      Great videos. I’ve been wactihng some on you tube’ but decided to come here. Very grateful for all your sharing, you seem to have so much fun and clearly the relationship between you and Gabe is a great one. I got a rescue dog after my last one died. He was just nine months when we got him. I’ve lost a lot of the puppy years for training purposes. He’s come on a bundle in a fairly short time. We’ve now had him just over 6 months. I feel under pressure to catch up but some of the dog trainers say I push him too hard and that he’s only young.Clicker training I’m not very familiar with but I’m starting and your videos help a lot. So, a big, big thanks.

        I don’t think a dog is ever too young! You just have to keep it short, fun and rewarding and they learn to love doing new things with you! Good luck and above all, have fun with your boy!

    What a great dog! I’ve never seen a Bulldog as well behaved and versatile as Gabe. It must be the hardest breed to work with on that front. Cute web site and very entertaining. I first saw Gabe when his appearance on Letterman was put on YouTube.

    All the best, a Bulldog fan in Norway
