Are Chinease Pugs difficult to train such as potty train, learn how to sit, come, etc Or, is it just my dog?

Our family dog the Chiease Dog is not potty train and does not listen to commands such as seat Sadie, come Sadie, etc. She is also not potty train so, she is not allowed to come in our house without constant supervision because of the potty training issue. The ironic thing is when she was a puppy we gave her to a company the trains dogs. She spent about 4-6 weeks there and then she came home. But, she is still not potty trained and does not follow commands well. W hy did she not learn the training at the school we sent her to. Is it to late to train her now because she is almost 5 years old? Are pugs hard to train? Or, is it just my dog? My dog is a female if that helps anyone.
It is not my fault we gave her away for that period of time. It was my mom’s idea. It was not my fault!!!!!

    Pugs can be pretty stubborn. The are smart too, which makes it more difficult.
    I suggest YOU take her to obedience classes. It will teach you how to train her so that she will listen to you. That is why the training camp did not work. She learned to obey and behave for someone else, then came home where the rules she learned were not enforced, so there is no reason to follow them. You have to train her, and re-enforce what she has learned everyday. Not even children remember all the rules all the time. But they know they have them and what the concequences of their actions bring.

    The ironic thing is it sounds to me like you should be trained instead of the dog.

    You and the dog need to learn english.

    They may have trained her, but it’s your duty to keep the training going. And no it’s not too late to keep training.

    Well I got Abbey from my local shelter & to my suprise she was trained pretty good , & everything Ive attempted to teach her since I got her shes picked up pretty easy. However I was warned taht pugs can be very difficult to train as they tend to be stubborn & Ive also heard taht potty training can be a mafor issue w pugs. Abbey is my 1st pug so I cant say excpet for my experience from her but I have found that she has a pretty big stubborn streak & when she doesnt want to do something she VERY good at trying to get out of it….she KNOWS her basic commands yet sometimes does the opposite anyways & seemingly on purpose knwoing shes wrong!! So I would have to say your doggie is normal & that No just because shes 5 its not to late to teach her, I got Abbey @ 5 years & Im still teaching ehr new stuff. Maybe try calling the people who you sent her to be trained with & tell them of your problems w this they might at least be able to offer some advice as to why their methods failed. GOOD LUCK!!

    She’s probably not trained because you have not followed up on her trainings at home. Just because she went to training school for 4-6 weeks doesn’t make her train. You have to keep up with the training at home also. It’s plain & simple.

    And no, it’s not too late to teach her, but you must be commited to training her at home & not just leave the work to the obedience trainer at the dog school. The dog trainer can work with your dog, but it’s you who live with her everyday.

    you pug is just not trained well first what you should do is put a bell on a chain on your doorknob when you go outside for her to go potty ring the bell she will think hey the bell means i go potty then she will ring the bell to tell you she needs to go potty plus take her outside for a walk that will make her go. be sure that you walk her when its not too hot or cold out

    Pugs, in general, are not particularly difficult to train, in my experience. Nor should her age be any problem at all — my rather free-willed Puli came to me at age six with no training whatsoever.

    I’d look to your own enforcement of the rules. First off, sending dogs to a training company usually doesn’t work out very well, as you’ve noticed, since training companies train the dog, but not the owner. Even a perfectly-trained dog will not behave if the handler is not training correctly. I’d say the most common mistake people make when training dogs is not understadning what to do when a dog doesn’t respond correctly. Take this example: “Flora, sit.” Flora wags her tail. “Flora, SIT.” Flora cocks her head. “FLORA, NO, SIT.” This may or may not be what you’re doing, but I’m sure you’ve seen people try to train a dog this way: by turning up the volume. This succeeds only in teaching a dog “When I say Sit, you can ignore me!” What you need to do if your dog doesn’t correctly respond to your FIRST command is enforce it. In other words, if you dog doesn’t sit immediately when you ask, push her rump down. If she doesn’t come when you call her, give a short check on her leash. Basically, if your dog doesn’t respond, you must do something that says, “Wrong answer. Do THIS instead.” When she does respond, even if you were the one that put her in the right position. do something that says, “Bingo! That was right!” Treats, praise, play, petting, whatever she enjoys.

    If you use the sequence Ask – Enforce – Reward consistently (EVERY single time), I can guarantee that Sadie’s behavior will improve. If you want, you could try clicker-training her. If you’re interested, try the book I’ve listed below.

    Have fun, and good luck!

    You need to be trained before you can train your dog. I’ve never had any trouble training any dog. It is not to punish and make them fear doing wrong, it is to reward and train to do good =’s reward. catch more flies with honey than vinegar is true in many ways for many things. I’ve trained cats, dogs, horses, birds, reptiles, and other strange pets. You need to be firm, reward for good things, be loving and play with them. NEVER hit, or even yell. Using a strong loud firm voice, but not scary or violent.
