    My jug Boris is amazing. Such an affectionate good boy, so playful and he has been very easy to train.

    My daughter bought a jug in her first year at college(against our wishes) and this year because she is moving into residence, the dog is now mine and my husbands (much to our disbelief) she did a great job teaching her pup to do tricks to get a treat, however lacked in the potty training department. As a result, this dog will poop in the house even though she has just been put outside. I need some advice and help on how to train an older (she is about 11 months old now) jug the ways of the potty! Please help!

        We crate trained ours. When you are not paying attention to her put her in her crate. She will not go to the bathroom in there. She will let you know when she has to go. After about a few weeks, she will get the idea to go outside to do her business. We kept the crate for about a year and put her in that at night. We did this after she was housebroken. Hope this helps.

      Take her outside every half hour to start with, Laury, and after every meal. It is a pain doing this, but she will soon learn that she toilets outside.Give lots of praise when she ‘goes’ outside. Make sure she goes on a walk twice every day – half an hour to start, building up to an hour.

      We currently have four dogs….mostly rescues. Three, through past years were Pugs and, a year ago we adopted an 8-week old Pug Cross from a rescue org. – accidentally bred, sire unknown but was thought to be a Chug (though I was…and am…certain Poppy is a Jug 🙂 ). We house trained her as we’ve done all our dogs, past and present. Tied a strap with bells on to the back door and, of course, from the day we brought her home and began taking and training her to back yard, the bells would ring. Within a week or so housebreaking was complete. Of course she’s also smart enough to fool me by ringing the bells whenever she has a mind to go out, needing to or not 🙂 But this is the best and quickest way to a happy pup and home.

    We were unsure at first of what breed our rescue pup Shiloh could be. As the months passed this pug like creature’s snout elongated and and sprouted whiskers and it’s tail maintained a nice curl. I would best describe Shiloh as a badly drawn dog with his small round head, long legs, big feet, and an underbite that looks like ill fitting doggy dentures and now with a permanent wave of fur running down his back. When Shiloh runs around in the backyard it is best described as a “pig trot”. He is a very sweet natured and shares our home with several cats and a Sheba Inu named Aiko. The two of them are of opposite natures where as the Sheba is a bit stand offish but their differences actually works out as they will play together as the Sheba will pull out toys and intiate games of tug of war. They play well together and enjoy digging holes together in the yard but not near the fence. At night Shiloh curls up and will sleep next to you and the Sheba will sleep close by “guarding” you through the night. I am glad they have each other to play with. The Sheba sets a good example of restraint when comes to barking as Shiloh can be vocal however in very selective manner. It is interesting when a dog barks on the television and both will watch the “show”. We are thankful for our luck in winding up with a “Jug”.

    My 9 year old jug has started scratching a lot. No fleas or ticks on him. Was wondering if it could possibly be a grain allergy??

      That does sound like an allergy, it would be best to get a diagnosis at your vets to establish the issue.

    How do we get our jug to become more social with dogs if he wasn’t taught at an early age? We had a terrible experience at a dog park so have been reluctant to take him back, but as he is a bit older now we thought he could be better.

    Does anyone have some advice for my Jug? My fiance and I got one 6-8 months old in April 2018. He’s a beautiful dog and very intelligent. Unfortunately he acts up in the house all the time. Part of his training /obedience as per a trainer is to keep him on a leash indoors. When not on the leash, in his crate.

    If the leash is off, he goes nuts. Loves to jump kick into you, bite your clothes, won’t let you lay down (bites and pulls blankets), and absolutely hates the word “no”.

    In addition, he was good with other dogs until a neighbor dog attacked him while leashed in the front yard. Now, he utterly spazs out whenever he sees another dog or cat, birds, squirrels, rabbits, etc.

    I’d like to give him to owners that are equipped to handle him but my fiance refuses to give up on him.

    Between his cost and two different trainers, A LOT of money has been spent on him already. I just want a dog that will listen and learn it’s place with us but my patience wears thinner with each passing day….

      Our Jug Dakota is on a leash outside always. We are full time retired RVers and she is perfect size for us. I think yours may need to burn off some energy. If she is always leashed, indoors and out, I bet she is frustrated. Our RV is less than 40 feet of running room but she makes good use of every inch. She will tire and nap, probably lying next to you. They need an hour or so of training/exercise every day.
      The fear issue I can not speak on, but if she adjusts well it may decrease. Also dog parks when not busy are good for learning social skills

    Do any owners have a hard time getting their Jug’s nails clipped? My Jug freaks out because my fiance tried doing it herself once and caused him to yelp, didn’t bleed though.

