|I've also heard that it's hard to housebreak pugs, mainly because they can be so stubborn. I think with ours we were very lucky! Rose was a rescue and already housebroken when we got her
Leo we crate trained until he was about 6 months old and then we got him an x-pen so he could have more room but not too much. He had maybe a dozen accidents during that time (never in the crate of x-pen though) and most were just like you said, because I didn't understand that pitiful, pleading "I need to go to the bathroom look". He's a little over a year old now and has free roam of the house when we're not home and he's been totally accident free since he was 8 months old. We have a pretty set schedule for potty breaks and I think because he knows he can trust in that routine he doesn't have to stress about when or where to go.
