Many times, a Pug dog will be so attached to its owner, that having that person arrive home after an absence will throw the dog into a crazed state of excitement.
This behavior includes relentless barking, jumping and even urination as the dog can not control himself. While it is nice to be loved so much, in this instance, an owner can help guide the dog to have better control.
In cases like this, it is best to not interact with the dog immediately after entering... Check the mail or get a drink of water...The goal will be for the owner to behave as if it is no big deal that he arrived home. Ignore any attention seeking behavior.
After a minute or so, approach from the side, not straight on. The dog should be taken outside for bathroom needs and once that is complete, some play time can start which will help the Pug to release pent up energy.
