About him, beloved …
A pug is not even a dog. Alien creature. (I think the pug owners agree with me.)
Judge for yourself:
A muzzle rich in facial expressions was taken from a monkey. Oh, and they know how to make faces! In general, all the emotions in the face. Everything is clear without words.From a cat tribe – the ability to jump. A fat pug dog easily jumps onto your lap or sofa. Sometimes cat-like pugs lick their paws. To get a toy from under the sofa is not a problem.
And at the same time, he remains a dog. Moreover, he does not consider himself a small dog. Not afraid of dogs larger than himself. Brave and brave.
By the way, it was thanks to its fearless nature that pugs became official dogs of the Oransky house. There is a reliable story that it was the pug who saved William the Quiet, the king of Holland during the war with Spain. Scratching and barking, a dog named Pompey woke the king just at the moment when the enemy attacked the sleeping camp. The favorite of William I of Orange everywhere accompanied his owner and faithfully guarded him. When the beloved master died, the dog pounced on the people who came to put him in a coffin. Such devotion and dedication, of course, could not go unnoticed.
We can say that a pug is an ideal companion that can become a member of a large family or brighten up the loneliness of an elderly person. A pug is kind, mischievous, eager to always be in the spotlight, but not intrusive. He will be happy to take part in all household chores, whether cleaning the apartment or harvesting vegetables for the winter. And in the evening, comfortably curled up on your lap or imposingly lounging on a pillow, you will watch your favorite TV show with you.
Speaking of an apartment. Small pug dog is the most suitable breed for owners of small apartments. (The height of the dogs at the withers is from 25 to 33 cm., Weight 6 – 8 kg)
This incredibly smart and flexible kid gets along well under one roof with representatives of other breeds. With cats – no problem!
And in children, he doesn’t like the soul at all. For them, he is an indispensable friend in all their funs.
Pug – a little barking dog, i.e. for no reason he will not bark. So neither you nor your neighbors will feel any discomfort.
This is an extremely savvy dog that grasps everything on the fly. Trained as if by chance. For a piece of cheese, I’m ready to show the wonders of training (almost circus tricks). One of our pugs, for example, learned the Voice command the first time, watching her mother get a piece of meat for this.
As a socially adapted, non-aggressive breed, a pug needs a minimum of commands in order not to cause trouble in the house and on the street. Let the owners of service breeds not take offense at me, but pugs are not inferior in any way to their pets in terms of intelligence and quick wit.
Yes, let you not achieve such purity and coherence in the execution of commands, such as the German Shepherd, but these breeds have different purposes. The pug will easily master the elements of the general training course (OKD), because there is nothing more pleasant than an easily controlled, obedient dog.
One of the pugs of our breeding visits the training site. So, he easily passes an obstacle course (stairs, boom, barrier, tunnel …), and does it for his own pleasure. (The video will come later)
If you have acquired a promising puppy and want to participate in exhibitions it is advisable to look like handling lessons (showing a dog in the ring). Indeed, in order to take a prize and get a good mark from a judge, a favorite must not only look good, but also be able to move correctly in the ring.
If, nevertheless, every time you enter the ring you are very worried (and your condition is transferred to the dog) and cannot properly show your pet, you can use the services of a professional. Handler will show your dog in the best possible way.
As a result, one thing can be said:
Even if you don’t go to a training ground, but confine yourself to home education, so to speak, give your pug as much attention as possible, talk to him (believe me, he understands everything).
What you put in a small lump, then at the exit (per year) and get.
