Behavior Expectations

There are certain rules that Shelby has in our household, that you can expect Shelby to try and break while staying at your home.

  1. She is not allowed on the furniture or your lap unless invited. Invite Shelby by patting your lap with your hand.
  2. She is not allowed to be on the bed unless invited. When we take a nap with her, we set down a towel, and that is her signal that it's OK to join us.

If she misbehaves, and hops on you or the furniture, Shelby recognizes the command OFF. We use OFF as an all purpose command to quit whatever shenanigans she might be up to.

Shame on you naughty pug.

I was wondering how you clean Shelby's wrinkles. I do Bam's almost daily, especially in summer. He hates it! But it has to be done. We just had him shaved for the summer, fleas are rampant around here and nothing else was working. He looks like a puppy.

We don't do anything special. A wet rag seems to do the trick. Shelby hates it too.

There aren't a lot of fleas around here, but we're using Frontline, and it seems to be working.

Good rules. My other rule is that my dog has to lay down on his bed when we eat.
