Bringing a new puppy into your home is a joyous occasion filled with lots of excitement. However, it’s also a time that comes with new responsibilities, including the task of training. Here at Texas Hilltop Bullies and Frenchies, we want to set our puppies up for a successful transition into their forever homes. That’s why we’ve put together this helpful guide with some top tips for training your new Frenchie or Bully puppy.

Start Training Early

Start as soon as your puppy comes home. At this stage, your puppy is like a sponge, ready to absorb all the training and lessons you can give. Simple commands like “sit,” “stay,” and “come” can be introduced early.

Consistency is Key

Being consistent with commands and responses helps your puppy understand what is expected of them. This means using the same command words and actions every time and ensuring all family members do the same.

Positive Reinforcement

Both Bullies and Frenchies respond well to positive reinforcement. This means rewarding them with treats, praise, or playtime whenever they exhibit the desired behavior. This makes the training process more enjoyable for your puppy and increases the likelihood they will repeat these behaviors.


Introducing your puppy to a variety of experiences, people, and other animals can help them become well-rounded dogs. It’s crucial for Frenchies and Bullies, who are naturally sociable breeds, to learn to interact safely and comfortably with the world around them.

Patience and Persistence

Training a puppy requires patience. Don’t expect your Frenchie or Bully to learn everything overnight. They may take some time to fully grasp certain commands or behaviors. Keep persisting with the training, and over time, you’ll see the results of your hard work.

Professional Training Classes

Consider enrolling your puppy in a professional training class. This can be particularly beneficial for new owners, but even experienced owners may find these classes helpful. They offer a structured environment where your puppy can learn essential commands and socialization skills.

Remember to Have Fun!

Last but certainly not least, remember to have fun! Training should be an enjoyable experience for both you and your puppy. The more fun your puppy has, the more likely they are to respond positively to the training.

Remember, every puppy is unique, and what works for one might not work for another. The most important thing is to find a method that works best for you and your new Frenchie or Bully.
