Hello,
I do not have a dog yet. I want to get a bulldog and I'm doing some research. My friend has a pug that he trained to poop on these doggie "pads" he put on his balcony. I was wondering if it would be practical to do something simular. Could I put those potty pads in my spare bath tub or something? That way if he has to go while I'm at work he'll be ok. Do you guys find bulldogs to be easy to train?
Thanks,
Jon

What kind of bull dog are you looking for : English bull dog , American bull dog , Old English bulldog .............................

Buster wasn't fully house broken till about 5 months old.I found he wouldn't bark to go outside he would stare at the door and if we were not int he room well he would just go were ever he felt liek going so someone on here told me about using bells to train him and so I went out and bought large bells which I hund in his crate and by the front and back door.When it was time to let him out i grabbed his paw batted at the bells and said OUTSIDE well after doing this all day he got it that night and uses the bells to let us know he has to go outside.Best thing I ever did since he still doesn't bark to out :roll:
Invest in a crate.Best thing you can do for them to keep them safe and for you to keep your house in one piece while gone cause they will chew also they wont go potty were they sleep :wink: Good luck

Yeah I was definately going to get a crate. I want an english bulldog. I dont really know the difference between an enlish and and olde enlish though so if you do please let me know. Any thoughts on training him to go in a certain area in the house or do you guys think it would be better to just take him outside?

I think the best thing to do would be to train him to go outside. You do not want them to get comfortable going inside the house, even if it is on pads.

If you have a crate, then you will not have to worry about them having to go while you are not home. Just take the doggy for a long walk before you leave the house (long walk if you are going to be gone for more then a few hours) so they can eliminate in all possible ways. If you are just running an errand, just take them outside to go pee.

Diffferent between an olde enlish and english, I believe is the build. Olde english have been breed to be more athletic. So they are slightly larger in size and not asssss short of a nose, but still pretty short. If you go to the main page of this web site www.bulldogbreeds.com you will be able to find information on both breeds

i is unlikely that, even full grown, an eb is gunna climb into you bathtub to potty. you could, perhaps pick up a ,large, kitty litter box and train him to go in there. i know many people with small breed dogs living in apartments that have done this

I am not sure why you would keep your dog in the bath tub?
As fare as the pads you can place they any were you want your dog to poop if there smart
they will get the idea.
The trick to house braking a dog when there pups is to take them out as much as you can
so they know it's not good to poop in the house.

He said put the pads in the tubs for the dog to go on, not keep the dog in the tub. Not all dogs get that pad easy, doesn't matter intelligence way, it's HOW you train them to use them. English Bulldogs get pretty big (known for 45-50 pounds), and unless you want a big job keeping the dog in the house, I would consider getting a smaller breed. Otherwise, I would take the EB outside twice a day and consider getting a trained adult.

Again why on earth would anyone keep poop pads in a bath tub. Maybe I missing something here...

I don't know If EB's stools are as large as AB's but if they are I couldn't stand the stinch. If I go a couple days to long with my cat litter my house stinks. I wouldn't go with this method unless I had a very small dog. I personally beleive dogs are better off in houses with yards but that is my opinion.

I was going to wait until I got a house with my own yard but from what I have read they say bulldogs cant take the heat down here in fl and they will get stolen so I figure why wait for a yard if he cant use it anyway.

Im confused about this one. Wasn't the AB bread in the Southern States?. I always thought they weren't meant for the cold?. I know they breath harder in the heat because of the short snouts. Someone please explain this too me. :lol:
