People of all ages love the companionship of a pet, and pugs are by far one of the most popular choices. Young animals like puppies are known for being mischievous and sometimes destructive. The information in this article will give you a number of tips to begin training your pug.
You need to establish regular feeding routines for your pug. Feed your pug at the same time everyday and giving your pug fifteen minutes to eat will help your pug remember when it is time to eat. Before long, your pug will learn to eat more quickly and efficiently.
Keep treats on hand to reward your pet for doing good. Begin by getting the pug to lay down. Then, hold the treat over your pug’s head and swipe it above and around his head, causing him to roll over. His nose will track that treat and his body will roll over. Be sure to say ROLL OVER as your pug is rolling. Eventually, he will learn to perform the trick upon command. Don’t get frustrated if it takes a few tries, once he learns this trick he’ll be the star of the pug park!
Training lessons should be kept short. pugs can’t pay attention for a long time, so keep sessions short and dynamic. If you want to train them more, let your pug take a break to get some energy out.
Call for your pug the same way every time. Your commands should always begin with your pug’s name. Get is attention by using its name and make it follow what you want it to do. Pugs tend to respond by name right away and they know that you want their attention.
Having a nice, well-kept house and owning a pug should not be mutually exclusive. Having a rowdy or destructive pug can make it difficult to maintain a presentable home, but training your pug can easily fix this problem. Keep the advice from this article in mind and you and your pet can enjoy a blissful coexistence!