    Now he can see clippers and he wants to attack them. I’d like to perform this upkeep myself for various reasons but also I’m not experienced in clipping dog nails.

      BEWARE You can change the temperament of your dog if she has a difficult pregnancy, decide if this is really worth it. ours was a happy loving dog until we bred her, she had a difficult time and can often turn for no reason now. i wish i had really never gone down that road11111

    Me and my partner got a jug of 9 weeks for our children’s Christmas present, they were so happy🥰. He is doing great with toilet training, mostly using the outside and already know when he needs to go outside so the inside accidents happen very little. The only thing is that is bits quite a lot and pretty hard😤. Sometimes can be quite painful, I am hoping he will learn to be gentle as I keep telling him not to do it! Anyone had same problem? If so! How did you sort it out? Thanks

    How is your Jug pup going now? I have seen a jug advertised that I would love to get but we need the right dog breed with the right temperament as we have 4 kids aged 3,6,11 and 14. Our 3yo wouldn’t hurt a dog but she is a normal boisterous 3yo so the pup would have to be patient with her. TIA

    I have a jug named Butter, I’ve had him since he was 4 months old, he is now turning 13 yrs old. I would be lost without my lil son, yes, he is my son and I treat him such. He is such full of love, affection, caring and energy. There would never be another breed that I would pick over a jug. No one will ever regret having a jug. You have a friend a family member for life.

    PLEASE HELP !!!

    My wonderful and loving pup Dexter, he is fairly well behaved however my partner and I don’t know what to do as he will not stop peeing on our bed as well as his own, he pees on his mat and when we take him outside and we treat him with dog chocolate every time and he will continue to do it for a few days but then goes back to peeing on the bed, we have tried the positive training as well as the firmer training, we have also tired getting artificial grass and putting it on top of the mat so that it is the same material as outside as we watched a video and they said that it would help with house taring but now we are out of ideas, he is perfectly healthy we have checked for any signs if bladder infections and or pain but he is healthy. PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!!!

    We had a little Jug named Miss Melly. She was absolutely the best dog ever. She loved EVERYONE and everyone loved her. She would chase the tennis ball, retrieve it and throw it back a hundred times, get a drink of water and chase it some more. In the summer she would sit at the foot of my chair and in the winter she would sit in my lap by the fire. She lived to 14 years and 4 months and is missed every single day. We wish we had cloned her.

    Hi, Frenchie has come to me at 8 months. Lived in a crate, no lead training or walking, chip or vet input.
    She is now spayed, fully vaccinated and chipped.
    She is now poo trained, affectionate and loyal.
    Only issue I have now is her interaction with other dogs. She can be quite forceful in any environment.
    Advice welcome, I understand she’s starting late and I will not give up on her.
    She is my girl, many thanks

    About 27 years after my last dog before moving to a large metro area, I adopted a 3.5 year old spaded female Jug, which I had never heard of the breed before, in January 2018 from my niece’s friend/acquaintance and their housemate. They were both away too much of their combined time to college and work, consequently leaving the lonely dog home alone too much in an average day.

    She was named “Ladybug”, but “Bug” for short, which we still call her. Nevertheless we chose to embellish her name to officially “Pugsley Wilhelmina Magoo”, but she soon responded to “Pugsley” or “Pugsley Magoo”, as well as “Bug” with no apparent confusion. A week before the adoption she was brought over to our house for a “meet n greet” wearing a cute Yoda outfit looking absolutely adorable. She almost immediately became friendly and easily aquatinted with us. Needless to say, we were thrilled with her and were anxious to adopt.

    She turned seven last August and has been a truly amazing, beautiful and delightful addition to our home life, a real blessing we thank God for everyday. Pugsley has quite the unique persona and is an incredibly smart, loyal, affectionate, playful and fearlessly protective pet who loves to cuddle and just be with you as much as possible.

    The main issues there’s been with Pugsley has been a progressive reluctance to eat her regular food choices offered. I think gradually she’s gotten spoiled to wait out for treats she’s gotten too much of, which I have been working on with others in my household to curtail. The other issue is mostly shedding that seemingly gets everywhere, but is manageable.

    I’ve contemplated adopting another Jug if possible, or another smaller breed dog as a companion, but it would have to be compatible with an alpha diva queen. We’ll see if that’s doable.
