Yes i am crying while writing this i just have to get my feelings out, my pug pup keeps pooping on my sons bed ,in the closet uuuugh, he has worms ,i am not training him right, i am trying to switch his food, he has diarreah,hes pooping in his kennel,i am feeling like i am losing the battle of pug ownership, i am so close to giving up!, i guess the only joy i have is when i look at him and he looks at me back, is this enough? I just dont know. The last thing i ever wanted to do was be a bad dog owner,i dont blame my puppy thats for sure.But this is really frustrating right now.I will be on crutches for about 6 weeks starting monday and then who is going to help me with the behavioral things we need to work on? At this moment i dont know what to do, i also was going to get him fixed this morning but i couldnt take him with the runny stool.Anyway i had to vent for a minute .

I just want to add a little side-note: Our boy, Bob pooped on our daughter's bed for a long time. He would actually run up and do it when he knew I was coming as fast as I could!! He grew out of it. He always knew it was bad but had to grow-up!! He stopped that but still has a stubborn streak about peeing every once in a while. Not in her room anymore. He'll be 4 in a couple weeks.

You have some great advice from these members. I think after the worms and diarrhea problem is worked out, you'll be able to deal with these issues. Keep us updated; I was so frustrated with Daisy's potty problems, I was in tears, too.

Also, consider gating off your son's bedroom. My dogs will always sneak off and potty in a side room if they can get in there. It doesn't matter how well trained they are. Have your husband feed Bugsy. This often helps as pugs are very food motivated. Along with a potty schedule follow a feeding schedule. That way your pup will become more regulated as to poop time. If he's pooping during the night move his evening meal forward or backwards. Good luck! Pugs are difficult but not impossible to train.

Your welcome! Ask her for some advice. I know boy dogs are more difficult to potty train than girls. But don't be discouraged, you can do this! I will say that when I got Penny she was afraid of my boyfriend (Wes) I think it just takes time for a puppy to get used to a man. Their size and deep voice can scare them. But over time, Penny has adjusted perfectly to Wes. She always runs to the door when he comes home to give him kisses. It takes time and love. Lots of love.

Please don't cry. I know it is frustrating to train a puppy.

First and foremost, you have to take your pug to the vet. If he has worms in his stool, you must get that treated. Think of it this way, how would you feel if you had worms? You would be sick, you would be upset, you would have diarrhea.

Second, you pup continues to poop on your son's belongings b/c the pup is jealous of your son. Pugs get very attached to their owners, (i.e. You, your the mom). Pugs are like babies, literally. This breed is willing to please their owners, but must be taught the rules of the household.

Third, how big is the kennel or crate? Normally dogs will not potty in the area they sleep. The crate should only be big enough for them to turn around in. If its much bigger than the dog, they will potty in their crate. A smaller crate might solve your problems.

Fourth, you must train your pup. The first step and most important is potty training them. Take your pup outside every 4-6 hours. When you take them outside, you must vocalize the words "go potty." This will teach them words to actions. When and if they do potty outside, you must reward them. Treats do not have to be involved, you can easily say "good boy" and give him a rub. Also if your pup does potty inside and you actually see him doing so, quickly pick him up and run him outside. Now, if you do not see him in action and you find the mess later, you cannot yell at your dog. He will not understand why you are upset. You can only discipline him when you see him actually making the mess. After a couple of weeks, you can reduce the hours by 2-4 and soon you will only have to take him out twice a day. That's the goal. Create a potty schedule.

Remember you are the boss, you are the owner. Dogs need structure and discipline. I have attached a link to Cesar Millan's site. You should go through and do some research. Don't cry, you are the pack leader, take control! I hope this helps you.
