The Pug Pup: Things You Must Do

Sep 16, 2008
The Pug pup is an adorable dog, who can resist its little funny face? And you must think so too if you are thinking of getting a Pug pup. Many of the characteristics found in Pug puppies make them attractive dogs to have in a family. They are friendly and loving dogs. They will keep you and you family amused with their antics. However just like any breed there are certain illnesses that the Pug is especially susceptible to.

Pug puppy care is quite extensive and you will need to make sure your Pug puppy gets taken care of properly to ensure a happy and healthy life for your Pug. If you don't want a high maintenance dog then the Pug is not for you. Besides regular grooming and cleaning the Pug also could potentially have some serious health problems. If you are not prepared for this type of care then you should probably not get a Pug.

Never buy from a pet shop; your Pug puppy will have a higher chance of having genetic abnormalities. Housebreaking Pug puppies can be difficult. Your Pug puppy is intelligent but it might not always be cooperative as Pug puppies have a mind of their own.

This is because they are mischievous and a little stubborn. Being consistent throughout training and always discouraging bad behavior will go a long way to having a well-behaved Pug puppy.

Cold water is an effective way to cool down a Pug pup that looks like it's over heating. You should also take your Pug to the doctor as soon as you can once you notice signs of sunstroke. A handy tip is to keep an ice bag for small necks, usually used by children, in case of such an emergency.

Talk to your vet before you get your Pug pup and discuss the potential health problems that could crop up. Find out about early symptoms to look out for and how to choose the best puppy out of the litter. The best way to go about Pug puppy care is the preventative route.

Avoid exposing your dog to high heat and humidity, if the climate in your area is like this all the time or for a significant part of the year then invest in air conditioning. Pugs don't do well in high heat at all.

Pugs are a breed that needs a lot of love and attention and if this doesn't bother you then they are ideal dogs for you. They will reward you with as much, if not more, love and are suited to anyone who does not lead a very active or outdoor oriented life. Because of their small size and low activity they are great for anyone living in small spaces or apartments. Think carefully before buying a Pug and when you do decide to get one you will have all the fun that comes with a Pug puppy.
