzies. I too am a first time skin parent and since I have found this forum I have learned invaluable information that has helped my fur baby immeasurably. I am so pleased to make your acquaintance Meghan, Matt and Seven. Hmmmm let me see, frozen yogurt and peanut butter treats, raw carrots and many other veggies and fruits are treats as well, Sheldon will do anything for a piece of carrot patience sturdy toys are a must and patience, repetition, patience, spa time, patience oh and did I mention patience !!! Spa time has been such a great time for Sheldon and myself. I get snuggle time and he gets to relax. Spa time is where I clean his wrinkles put lotion on his pads clip and file his nails put balm on his nose clean his belly put powder on his belly and in the creases of his legs, clean his tail pocket and (recently learned that desitin is something good to use on his booty so I added it to the spa time) put a little bead of desitin in his tail pocket and he loves having his tail pocket treatment. I'm sure others will be along shortly to give you great advice!

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    Biggest thing is patience our bullies are very stubborn and very food driven, but they aim to please. They are just like little kids and have a mind of their own as we say make sure you find your mommy and daddy voice as you will be saying no quite a bit LOL They truly are the best most loyal breed ever and will constantly make you laugh. Make sure to keep the wrinkles and pockets clean we do Loki's all the time nobody want to kiss stinky wrinkles Oh and make sure that the toys you get him aren't easily destructible Loki and crack a tennis ball in half in one chomp Chuck it balls work the best for him Don't be afraid to ask questions we love answering them and there is a great chance that someone may have had the same experience as you guys.
