The pug is a creature that plays by his own rules. When you want him to sit, he stands; when you want him to stay, he goes; and when you want him to stop eating unidentified substances off the floor, well...
Traditional schools of canine thought have put this behavior down to a stubbornness that is inherent in the breed. Not so. The pug’s behavior in fact follows an ancient set of complex traditional rules. A Pug’s Guide to Etiquette represents an attempt to explain these rules, thereby advancing pug-human relations to hitherto unprecedented heights.
The pug is a proud animal, one who lives by a strict code of conduct passed down from pug generation to pug generation. These well-established rules govern every aspect of the young pug’s life, ensuring that he masters the art of good manners and so enabling him to mingle successfully in polite society. The well-bred pug should conduct himself with grace and savoir vivre, both at home and in company-that is where A Pug’s Guide to Etiquette comes in.
Containing 50 entries concerning acceptable pug behavior-from the fundamentals of personal grooming through to dinnertime decorum-this manual is an essential guide for any pug wishing to become a sophisticated, civilized citizen of the world.
