The right way and place to go to the bathroom is the first and most important thing to teach to your pug.
The house training should begin the day a puppy is brought to his new home.
At first you can train your puppy to use pee pads. However it will be best to potty train outdoors.
A little schedule will help your pug learn what he should be doing and what he should expect from you. Setting up a simple schedule can be very useful.
a. Schedule Sample – take your pug out
01. The first thing to do when you both wake up in the morning is take him out.
02. 15 to 30 minutes after he eats.
03. When he wakes up from nap.
04. When you see your puppy sniffing around!
05. Right before bedtime.
06. Every three hours for a small puppy, then every four.
At first, it can be easy to give him a routine taking him out always in the same place. Let your pug walk a bit after he finishes.
b. How to Manage a Mess
Clean up any mess. If you don’t clean up, he will continue to go in that same spot. This is the reason why you need to make sure you clean it very well and don’t leave any odors that your pug puppy can smell.
Whenever you catch him in the act of going to the bathroom where he should not, make sure to let him know that it is not ok. The only way he can understand that he is doing something wrong is if you correct his action while he is doing it.
The best way to let him know that it isn’t ok is to show your disappointment, there is no need to be aggressive, a simple and determined NO will do the right job.
Remember that this training process takes some patience.
A puppy can appear to be perfectly trained and then, without any warning, there is a set back. In that case, the first thing to do is to make sure that it is not due to a health issue like urinary infections or digestive problems.
If he is healthy it can be an attention seeking behavior.
Take care of him!
