On walk, kind of far your puppy escaped, at any danger, at the command of "To Me!" he has to return to you immediately. For a pug the team "To Me!" has to be connected with something pleasant: caress, communication with the owner, feeding or just delicacy. At each feeding give to a puppy the command "To Me!". Put before it a bowl with food only when it approaches you according to your team. When he runs up to you, stroke and treat a puppy. Similar exercises have to be carried out regularly until the pug does not acquire team. The command "To Me!" has to be executed unconditionally.

6. "To sit!". Stock up with delicacies — the pieces of meat or cheese cut very small. Let's a pug smell delicacy, then lift it over it so that it after a smell raised the head. As soon as the pug begins to sit down to lift up the head above, press a hand to him on a croup. Right there give delicacy and praise: "Well to sit!". After several exercises the puppy will compare the team "Sit!", delicacy and own pose, and will quickly learn to sit down on command. Gradually increase time spent by a puppy in a sitting position i.e. give delicacy not when he only sat down, and a little later (within a minute). At the same time gradually you depart from it. If he tries to rise and follow - give the command: "To sit!". In ideal option it is necessary to achieve that the dog remained in a sitting position until you cancel team.

7. "To lie!". Put a pug, bring delicacy to his nose, order "to Lie!". Lower a hand with delicacy at first steeply down, to his forepaws, and then take away it strictly forward. The pug will reach for delicacy, its front will be displaced forward and down, and the dog will be forced to lay down not to fall. If he makes it only half, slightly press to him on withers. As soon as he lays down, at once treat him with the made delicacy.
