A Jug

So.....today for five hours, I 'baby' sat a Jug. Nine weeks old Jug.
That is a Pug cross with a Jack Russell.

The owner (friend of ours) bought her yesterday. $4000.00. Blaady hell! Today owner goes off on a five hour shopping expedition to get the gear to look after Maddi. I was stuck for those five hours.......yes, I volunteered.

This thing was little. Obviously pug and little impact (but there was some) on the length of nose from the JR. Fugly, but cute.

Thing was a clingy shadow terrier! Never left my feet......until she got bored with my feet as I walked around. Quick as a flash on to my feet.

I was sneaky. I had liver treats (in very small bits) in my pocket!

Ha! Using said treats.....Maddi now knows what the doggy door is!

Tried the sit thing...but she was having none of that.....for now. I will win, in time if the owner does not stuff her up

Maddi.....

Shortnosed dog like that—breathing problems all its life. Demi snored but no breathing problem.

Don’t like pugs.

To make her sit—move a treat backwards over its head.

You have obviously never tried that. I did exactly that. No, does not work. Thing jumps up to get your hand, instead of plonking arse down.

I'll try that one! I just push their chest and lower their backside...

and you say 'no' and take your hand away . Wait a few seconds and repeat the process. She'll quickly figure out what you want.

I'll give it a go. I have to get in and sort this thing (it has Jack Russell in it.....so potentially a bossy rebellious arsehole) before woman owner fucks it up with dotage.

it's all in the tone of voice ... if you say 'no' like it's a little cutsie dog you want to cuddle, it'll most likely ignore you because it thinks you're happy with it. Say 'NO' as if you're going to rip it's throat out if he doesn't listen. That way there can be no misunderstanding that you aren't happy. Don't forget to follow huge praise pats and cuddles when he does listen. You have to overplay your hand both ways for the best result.

The treat needs to be close to the head and move the hand with the treat in it briskly. You will get there.

(a nice topic for Critters & Gardens over =====> there.
