Did you know that if you train your pug incorrectly, your healthy and obedient pug could become a disaster for you and your family? It doesn’t take months for a pug puppy to acquire bad, stinky clothes that will haunt him for years.
Every dog needs training. The same goes for a pug dog. The best time to train your pug is the first day you have it. Pugs are usually brought into homes when they are 8 weeks or older. Wouldn’t you like your pug to follow your every command from day one?
So establishing your authority and commanding attention are essential. These two rules are the fundamental basis of training your pug. For some of you, success comes easy, but for others, even if you’ve laid a solid foundation, you may not be guaranteed an obedient pug. If you’re frustrated by your pug’s bad stinky habits, these 7 surefire tips will help you transform your pug’s behaviors in less than 30 days, if you apply them consistently throughout your pug’s training program:
1) Start training your pug puppy early. Old dogs can learn new tricks, however, the sooner your pug is introduced to proper house training, the quicker your pug will learn.
2) Communicate with your pug puppy. Talk to pug like you would talk to your kids, when they were little kids. Pugs can sense and receive both your verbal and non-verbal communication. Sound weird? Well, not really, it’s quite simple. For example, just say that your pug is misbehaving. You could just say “no” in a deep, angry voice. As uncomfortable as it may seem, your pug will feel it. So, you have to show him what the right actions are. This will help her distinguish between correct and incorrect actions.
3) Reward your pug for listening to your commands. Give them the credit by padding on the forehead or around the neck. Give your pug a variety of rewards. It could be his favorite food, toy, or treat.
4) Increase the frequency of rewards for your pug. Research has shown that the more often a puppy is rewarded, the faster and more efficient the learning process becomes. Look for instances to reward your pug with praise or treats. For example, if your pug is lying down quietly and minding his own business, praise him. Look for opportunities to praise, not punish.
5) Feed your pug regularly, especially when he is in the puppy stage. Keep your pug puppy hydrated throughout the day. When time permits, take your pug for a walk and tell him “Go potty” right before he relieves himself. Pat him for encouragement.
6) Never punish your pug! Teach your pug using positive and motivating methods. Proactively training your pug will produce better results than reactive training. This means that when your pug is doing well and behaving correctly, you proactively reward them. On the other hand, don’t sympathize with your pug’s bad behavior.
7) Play with the pug! Pug loves to play. It is vital that whenever any obedience training is practiced and at the end, the owner enjoys some playtime with their pug. You can run or play tug of war with your pug during playtime.
These 7 amazing secrets will put you on the right path to compliant training. Don’t waste any more money to sign your pug up for an obedient training lesson when you can easily save him. It will also give you the opportunity to create a lasting and loving bond with your pug. Therefore, it is worthwhile to train your pug at home.
