    Does he know his name?

    Could it be possible Louie doesn't know his name yet??? We have had him since beginning of September and he either doesn't know it or chooses to ignore us when we say his name!!! I've had many other dogs in my lifetime all of which have learned their name pretty quickly.

    Well, I'd bet he's choosing to ignore you, there is a special condition called "Bulldog deafness" that is especially apparent when the Bulldog is busy doing what he wants to do. I'm assuming he reacts to sound!

    Ha it must be a frenchie trait.... Trust me my Marg definitely knows her name..... She just only chooses to answer to it every now and then... I swear I think she is deaf sometimes because she will be in the yard smelling something when I call her to come in, and she wont even flinch.

    Oh, I'm sure he knows his name! There was a time I had thought Jax was deaf cause I would be saying his name loudly and he would not respond at all. I quickly realized it was just him CHOOSING to ignore me.

    Re: Does he know his name?

    I definitely agree that it is stubbornness! I know Leo knows his name because he chooses to listen sometimes and others not. My husband doesn't believe he knows his name, but I know otherwise just from what I've observed! I love him to pieces, but he is definitely a bulldog through and through!

    Re: Does he know his name?

    I have to agree with everyone. He most likely knows his name and is showing you that typical bully stubborn side. It's probably not his cutest side, but we all have sides we don't love, right? LOL Ollie is the same way I can call him and he just keeps on chewing my slipper, like mom isn't even in the room.

    Re: Does he know his name?

    Thanks for all the comments I feel better about it now and yes he does react to sound so I know he's not deaf I guess he's just as stubborn as the rest of my kids!!!!

    Re: Does he know his name?

    I also want to add that I'm totally seeing the frenchie stubbornness Louie bites everything in sight and even my kids are getting aggravated because he bites them their pant legs and clothes and you have to holler at him numerous times and he still doesn't stop!!!! Anyone have any disciplinary tricks ???

    Boxy, my male frenchie only responds to the word 'food' and when he hears the ruffling of plastic bags.
