Taking care of dogs, no matter what breed takes effort. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The opposite is true, in fact. It’s because the effort one makes in taking care of their dog makes their relationship with their pet worthwhile. Especially if the dog is great at reciprocating the care and attention that their owners provide.
Pugs are some of the breeds of dogs that need extra and special care. It also makes perfect sense that they’re the best dogs when it comes to reciprocating their owner’s affection. Pugs are sweet and docile, no matter how scary their faces look like. It’s an acquired taste that only the lucky few have overlooked. Taking care of a pug is an emotionally rewarding thing.
Don’t let the extra care and attention for pugs discourage you from getting one. It’s nothing really exhausting anyway. For one, cleaning their folds should be done regularly.
Leashes and pugs also don’t go along very well. Putting a leash on a pug places them at risk because these dogs get strangled easily. An unfortunate side-effect of purposely breeding them to have the shape of neck and skull they are well-known for.
The good news is that they really don’t need to be on a leash, to begin with. Pugs are impressively docile. Owners don’t have to worry about their little pups running after a jogger or another dog. Or maybe they would run after other people, but only because they want to play with them.
Aside from the specific nuances of pug care, owners should also take some time to buy their little pups the latest pug accessories. There are great selections at local pet stores, but the Internet can provide a wider range of options. And it’s highly likely that online pet stores are going to provide item customizations.
