NO! We have our 2nd pug. Why we got another one, I don't know. She was sort of a rescue. Her name is Gidget, but I call her freak dog. She thinks my bed is her personal toilet. If any bedroom doors are open, she will use the bed . Obviously, we allow her limited access. We put a baby gate up to block the upstairs and shut the downstairs master. Also, don't forget to keep closet doors closed!!! We considered finding another home for her, but would not feel right about pushing her off on someone else. I have also considered rubbing steak sauce all over her to encourage my 90#golden retriever to eat her.

Never kept any of our dogs in a crate and they have all trained PERFECTLY. Few accidents in the first couple days but they all learned very quickly(one was even a Boston Terrior). Read some books on dog training, you'll be glad you did later.

How old is said pug? It is possible, but because he/she is used to going in the house, you have to UNtrain it. Unfortunately, the breed is not easily house trained; but it is possible.

At this stage, crate training may be your best option. It is NOT cruel, as dogs tend to feel that their crate is their safe zone and their bed. The theory is that they won't soil their bed.

I have had great success with doggie doors, also. They are ideal for small dogs, and give the dogs the sense that they don't have to wait or be let out. If you have a yard, try the doggie door first. \

Good luck!

Seriously, as long as we limit her access to the downstairs (minus my bedroom!!!), she seldom goes in the house. We do crate her at night, but she goes into the crate on her own when she is tired.

Cassie was a rescue. we think her privious owner was running a puppy mill :( she is full pug and cost $100. the morning after we got her, her bags were swollen with milk. when we took her to the groomer one of the people started to get onto me for keeping her from her puppies for so long :( i had to explain we got her 2 weeks ago and her milk is trying to dry up. I keep wondering/hoping if those puppies survived

i can get pissy and leave her outside for hours, with her whining at the doors and windows, and as soon as i let her in she makes a beeline to in the house!


it's almost like she prefers to poo in the house...This is our second pug and i remember the first one hated me so she would pee on my rug. She very rarely poo'ed in the house though

+1 to crate tranning! It is the best way to house train a dog! Take Jets advise and go buy a crate just big enough for the dog! If you get a large one the dog will just use a corner and you will have defeated the purpose!

I am no big expert but seemed to me that a lot of folks here give you right advice. I'd agree with Brandy - if your pug is crate trained - keep her in the crate for T hours. Where T is the average number of hours between number twos. (for my dog T=12 - he goes twice a day). At the end of her "time" take her our immediately and dont go back in unless she poops. If she didnt do it right away, you may have to walk her a bit. My doggie usually gets his bowel working after a little walk. After she poops reward her with the treat and put her back in the crate. Repeat for a few days.

1) It is not as cruel as it sounds - dogs are den animals - my dog loves his crate
2) while she is in the crate you can still pick her up - snuggle with her on the couch, play, etc (I assume she wont while snuggling) but then put her back.

Finally, I suspect there might be a dominance issue here. Certainly the case of other person (two pugs) is a dominating case. Your pug pooping in ur bed is trying to tell you that she owns you. She pwns the place where you sleep
Funny but true. You have to teach the pug that she is the noob and you are the one that pwns her.

most dogs HATE having their noses rubbed in their poo! If you catch em in the act, CALMLY and firmly rub their face in it and tell em no, then take outside. Praise em whenever they do go outside...

You set the rules.

If you are crate training, you can't just use it sometimes. You have to stick with it until the dog 'gets it' ! Otherwise you are just wasting your time.

Good Luck!

To house train you need to watch her at ALL times, unless in her crate, until she is trained. It's a pain in the , but it will be much harder if you don't watch her and she runs off in another room. You have to watch at all times and when you see her start sniffing around and giving signs that she's about to go you have to bring them outside and say "Go Potty". When she goes outside immediately reward her with petting, words or better yet treats (we trained our puppy with treats in just a couple weeks). If you don't watch her then she'll get in the habit to go in the house since you can't catch or see her (which seems to be the case already). Don't punish but reward when she does the right thing. Also, I don't know how well crate trained she is but treat her when you put her in her crate and tell her "Go load up, or get in bed" and never stick her in the crate for punishment. You want to teach her that the crate is a safe and comfortable place (our dog gets in his crate even to take naps while we're home and his door is open). That's how you train dogs; reward them immediately after they did the right thing (by you telling/showing them) and they will begin to learn until it becomes a habit later on. If you want to learn more about training either search online or even take her to PetSmart for training once a week for about 45 minutes to an hour.
