Why did I Put This Together?
Owning a dog is not easy. Owning an English Bull Terrier is a whole different story. It can be extremely difficult and trying at times, and can definitely test your patience. My husband explains having a bull terrier as raising a two year old clown in a dog suit who needs constant interaction. Bull Terriers are extremely smart and innately need to have a part in their family. In my opinion, Bull Terriers are the best dogs to have the privilege of having. They are loyal, smart, funny, protective, and they are the best friends.
It breaks my heart when someone buys a Bull Terrier and ends up giving them back to the breeder, giving them away, or placing them in an adoption clinic because they cannot handle the dog.
About a month after we got our first Bull Terrier, Hector (he was about 3 months old at this time), the breeder called us asking if we wanted to adopt his brother for half the price because their buyer could not "hack it" and returned the dog to her. If we hadn't lived in a very small condo at the time, we totally would have grabbed him up and the fact that we couldn't still weighs on my conscious today.
I don't want to blame people for having to return dogs they cannot take care of. I could, but I won't...where will that get me? I have plenty of emotions about this, but instead of being frustrated, upset, and angry about it, I thought I would do my best to educate people about the Bull Terrier breed so hopefully they know what they are getting into before bringing a Bullie into their family.
I'm hoping that these daily tips will help not only help Bull Terrier owners, but all dog owners. These tips will cover training, behavior, nutrition and more. I'm an avid follower of Cesar Milan and a lot of my tips will stem from his philosophy.
