Our adorable 7 week pug.
After months of calling breeders and getting the same response..."sorry, all the pups are spoken for" I was starting to think we would never have a pug to call ours...until a few days ago!
He is our first family pet and we are just besotted by him. I cannot believe how quickly he & my children bonded. We drove over 2 hours to meet him and his parents and it was instant love...9 more sleeps til he is home!!!!!

We are truly blessed...
Any tips on toilet training would be appreciated and opinions on crating v non crating...i you tubed last night and although it's apparently a good way of training seems a lil harsh to me...
TIA

He is adorable! The secret to potty training is to never let them have a chance to have an accident. I used to tether the the dog to me with his leash and crate when I wasn't home or couldn't watch him. The second tip is routine. Get him used to eating at a certain time and going potty at certain times and stick to it as much as possible. Potty training isn't forever and the crate is not a punishment. Use it as a tool and it does work well. Good luck!

Thank you Cindi I've given birth to 6 children and cruised through the baby stages but i'm scared to death of bringing this lil fella home lol
Having him tethered to me is not going to be a problem at all!

I will be purchasing his crate tomorrow so thats its ready as soon as he is home with us. "Routine" makes perfect sense, i am open to all suggestions and heres hoping he wont give me a hard time.
Thanks again x

congrats, what a cutie!

i agree, early potty training with a crate and tether is effective if enforced early and routinely. it sounds harsh but unless you or a family member is able to supervise your pup 24/7, it will save you a lot of heartache and stress. good luck.
