Pug puppies face health problems more in comparison to adult dogs. Some of these health issues are overheating, obesity and pharyngeal reflex. That’s why they are in need of proper care by their owners. Before buying a pup, it is prudent to have all the grooming, food, supplement and other things at home.
It is very important to train the puppy; first six months are the best for this program. Be little soft and regular when training the puppy for its welfare. To encourage the little bowwow treats with cookies and biscuits are best. Keep the training for a short period of time, because little dogs have little concentration power. 5 to 10 minutes per day is fine. Whenever walking the canine, use a dog harness to ease the breathing.
Tiny pups don’t have control over their bladder, so taking them out every two r to four hours is recommended. Patience is important and always be soft with the pup all the time.
When it comes to grooming, then pugs shed more than many canines. Groom them daily; brush two times a week and them when required. Pugs enjoy water more than other pooches. So, bathe them using an oatmeal based shampoo and be mindful of protection of the soft skin.
Exercise should be an integral part of their upbringing and before feeding pug puppies, a consultation with a dog’s specialist is strictly advised.
