Bulldog training can be quite a chore for the novice or even experienced bulldog owner. Bulldogs are notoriously stubborn; one look at that pushed-in face tells one all one needs to know about a given bulldog's disposition. Bulldogs are going to difficult to convince when it comes to doing something they don't want to do.
Of course, it's often the case that the things a bulldog does not want to do are those he or she is told to do. Bulldogs aren't much for following orders, a fact that makes bulldog training all the more challenging. Luckily, there are ways to train a bulldog without either party becoming overly frustrated.
Bulldog Training Strategies
One of the keys to bulldog training is starting the program before the dog is too old. Unless training is started when the dog is a puppy, it may never occur. Bulldogs are among the most intelligent dogs out there, and when they are older they are easily able to see through ruses designed to "train" them to do something.
Another useful rule to follow is that it never hurts to bribe a bulldog with food. Even the most strong-willed dog will have a tough time turning a succulent snack. Dogs, like people, are suckers for food–don't forget that when it comes to training day. This strategy works particularly well with all-natural snacks and treats, due to the fact that they not only taste, but smell so good.
