3 Great Ways to Strengthen Your Bond With Your Pug

| Published on December 12, 2016

The tenacious Pug is a breed of dog that quickly gets into your heart and soul. Their antics and companionship make them a dog anyone loves to have around. When you have a Pug, you want them to love you as much as you love them – which is a lot. You can help your Pug feel as strongly about you as you do him by working on your relationship. The following are 3 great ways to strengthen your bond with your Pug.

#1 – Training

While you may consider your Pug a lap dog, this does not mean he doesn’t need or enjoy training! Training gives your Pug the mental stimulation he needs while strengthening your relationship. When you and your Pug train together, you are learning to communicate with each other and that goes a long way to create a lasting bond.

#2 – Play

Play is an easy and fun way to bond with your Pug. Any game he enjoys is fine, just as long as you’re doing it together! Agility trainers encourage play with their students because they have found it creates dogs that listen better and work harder for their owners. For your Pug, play might just mean smothering you in kisses while you give that velvety fur a massage.

#3 – Learn Your Pug’s Language

What better way to improve your relationship and deepen your bond than to understand your Pug better? In order to do that, you need to learn how they communicate through body language. Dr. Sophia Yin’s website has a host of free body language posters that can help you learn to speak “dog,” which your Pug will greatly appreciate.
