Getting into mischief

Perhaps Angel is just feeling more comfortable now (we've owned her for 6 mo.) b/c she is really getting into mischief!  She keeps getting into my daughter's dollhouse accessories despite the fact that we moved it into my daughter's room and despite the fact that my daughter made a tower b/t wall and bed that Angel can't get around (so we thought!)  She also gets into my son's room trying to find something to sneak away in her mouth.  We close his door but she pushes it open.  Today, she grabbed my sandal and started chewing on it!  We've gotten her lots of dog toys that she is *not* interested in.  Go figure!  lol  It can be exhausting putting away every single thing we think she might get into!  Any other pugs doing this?

Winston does this ALL the time.  He has a few favorite things to try and run off with though, like dishtowels and WII remotes.  You're right, it is exhausting to put away everything and also to try and catch a very fast, small pug that thinks it's so much fun to be naughty!  At least he's entertaining though, I'll give him that .

Zena is the same way, she has lots of toys and she does play with them, still she can not resist getting into other things, like my shoes, anything she can steal off my computer desk. And most of all no matter where I put potatois she will find them and they become balls which she rolls around all over the house. Guess will have to install locks on the cupboard doors. And putting things up high does no good, I have never had a dog who can climb like she does.  She will do something she knows is wrong and then look at me as if to say, see I can do what I want, what are you going to do about it.  Is really hard to correct her with a stern tone of voice when laughing at her. She is so funny!  And my cat who is named Mischief because she gets into so much  of it is no help to me, as she will help Zena get things!  At times is like a circus around her with cheering on by the bird

Start lots of training with the LEAVE IT command. I know it is tirersome for you to keep taking things away but don't give up. When you catch her, just take it away and say the command and hand her one of her own toys. Have patients. They do figure this out.

Lol. Puck will get into things when he's not getting the attention he wants. If I'm doing homework and he wants to play, but I ignore him he will go and grab something he knows he's not supposed to have. Then he brings it out and lays down in front of me to chew on it. Its like he's saying "Fine mom. Don't play with me. But lets see how you feel about me chewing on daddy's socks!" lol. Silly pugs!

Sacha takes slippers, socks, towels, pillowcases, underwear (both clean and dirty), rugs, whatever she can find.  Oddly, she only does it if we are in the house, not when we are gone.  We have another dog (we know for a fact) who "guards" everything when we are gone, and will growl at her if she tries to take anything!

Charka totally does this! He will grab anything if he thinks you will chase after him. He also gets obssessed with one thing and he will keep on trying and trying till he gets to it. I do find that the more attention he gets the more he steals. If I don't have time to walk him or go to training I know he will destroy something
