Taking Care of your Pug

Pugs tend to do very well on high quality dog food, whether you bought it or made it yourself, take to your consideration that Pugs will easily become over weight if you didn’t watch their food and weight levels.

Obesity is one of the common problems among Pugs, so you need to watch their food and weight, this includes treats, also remember to provide your Pug with Fresh and clean water all the time.

Your Pug won’t need a lot of baths, unless he started to smell and got himself some of the doggy odor, or if he got into something messy that he need to be cleaned, and you should trim his nails every now and then since it can be really uncomfortable for him when he have long nails.

Because Pug’s coat is short, not to mention it’s glossy and smooth, it won’t be necessary to be maintained all of the time, but since his coat can shed a lot through his life, it’s recommended to brush it on weekly bases, you can use a grooming mitt, hound glove or med-bristle brush.

However, grooming Pug’s coat is easy, keep in mind that you might need to clean his face’s wrinkles, probably on daily bases for some Pugs, by whipping it with baby wipes or dampened cosmetics sponge, and carefully dry it after that.

As we mentioned earlier, Pugs love to nap most of the day, combine that with their love for food, they probably end up over weight, so taking your Pug outside to exercise and let him express his beloved habit of playing around, will exclude that from happening.
