If you think about it, dogs are animals that live in packs, and in every pack, there is a leader who is followed by the rest of the group. Whether it is an adoption of a dog or a purchase, once a dog enters your house, you must make him see that you are the one who commands and that you wear your pants well and in place. If your French bulldog understands this, you will have a loyal follower and avoid silly quarrels when he does not obey your orders.
Tips for becoming an alpha male or female.
Prevent your dog from sleeping in important areas
Prevent your dog from sleeping in places valuable to you, such as the bed or couch. If he manages to sleep in a bed or the armchair, he will look stronger and think that he is the leader and that he can do what he wants (piss or defecate in the house, eat anything, you know what we mean, right?). If you allow him to be on thresholds of doors or in the passage areas, every time you want to leave a room you will be asking him for permission to pass, and that will also make him the alpha male.
Mark a game routine with a beginning and an end
Your dog is not going to start the game, and neither is he going to finish it, it is you who must do it. Your dog, to be healthy and well cared for, needs games and exercise, but that does not mean that it marks a routine since you are the one who must mark it. During games do not allow him to challenge you, that is, do not allow him to bark, bite or push you.
Never respond to their demands for attention, ignore them
Never respond to their demands for attention, simply ignore them (do not look at them, talk to them, or touch them, not even tell them to desist). Once he has stopped asking for attention, call him and give him all the pampering and caressing.
Although it sounds a bit harsh, the dog accepts to be relegated to the last place, without more, when you show him that you are a good leader. In fact, it is easier for any dog to live without the responsibility of leadership.
You have to always occupy the first position and never give it up
Your French bulldog has to go through the doors always behind you (the leader always passes through the doors, corridors, and stairs first). No matter how much he pulls the leash, jumps, barks (this is a clear symptom that he has the power), or complaints to go outside, you can not allow him to leave in first position, that is your position. If he interrupts your pace, walk dragging your feet annoying him and forcing him to get up.
Cares only when it is time and calm
When you get home (from work, for example) do not caress him unless he is meek and calm. If he jumps or climbs on top of you, it is not that he is happy to see us, but he tries to show who is in charge. Once he has calmed down, call him, and greet him properly.
