- Front attaching harness
Since Pugs have a brachycephalic (pushed in) face, strolling a pulling Pug on a customary level neckline for the most part isn’t a smart thought at any rate – the neckline can put weight on their sensitive throat tissues, bringing about breathing issues in a breed that as of now experiences difficulty regaining some composure some of the time.
Prong collars or stifle chain leads are additionally a major no-no with Pugs for the same reasons. A front harness (most have a clasp at mid-section level) will give your pup a chance to move unreservedly, and also permit you to divert their front end (and their consideration) back to you to forestall kept pulling. The best arrangement, however, is to educate your little four-legged companion to stroll next to you.
- Rigid Leash
A rigid leash is one of the best tools any toy dog owners can have. It is not on sale; you will have to make it yourself. Buy a light cotton web or a nylon leash that is about 4 feet in length and a 3-foot long wooden dowel. Put the leash up against the dowel with 3 inches of the leash hanging from the bottom, including the snap. Make a loop for your hand at the top. Fasten the leash to the dowel, along the entire length, with screws or wood staples. The Wind up tape along the length of the dowel for more security.
This will help you teach your dog without bending over to his height, as you often have to do.
Uplifting feedback – Remember how upbeat you were the last time somebody gave you a compliment or that time you got a work reward for an occupation well done? All things considered, your Pug feels the same way – recognition and sustenance (particularly nourishment!).
In light of the fact that the prize makes him more prone to rehash the conduct, encouraging feedback is one of your most effective apparatuses for forming or changing your pooch’s conduct! Clicker is one extremely fruitful encouraging feedback preparing that uses a gadget that makes an unmistakable “snap” sound.

On the off chance that you anticipate having your new puppy rest in the same bed as you, your canine will incredibly acknowledge having his or her own particular spot. Most pooches appreciate having the capacity to snooze for the duration of the day.
Keep in mind, since you have a crate does not mean you need to close the entryway each time your canine strolls in or exits. Your pet may basically see it as his or her space in the house. A crate is likewise precious for travel, whether it’s a street trip or in case you’re flying.
As you pick a case, make sure to keep a delicate canine bed inside for your pet.
- Dog Gate
This is a need for canine proprietors who need to keep their new pet out of a specific region of their home (more often than not the kitchen). They are additionally helpful for keeping youthful puppies off stairways, as puppies are inclined to tumble down the strides.
There are things your Pugs hold dears, like edible treats, squeaky toys, furry toys, or even small balls. These are useful in helping you Pug to do what you want him to. The toys will act as lures, or as rewards for some worthy actions.
- Your voice
Professional dog trainers agree that an owner’s voice is the ultimate training tool. Isn’t the final goal of training your pug is to teach him to listen to what you say? He should come when you call or stop sniffing the garbage you say stop. Make your voice a tool rather than some noise.
Pugs have their own verbalizations: when he wants to play, his bark is higher in pitch. When a mommy Pug corrects her children, she would growl at them.
Mimic this, and train your Pug to listen to you. When praising him, say “Good boy” in a higher tone, as if you are speaking to an infant. When the Pug makes a mistake, scold him gently with a simple word in a deeper voice.
We cannot sound like a dog, but we can at least follow what a Pug mommy does: use voices in highest pitches to indicate “hurt”, normal high for “happy”, and deep voice for “not nice”. No scream, no shout, and that is about it.
