Pug Training

"Housetraining a Pug is like trying to get my fourteen year old son to clean up his room" ---Judy Baines, a PugVillage reader

This about sums it up...Pugs are not easily housetrained. Come to think of it, they're not easily trained at all. Whether it's housetraining, or training them to come, stay or sit, training a Pug just isn't easy. Why? Because Pugs are stubborn, independent and small...And they're also cute.

You're probably asking yourself "how does cute have anything to do with it"? The answer is simple really...Pug owners often think Pugs are cute even when they're not doing what they're supposed to do. For example, you're trying to teach your Pug to 'come', and he just sits there and tilts his head when you give the command. What does the typical Pug owner do then? He, or she says "awwe, look how cute Pugsley looks when he tilts his head". What will you train your Pug to do if this keeps happening? You'll train your Pug to tilt his head when you say 'come'. Hmmm.

The truth is that training a Pug to do anything depends as much upon you as the owner, as it does your Pug. And that is what this section ofPugVillage.com is all about...

...Understanding not only your Pug, but also yourself as you enter into the wonderful world of Pug training. It's a Yin, Yang thing. You and your Pug. Your Pug and you. Together.

We've started this section of the site with articles focused specifically on housetraining, and you can find links to those on the left side of this page. However there will be more articles on a wide variety of training subjects coming very soon!
