You love your Pug, there is no escaping that. She is like your child and you don’t like leaving her alone in the house at all. Fortunately, Pugs are so small you often don’t need to as they are easy to transport. But you fear that never leaving her alone and treating her like royalty is beginning to result in some bad habits. In particular, your precious Pug is always begging. It was cute to begin with, but now you don’t want her pestering everyone when you’re sitting at the dinner table with guests. It also means you can’t relax when you take them to guests’ houses.
Training your Pug to stop begging will alleviate all of these concerns. If they are becoming clingy and getting used to being at your side, then this type of training could help prevent them developing separation anxiety. In addition, it may be healthier for you to have some more time without them attached to your hip.
Training your Pug to stop begging won’t always be easy. It will take considerable willpower from you to resist giving in to his demands, especially if he is particularly cute. Training will consist of setting some clear boundaries. You will also need to get your Pug into a consistent routine. Furthermore, you will need to get everyone in the house on board. You have to take a collective approach.
If your Pug is a puppy then their begging habit should still be relatively new. This means you could see results in just a week or two. However, if your pooch is older and persistent then you may need several weeks to fully stamp out any begging behavior. Get training right and you may even improve their health. This is because if they don’t beg, you’re less likely to run the risk of over-feeding them and them putting on weight.
Before you and your pup get to work, you will need to collect a few items. You will need a bed you can send them to as well as some toys and treats.
Set aside a few minutes each day for training. Try and find a time free from the distractions of a noisy household. You’ll also need to be as vigilant as possible.
Once you have the above, just bring enthusiasm and a positive attitude, then work can begin!
