hi im new here sorry if this question has been over asked. but i am at wits end and need help please.

i have an 11mth olde Victorian Bulldogge (not neutered) how tries to be alpha male in the dog parks or wherever he can be. otherwise he just wants love from everyone he meets. he just wants to be petted and loved. I want to stud him once and have received offers and plan to neuter him shortly after. want his legacy to continue.

when he was coming of age he was humping anything until he got put in his place many times by dogs who wouldnt stand for it. now he tries for the smaller ones or even pups, and at the dog park he will strictly focus on them and try to hump and if they refuse the situation can get out of hand fast.

i have used the collar with the prongs, tried the obedience school techniques i have learned. but it just becomes too much and in some ways kind of like uh oh what happens if he gets the dog in the wrong way.

my dog is nothing but pure love but it seem when his hormones kick in, its go time for him. Many people have stated he is still a puppy, he is hormone intense and these things will change drastically once he calms down from the neuter.

please help...because trying to hold back a 100lb bully cant get out of hand at times..

any help will be much appreciated.

It is okay to breed dogs BUT it is best when you know that your dog is improving the breed...The best way to know is to have titles and work to prove it :D ..IF that is not the case then it will save yourself a lot of grief to just get him neutered, leave the horse s^^t up to the breeders..I am sure that your dog is indeed expectional but there is a lot of work that goes into breeding and it ususally best left to the pros...( I am not one of them) I know my dog is amazing but that is just way over my head....As for the dog park, it is usually best to keep Alpha's away from dog parks bc there is too much potential for a fight...

thank you for the response. i actually am still in contact with the breeder and my dog was recently at a show and has received his points. and it is a breeder not just some person i am breeding him with.

i have been taking him to the park has a pup to socialize because i want him to be able to play with the other dogs. he has been great until his puberty has kicked in. since the over aggression has started i have stayed away from the park with the intent to bring him back once neutered. i tried the park again yesterday but it didnt work out too well.

there are many dogs that are in the park and he knows his role and place, just i want to ask you guys know if this is based on hormones due to not being neutered or is this a potential futuree problem? if so what else can i do to calm this or train to have him understand.

Unfortunately, your dog is a dominant dog..neutering him will not stop his dominant behavior. I do not recommend taking bulldogs to dog parks as most of them are dominant by nature.. dog parks are nothing but chaos, as most people do not have control of thier dogs and it's just a fight waiting to happen. (please type in dog park in the search button of this forum and you will read what I am talking about)While your dog may not start a fight, most bullies will not back down from one, and generally finish them as well. There is no need to have your dog "play" with other dogs..you and your family are more than sufficient for that.

I won't go into the breeding issue...I just feel if your dog's breeder is mentoring you, etc. they should have warned you about the risks of going to dog parks, etc.


If you have problems with him while he is on leash and on walks, then there are some training steps you can take to have him ignore other dogs..just let us know, and we'll be happy to help.
