Train Your English Bulldog Every Day and Enjoy the Results

Don't chase away your Bully. Now when you step backwards, the dog follows you. Make it stand at your leg and give the treat. Then tell: "Walk".

Don't save Bulldog treats. It's better to treat the dog for several times when it came up to you, when it walked with you 2 steps (when you go backwards), when it sat down at your leg. Let your Bulldog have some rest and continue training. Now you do all the same but make two steps backwards only if the dog was distracted and got out of you. If English Bulldog walks along with you, there is no need to step backwards, just make it sit down at your leg with the help of the treat. Repeat the exercise for 5 times, praise your Bully and finish the training.
