Made in the USA Dog Treats for English Bulldogs - Live Love Texas
Treats for English Bulldog training can be a great way to break old dogs that may be already set in their own ways. While for puppies it may not need to be as necessary, as praise is generally enough in most cases.Using treats for English Bulldog training will help achieve the desired outcome of teaching your pet commands. To get them to sit may work by pushing their bottom down, but a more effective way is by holding the treat above their head and slowly moving it back over their heads. You'll find that as they follow your hand they naturally sit down. Using lots of praise and getting excited really excites them too. If they sit, give them the treat with lots of praise and affection. Responding in this manner to any other commands you would like to teach will make English Bulldog training so much easier, with quicker results.English Bulldog training sessions should be done in relatively short bursts; generally 10 minutes is the maximum. When ending a session, lots of petting, play, and praise goes a long way. They soon understand that responding correctly to your commands and following you as their leader results in special rewards. Some professional trainers describe this method as the "earn and praise" or "no free meal" system, in which they associate their good work for a special treat or praise.

Let's listen in on a phone conversation between myself and a typical dog owner (we'll call her Kathy Armstrong). Kathy: "Michele, my dog Jake is being difficult. I can't make him do anything. He only listens to me when he's in the mood." Me: "I see. Would you say Jake is behaving rudely?" Kathy (surprised): "What do you mean? How can a dog be rude?"
