    My 7 month old Jug potty’s on the couch and beds. How can I fix this. She will potty on the carpet but not on the hard wood floor. Is this due to using a puppy pad with her first owner’?

    I think that Jug puppies are so cute! I want to get one, but I’m worried about how well they will train. Thanks for the information about how to train them! I like how you say to use positive reinforcement. I’m going to try it!

    i have a 11 month old jug i got him when he was 10 months so trying to train him is hard. i can’t leave him alone unless in his cage or he starts chewing facings and cables and candles and starts trashing place really. he is just a wee devil and give him row and he just thinks he is having carry on. can’t let him off the lead either

    My Jug, Dexter, is a handful but he is very smart. He has a lot of Jack Russell energy in him and I’d say that outweighs the Pug in him. Despite his energy, he is very intelligent and is alert and aware of his surroundings at all times. He understands sit, stay, and will give me his paw. He holds his potty overnight and while I’m at work. He does have some issues like hyperactivity at times, but we are working on it since he spends a lot of time in the house and it isn’t his fault. Overall, I’m very happy with my Jug mix and I look forward to continuing his training.

    My 21 month old Jug uses his teeth to show huge affection. I have tried to stop this behaviour by constantly saying “stop” and putting one of his toys in his mouth. I’m spraying him with water too. When he gets very excited, he runs after my feet and bites them. It is becoming extremely annoying now. My young nieces don’t want to visit me anymore as they are afraid of him even though he is so playful and loving…… HELP

    We’re expecting our little Jug pup “Ripley” in 3 weeks, because of the lockdown we have to have her transported, which means she will be 10 weeks when we get her. I’ve had quite a few cross breeds in my life but none this small. I’ve done a lot of research on the breed, she is actually 3/4 Jack Russell and 1/4 pug, mum is a Jug, dad a Jack Russell, so most of my research has been on the Jack Russells, and I have to admit, it was a bit worrying, as they seem to need some very strong consistent training to ensure biting and barking are avoided. We are both at home so having time is not an issue, but just wondering if anyone has some constructive tips, we have Grandchildren so biting is an absolute no no. Nearly all articles I’ve read say the Jack Russell is wired a bit different to other dogs so needs more specialised training. We don’t know how much of the Pug and how much of the Jack Russell will show in her personality, so any tips would be appreciated.

    Our jug Lucky is 3 yrs old. Absolutely love her, but she does bark at any animals on TV, and some humans (I hate to say this but she appears to be a dreadful racist)! Any tips on this?
