The Patient Task of Pug Potty Training or House Breaking
Just like obedience training, pug potty training requires plenty of patience and hard work on the part of the owner.

The owner cannot get too upset with the pug if it does not learn potty training right away.

The owner should take the dog outside three to four times per dayz and wait for the dog to go to the bathroom.

Eventually, the dog will learn that it needs to go to the bathroom outside to receive praise from its master or else it will get punished. Pug potty training can even rub off onto the master as the dog will find different ways to let the owner know that it needs to go to the bathroom. The owner should be on the lookout for these cues as the pug gets older.
