    Default Just got our first bulldog

    I don't know if anyone else has experienced this but we just adopted a 1 year old english bulldog named bacon. He was doing well with going outside to the bathroom for the first week, now I've is peeing in the house. He had peed on his dog bed and on the couch. Both times it was after he was sleeping. He did not do his normal "I have to go out" bark. We do have another dog, could his be him marking or trying to get attention? Please help...

    Sounds like he is marking. I don't wait for ours to bark. As soon as they wake up they go outside. Just go back to basic training with him, and he will get it soon.

    to the site. I agree with David. Go back to basics and take him out when he wakes up, after eating and playing whether he has to go or not so he will get the picture.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I'm having the same problem with the Mastiff we recently rescued. I have no idea how to stop it but if you figure it out, let me know! Good luck, I know how frustrating it can be!

    Try taking him out right when he wakes up. Don't wait! Meatball always has to go after a nap/sleep. Meatball also ALWAYS pees on blankets/pillows have no idea why. If there is a blanket on the floor he pees on it, blanket on couch he pees on it! So I have to keep him away from blankets! Very weird Lol!

    He is definitely marking. We also adopted a 2 1/2 yr old bully and he did the same thing. You could leash him in the house until you are sure he won't mark anymore. Absolutely no couch or dog bed as these are priviledges he cannot have until he stops marking.

    to EBN..... definitley is markig.... as others have said, get him on a scheduled and back to basic house training --- we have our two on a chedule and do not wait for a bark, it is the best way for our life style to make sure they do not have accidents in the house.
