    Heidi is such a little sweetie & very well behaved. She knows sit, lay down, & stay (sort of, as long I have a treat). She doesn't really know "tricks" but she will offer her paw. She doesn't tear anything up or be naughty......She is such a little lady! Out of the 3 Pugs we've had, she is by far the most ladylike & well-behaved! I wish I could say it was due to my great training, but we didn't get Heidi until she was 4yrs old & had been a momma dog for her other mommy. I don't know if she is so sweet because she's had babies to take care of before, or if it is just her nature to be so sweet.

    Wonka was a "wonder pug" and knew SO many tricks and commands... but he still barked for food, "screamed" in the car from excitement and had other "bad" habits that we just could not break.

    Miss Beanie came to us knowing 1 trick from what we can tell = "high five" or shake. That's it - but she does it very well!! Since then she has learned sit and is pretty good at sitting on command. We've tried to slowly teach her a few other things, but she's still unpredictable for "come" or other basic commands. A lot of that is my fault for just not working with her very much. She's a smart girl and she loves treats so I'm sure she could learn if I just took the time.

    In the past, I've always found that the best results come from very short, but frequent training sessions. Spend 2 minutes working on sit or stay or whatever and then say "all done" or whatever your release cue is, and leave it at that. Do this regularly throughout the day - breakfast, noon, evening, whenever you are out together at a pet store, in a parking lot, in the kitchen, in the yard, etc. That was how Wonka learned the best... very short sessions, repeated frequently in a variety of places.

    That is what I tend to do, and I was wondering if I needed to spend more time training.

    Lucy is smart and very food motivated. She is growing up but still such a puppy and silly. I read on an AKC email that when the door bell rings teach your pup to run to their crate, great idea but not going to happen and I always loved the "place" where the pup would go on something a rug or platform and stay till released, not happening.

    I find it amazing how different and individual pugs are, as I said about Banjo earlier, he really is a good learner and was remarkably easy to train on a lot of things, but he can be a complete spazz and acts like he has a screw loose, our first pug Dave barely learned to sit and that was only for food, he pretty much couldn't be bothered with anything else, but he was absolutely the best behaved and easiest dog I have ever met...
