Understanding and Training a Bulldog


The Bulldog is a slow, but willing learner, responding to early, extremely patient and persistent obedience training.

The breed is also mildly stubborn, yet dignified and surprisingly sensitive, therefore do not jerk and excessively correct your Bulldog. They do take longer to learn, but will remember what they learn if you practise patience.

Due to the Bulldog nature, it is likely to take more effort to encourage exercise and expect perfectly exact training results.

Brief History

Originated in Great Britain as a bull fighter, but since its banning in 1835, the ferocity has been bred out, in lieu of more exaggerated physical characteristics. Not unlike many breeds, Bulldog standards vary widely from country to country.
