Olde English Bulldogges are so eager to please that they may overexert themselves in an effort to do whatever is asked of them. An owner who displays a natural authority towards the dog, socialization and obedience training is important. It is best to channel high energy individuals to some type of work and exercise. The objective of training this dog is to achieve a pack leader status. It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in their pack.
This breed likes to chew and should be supplied with plenty of toys and bones. Nyla-bones and rubber “Kong” toys are highly recommended. Rawhides, soft rubber, and stuffed toys are unsafe, for they are easily shredded or swallowed whole.
Olde English Bulldogges are docile, but capable and protective, fearless and athletic, fierce-looking, determined and courageous, bold and friendly around its family and friends, but a fearless adversary to anyone who threatens his master or property.
When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader. Lines are clearly defined and rules are set. Because a dog communicates his displeasure with growling and eventually biting, all other humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog. The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs. That is the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success. This breed tends to drool and slobber.
