Tips for How to Disciplining Your Puppy French Bulldog
All of the things that I’ve used to discipline my dog in puppyhood are mentioned below. You just have to follow them keeping the safety of your dog in mind.
1) Punish Them When They Do Anything Wrong
The dogs can be offensive sometimes; they chew your pillow, mess up the room, and pee everywhere. At these times, they have to be scolded and punished, so they can know that the thing they’ve done is not good, and they’ll get punished for it if done again in the future.
But, there is a particular way to punish them. When your dog commits a mistake, punish it on the spot, don’t think that you’ll do it later, or else your dog will not know what you’re punishing it for. Let’s say, your dog has messed up the room, but you were not home at that time.
When you come home after some hours, you see that the room is messed up, so even if you scroll it at that time, it won’t be able to know what’s happening, what are you getting so furious at.
So, it’s better not to scold it at that time; when you see it committing a mistake, just punish it right away so it can know, oh, I’ve done this thing which is why I’m getting punished, now I shouldn’t repeat again in the future.
2) How do you Punish Your Bulldog?
Don’t Discipline your Bulldog the way you punish your toddler, smacking him off, or some sort of physical assault. There is a particular way to discipline your Puppy French Bulldog in this situation. So ensure you follow that method instead of doing it on your own.
3) Change Your Voice Tone and Speak in a Stern Voice.
The French bulldogs are the smartest dogs in the world. They also understand anything you do in front of them. Even when there is a change in your voice or expression, they quickly figure it out.
So, the best way to punish your Frenchie is to raise your voice a bit and then say in a stern voice, no, don’t do that, or whatever you want to say.
But, your expression should look angry and your voice tone too, so they can next know that you’re mad at them. This is the right way to discipline your dog when they do something offensive, instead of beating or assaulting them.
Take careful notes that you don’t have to shout at them, or else the dog will get scared or get away from the room. A loud voice is like a threat to French bulldogs, you better don’t do that.
4) Be Positive with your Dog and Keep it Happy.
The Environment is a thing that we get influenced by a lot. When we live in a toxic environment then we tend to become the same.
The same are dogs; when you behave rudely with them or shout at them at tiny things, they tend to become sad and rude, just like you.
So, the best thing to discipline your french bulldog is to be positive with it and give it the unconditional love that they’re hungry for. Provide them with their favorite food, a comfortable couch, a well-settled room, and anything that can make their life comfortable.
5) Reward them
The way you punish your dog when it messes up your room, it is time to reward it whenever it listens to you and accepts your commands.
The French Bulldogs love rewards; nothing can be happier for them than getting rewards from their loved ones.
So, whenever you think that your dog has learned something that you’ve taught it, or it didn’t mess up the room when you were out, reward it with snacks and the thing it loves.
6) Teach your dog not to bite
At times, the dogs can bite. At their puppyhood, it’s somehow bearable, but when they’re adults, their bite can be dangerous for the victim. So, it’s crucial to teach them that they don’t have to bite anyone.
How do you do it? Whenever your dog bites you while playing even slowly, just say Words like“ ouch, uff” to show that it hurts you. And then go out of the room, leaving it alone there.
it would make it realize that the thing it has done was offensive to you, and it would try to avoid doing it in the future.
7) Stay Consistent at Disciplining
You can’t expect your dog to learn everything in one day; the dog takes time to understand your commands and behavior. So, keep disciplining it until it fully understands when and what it should do or shouldn’t.
Disciplining your puppy’s french bulldog is never easy; they repeat the mistakes over and over sometimes, you forget to scold them, or you’re not there at that time. But, try to apply the above-mentioned tips whenever you can and be consistent at training them.
