The Pug Life
It was once said that the pug was proof that God has a sense of humour. These breeds are extremely affectionate, cuddly and are excellent companion dogs. Pugs are extremely friendly and their patience makes them perfect pets for families with children. They are very curious animals and love socialising and investigating their surroundings thoroughly so it’s important to fill their lives with plenty of attention, visual stimulation and lots of interaction with humans and other animals too.
Caring For Your Pug
Don’t be fooled by those comical looks, pugs can be real thugs if they want to! Their curiosity can get them into a lot of trouble when they are young so make sure they are not left alone too much and that anything they can swallow is well out of reach.
Pugs do have their set of health issues and it would really help to spend more time on prevention than cure for these issues. Pugs are a brachycephalic breed which means they have a short head and a short nose on their flat faces. This causes difficulty in their breathing patterns so much care should be taken to ensure that there are no obstructions to their breathing at any time. A pug should always be walked with a dog harnesses online as a dog collar online can cause damage to the trachea and be very damaging to their lives. A light collar can be used as an accessory and to hold their dog name ID tags.
Pugs are smart and need plenty of mental stimulation. They love food and they love puzzles so buy sensible, interactive toys for your pug. Rope toys for dogs and others that they can chomp on gives your pet’s jaws exercise and strengthens it.
Pugs have a tendency to put on weight and this is extremely bad for their short legs and tiny bodies. Pugs are one of the breeds that require breed specific dog food, online stores are packed with a variety of healthy options, different meats, gluten-free food for dogs, grain-free and vegetarian diets too. Pug-specific foods are easily available among the small dog food online. This food will be formulated with ingredients that prevent your pet from putting on too much weight.
Pugs can also be quite greedy and eat their meals way too quickly. This often results in them throwing up the entire meal just minutes after. A slow feeder will ensure that your pug does not eat too much too quickly.
The Pug Coat
Pugs have a thick double coat and shed incessantly throughout the year. Every pug parent needs to be prepared for this ongoing battle with fur all over the house. Investing in the right grooming products for pugs is the best way to be prepared. Brush your pug daily to prevent the amount of shed hair decorating your home. You could also consider dry bathing products for pugs and dog perfumes online to have them smelling lovely between baths. Remember that natural and organic products for pets are gentler on their skin.

Got a Question? Raise a Paw!
What do I need to be most careful about when looking after my pug?
Pugs are prone to obesity, this brings with it a host of other problems as well. Later in life, they also tend to have hip dysplasia, which is worsened by the obesity. This is true for any dog. You should also be especially careful of cleaning their eyes and folds, speak to an experienced groomer or vet on how best to do this. They have difficulty breathing so rather than a collar, use harnesses that do not put pressure on their trachea.Show Less
