With their wrinkled faces and sad-looking eyes, pug dogs easily tug at any animal lover’s heart strings. But Wantirna resident Joanna Herceg isn’t just a fan of the breed, she’s made the small dogs her life.
Ms Herceg is president of Pug Rescue and Adoption Victoria and her home was chosen as the location for the state government’s announcement last week that it has established a $1.6 million fund to protect and care for abused and neglected animals….More at Help for abused animals – Knox Journal
Once your Pug knows a few basic obedience commands, such as Sit and Down, then he can begin doing some tricks.
One popular trick to teach your Pug is to play dead. This is a simple trick to teach. Give your dog the command to lie down. Once he’s lying down you will need to hold a treat where your dog can see and smell it. Then move it in circles toward the floor and tell your dog to “play dead.” This will encourage your dog to roll over and he should eventually be lying on his back if you keep moving the treat. Once your dog is in position you can give him the treat and give him lots of praise. It may take a few tries before your Pug puts it all together, but it’s a very cute trick once he learns it.
Many Pugs learn how to rollover, which is taught the same way as playing dead. You simply keep the dog rolling from one side to the other so he can get his treat. Use treats to lure your dog into position.
You can also teach your Pug to shake hands. This is also easy to teach with some treats. Ask your Pug to sit, then tell him to “shake.” Reach out and pick up his paw to shake hands. Give him his treat and offer lots of praise. You will need to do this several times until your Pug figures things out. While your Pug is learning, be sure to praise and reward him for any attempts he makes to shake even if they don’t quite work. If he lifts his paw or scratches at you those are steps in the right direction. It won’t take long for your Pug to start shaking your hand when you ask.
Once your dog learns to shake hands it's easy to teach him to give you a “high five.” Simply hold out your hand for a shake and when your dog starts to shake your hand move your hand to an upward position. Say, “High Five!” and let your dog touch your hand with his paw. Give him lots of praise and treats for touching your hand with his paw.
It’s also fun to teach your Pug to bow. Pugs are such clowns and performers that this trick will come in handy. Ask your dog to sit. Then, with a treat in your hand hold it in front of his nose and say “bow.” Move the treat toward your Pug’s chest. He should move his head to try to follow the treat. This will put him in the bowing position. When he does this little bow you can reward him and give him lots of praise. With practice the bow can become more elaborate.
You can teach your Pug to speak on command. This is an easy trick. Simply wait until your Pug barks and say, “Good bark!” Praise your dog for barking and give him a treat. You can teach your dog to wait until you ask for the bark (this is great for dogs who bark too much!). Your dog will be silent because he’s waiting for the bark command — and the treats that go with it.
There's no limit to what you and your Pug can come up with together. Have fun with it!
There is a saying that “Dogs are man’s best friend”. Pet lovers like to care and play with animals just like dogs, cats, rabbits and many others. Nowadays they are much more aware about the health problems of their pets.
The most common health problems of a pug dog are physical exhaustion, obesity, skin infection and tooth decay. We can avoid these health problems by the following precautions.
1. Don’t let your pug eat other people’s food.
Never ever let your pug eat other people’s food, because this is the a main reason that leads towards them getting overweight. Feed your pug nutritious dog food that will make their joints and spine strong.
2. Frequently walk your pug.
Usually pug dogs are used to sleeping for more than 14 hours a day. Just like human beings without proper exercise they will be prone to obesity or overweight as we call it. Get your pug to walk regularly, recommended daily.
3. Brush your pug’s teeth daily.
Brush your pug’s teeth daily by using dog’s toothbrush. At first your pug will not enjoy brushing their teeth, but in time they will be comfortable enough after doing this activity daily.
4. Ask your veterinarian about the pug’s routine treatment/vacinations against pests.
These pests will result to serious health problem for your pug, because of uncomfortable and itchy skin. Pests will be present depending on where you have been. Your veterinarian will advise you about the best precautions and medications for this problem.
5. Keep your pug away from great heat.
Unlike other animals, a pugs breathing passageway is only small, so they can hardly breath over 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and pugs must avoid this temperature for more than a minute.
