These short English bulldog obedience tips are directed to new pet owners. It was not long ago when I was one of those who got dogs thinking that it is like TV that I can shut off whenever I get bored. What I did not realize then was dogs, just like humans, has its own personality and behavior. For this reasons, dogs must be tamed and trained by its owners. Dog obedience is needed in order that the owner and its pet will live harmoniously and enjoy each other well.

He is a very observant creature and what he see and observes in your attitude will be mimic towards you and others. The more playful you are with your dog, the more he will be energize to have constant physical activities with you. If you happen to be a couch potato, then don’t be surprised to discover that you are having Garfield instead of your dog. As a role model, you have to make the dog understand that you are his master, and friend of course, so that he will follow your orders and instructions.
You can train your English bulldog on your own. In training your dog, the number one rule is to be patient as your pet counterpart isn’t. Don’t rush the training and make your dog learn the ropes step by step. Make your lessons short, approximately 10 minutes each session. To make your dog participate more, institute the reward system. Give treats for good work and never punish when your dog was not able to follow. The trick here is repetition. Be consistent with your training. If your training after his meal at certain time of the day then stick to that schedule so as not confuse him.
Lastly, if all of your effort did not succeed, don’t blame yourself nor your dog. There are professionals who can help you with this. Enroll your pet in a dog obedience class. You can find a lot of this kind of school in your neighborhood.
I hope that this simple dog obedience tips has help you in your quest to have a great relationship with your new friend.
