Crate Training Pugs
How to choose a crate for your pug?
Food is a great way to lure your pug into the box.
If he’s hesitant to enter the box, place some bits of meat near the crate initially, then gradually set the food further inside the crate. Do the same with his/her meat bowl when he’s ready for feeding banquets in the crate. Leave the container door open at all times during this part of crate education. This will allow your pug to explore the box at his/her leisure, without the fear of you closing the door behind him. If he/she complains, delayed until he/she quiets down before opening the door. It may take several repetitions before your pug discovers the verbal command to enter his/her crate. Reward him/her with a treat every time he/she responds to it correctly. Practice leaving the house when you crate him. Do not get your pug worked up when you leave home or return; this could build up a lot of nervousness and anticipation in your pug. Don’t forget to take your pug outside to potty during crating lessons. This is especially important for pug puppies since they can’t comprise their bladders for long periods ( month of age+ – 1 hour ).
