Training Your

10 Tips and Techniques


Start Early

Begin training your pug as soon as you bring them home. Early socialization and basic obedience training are crucial for their development.

Use positive  reinforcement

Pugs respond well to positive reinforcement, such as treats, praise, and affection. Reward them for good behavior to reinforce desired actions.

Keep training sessions Short

Pugs have a relatively short attention span, so keep training sessions brief and frequent. Aim for 5 to 10-minute sessions a few times a day.

Be consistent

Consistency is key in pug training. Use the same commands and cues consistently, and ensure that all family members are on the same page with the training approach.

Use a clicker

Consider using a clicker as a training tool. Clicker training helps to mark the desired behavior precisely and can accelerate the learning process for your pug.

Focus on basic commands

Teach your pug essential commands like sit, stay, come, and down. These commands provide a foundation for more advanced training and help establish boundaries.

Leash Training

Pugs can be prone to pulling on the leash. Train your pug to walk politely on a leash by using positive reinforcement techniques and gradually increasing distractions.

Manage Barking

Pugs are known to be vocal, so it's essential to train them to control excessive barking. Teach the "quiet" command and redirect their attention to a more appropriate behavior.

Socialize Your Pug

Pugs are social dogs, and early socialization is crucial. Expose your pug to various environments, people, and other animals to help them become well-rounded and confident.

Patience and Persistence

Training a pug requires patience and persistence. They may be stubborn at times, but consistency, positive reinforcement, and a calm demeanor will yield results over time.
