Pug training at home
Features of pug training at home
Pug training should begin immediately with his appearance in the house. First you need to establish contact with the dog: to accustom to the nickname, to build confidence. A pug should not be afraid of you, since a frightened dog cannot be taught anything.

When the puppy begins to respond to his name, it means that he already understands that the owner is contacting him and wants something from him. Next, you need to train the pug puppy to the place. The main thing in this matter is patience and consistency.
To accustom a pug to cleanliness means to ensure that the puppy learns to go to the toilet on the street or in the diaper. The second option with decorative dogs is very common, but you need to keep in mind that a dog accustomed to the diaper will be difficult to wean to cope with their needs at home. In addition, any dog needs a long walk, and a pug is no exception.
Another aspect of cleanliness is feeding. A pug needs to be fed in one place, forbidding running around with food throughout the apartment, and then eat wherever he wants.
Most owners pre-configure themselves that training a pug at home will require a lot of patience. To some extent they are right.
Representatives of the breed are smart and quickly understand what is needed of them, but are not in a hurry to show the wonders of obedience. They may simply not want to execute commands or do it with a look of a big favor.At the same time, if you persevere, then even a teenager will be able to teach a pug the necessary set of commands for a quiet life together.
Remember that a pug will not, like a student in school, study all day. The optimal time for training a pug is 10 - 15 minutes 2 to 3 times a day. It is also possible to consolidate the acquired skills in practice during the day, for example, calling the dog with the “Come to me!” Command.
Pug Training: Basic Commands
Most owners of decorative dogs are limited to a minimum training course, consisting of the commands: "Fu!", "Sit!", "Come to me!" and "Next!". But dogs that demonstrate the wonders of quick wits look very attractive. For example, a pug that brings the item to the owner, or a dancing pet.
Representatives of this breed will be the object of general attention if they learn to perform any unusual or funny tricks on command. Therefore, if you want to make your life more interesting, and turn your pug into an object of general attention, then do not be afraid of difficulties. Any pug can be taught to several dozens of teams and make an interesting friend and useful assistant out of it.
