Good luck with the potty training. We let our pugs sleep in bed with us & so the minute they would get up & move around, we would take them outside. Charlie particularly liked to go potty about 4 a.m. every morning. But now he sleeps through the night. If you want him in his cage over night, maybe set your alarm for sometime in the middle of the night & let him out. Just during the puppy stage. We also always had the puppy pads in their crate when we had to leave them so if they did have an accident, we could just change the pad. It is a lot of work but just take them out as much as you can & pretty soon they will get into a nice routine. Good luck!
It sounds like you are doing everything right. Some pups just take a little longer than others. Just stick with your routine & take him out as much as you can & if you notice him acting agitated or stressed. My Charlie will start running in circles & I let him out right way because he usually has to go pee. Chloe was stubborn. She took a little longer to stop going in the house but eventually she got it & she hasn't had an accident in a very long time. GOOD LUCK. I know it can be frustrating but it will get better!!!!!! Keep up the good work.
I think with us having two others besides Bella, it helps. She does what they do, so she is picking up quite quickly on going outside. She has started vocally letting us know when she has to go. Using repeat words, like potty, peepee, poopoo, helps them to pick up what you are saying and praising them when they go. My mom uses the fake grass pad for hers, since she's in an apartment and that works for her baby. Some pugs do take longer, I put my boys in a extra large crate while we were at work and as soon as I came home took them out before anything else...keeps them on a schedule. I believe crate training is the best.
