There are some Bulldog problems that are easily solved and one of them is potty training. The Bulldog is a sweet natured dog and he only wants to become a beloved companion. Potty training should begin early in your Bulldog's life and really as soon as you bring him into your home. The first thing you need for your Bulldog puppy potty training is a good and appropriate crate.
This is an atmosphere your Bulldog puppy is used to and will make him feel homey or secure. If the crate is too big he will potty in one of the corners and your potty training will soon become a behavior problem. Bulldogs are sweet natured dogs and want to become your beloved companion. They are basically easy to train because they are eager to please their owner. So your potty training adventure with your Bulldog puppy should be an easy experience.
Even though Bulldogs are sweet natured dogs they still need structured and disciplined training schedules. Potty training your Bulldog puppy as soon as he arrives in your home is the best idea. You must take your puppy outside in the morning as soon as he wakes up. Praise him as soon as he does his deed outside and take him back inside. Feed your Bulldog puppy and then wait no more than ten to fifteen minutes and take him outside again. Dogs usually have to go about fifteen minutes after they eat.
Do this consistently throughout the day and your puppy will get the idea that outside is the potty place. Always wait for him to do his deed outside before you bring him inside and always, always praise him when he goes outside. If he should have an accident inside the house only scold him if you see him do it. If you find it later, he will not remember and scolding him then will not do any good.
Your experience with Bulldog potty training can be a good one if you keep in mind some of the key rules to Bulldog potty training. Remember to always praise your puppy with treats and positive reinforcement when he goes potty outside.
Negative reinforcement and positive reinforcement are very important in Bulldog potty training. Consistency with your potty training is very important. His feeding schedule should also be on a consistent schedule. This way he will be going outside to potty at the same time everyday after he eats.

Just keep some of these key rules in mind when potty training your Bulldog, especially praise, consistency and supervision and your experience will be very successful.
