Question about theory

Does this rule only apply to verbs that use être as an auxiliary?  Meaning that any verbs that use avoir as an auxiliary wouldn't abide by this rule.

Hi Amanda, 

Verbs that take the auxiliary 'avoir' use different rules and sometimes agree with the direct object.

Please take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson which will explain the different set of rules -

Hope this helps!
