    Default New Member from Massachusetts

    Hi~

    I wanted to introduce myself... My name is Karri and my husband and I live in Massachusetts with our 10 year old bulldog Tank.

    I do have some questions regarding some things that he is doing that are getting out of hand.

    He barks and whines all the time. He won't let me sit down and relax when I get home from work. He can't hear very well anymore so I'm not sure if this is the problem.

    Does any have any suggestions as to what we can do?

    to EBN, I'm sorry that Tank is having trouble hearing. Has he seen the vet lately or have you told the vet about him doing this? Sometimes when they bark and whine constantly it means that something else is going on.

    to EBN!!! So glad that you & Tank are here… I agree w/Phil that he could use a vet check to see if he's losing his hearing. We do have members that deal w/deaf bully's that can give you advice if that's the issue w/Tank.

    I agree-The first thing is to take him to your veterinarian and have things checked out to make sure there is nothing going on with him health wise. He may be trying to let you know that something is wrong.

    Welcome to the site. You have been given some good advice already so there isn't much that I could add.

    10 yrs old, how awesome! Tank is probably afraid to be alone since he is having issues hearing. He could also be in some type of pain.
