Basic Care For Pug Puppies

Jun 9, 2008
A Pug is a wonderful breed to adopt and learning how to care for Pug puppies is imperative before you bring a new puppy into your home.

Proper food and nutrition is essential for your Pugs overall health, especially in his first year. It really helps to ward off a lot of health ailments and makes your Pug sharper, so pay special attention to what you are feeding him.

But how do you go about finding the best food for your Pug puppy?

Be sure to read the dog food label to make sure it's loaded with nutritious ingredients. The first ingredient listed should be protein -- chicken, lamb, or beef meal. Don't start feeding your pug table scraps, and help him live a long and healthy life by not overfeeding him.

Don't forget to stock up on all the necessary supplies for your Pug puppy. He'll need food and water bowls, a sturdy harness, a leash, and a cozy bed of his own. And for doggy playtime, don't forget his toys!

Food and water bowls for your pug should be wide but shallow. Dishes that are too narrow or deep can cause your puppy to get food or drink in his eyes, and cause eye infections.

Plan ahead when choosing a crate and dog bed for your Pug. That puppy may be tiny now, but eventually he's going to grow, and he'll need a bed that will also fit him when he's full-sized. One solution is to get a crate that comes with a partition. This will allow you to create a cozy bed for your Pug puppy, and then take out the partition when he's larger.

When choosing the leash and collar, a harness is a much better choice for your Pug than a standard collar, which can potentially choke your dog if he pulls against the collar too strongly. A harness safeguards your Pug's windpipe, since it doesn't cause any pressure on that area.

Common sense and basic dog care are the main components of learning to care for pug puppies. As long as they receive proper nutrition, vet case and plenty of love, the puppy will be your happy and healthy companion.
