The pug (also known as a bulldog) is a very friendly, affectionate, and they love being cared for, just as many people love their pleated face. However, this breed needs special care in order to be healthy and happy. This may take a little extra work, but you can fulfill all the special needs of a pug with a little attention. This article will show you some things to take care of a pug.
1. Clean all creases on the dog’s face weekly.
The pug’s face can become dirty with food, saliva, dirt, and other dirty grit that stinks and causes irritation for them. You will need to use a cotton swab soaked in warm water to clean their face. You should wipe along the folds around the dog’s nose and eyes, and must be careful not to let the cotton swab stick on the dog’s eyes, nostrils, or mouth. You also need to dry the water stain after wiping their face with a damp cloth. It is better to do it once a week at least, you also can clean their face everytime you think your dog is dirty or smells bad.
2. Comb your dog’s hair every 1-2 weeks.
The Pug dog sheds heavily and around year. There is no way to avoid this. You can keep them healthy and remove sheds by comb once or twice a week with a dog comb or a dog comb for shedding. Regular combing the pug will also help keep furniture in your home from getting dirty.
3.Clean your dog’s ears with a special dog ear cleaner once a week.
The pug’s small, pretty ears have a shape that easily accumulates dust. So, you need to clean their ears with a liquid, specifically designed for cleaning dog ears. Put the solution in the dog’s ear, and then wipe the inside with a cotton ball.
4.Bathe the pug once a month.
Regardless of whether your dog is dirty or has a bad smell, it is still recommended to bathe the pug once a month. Make sure the bath water level is not too deep for the dog to stand up. Use dog bath soap, available at most pet stores. Be sure to rinse your dog clearly after soaping your dog. Soap can form in the folds, so check carefully to make sure the dog is completely out of soap. Be sure to cover the pug’s sensitive eyes when draining the water.
5.Trim your dog’s nails if needed.
Pug dogs do not sharpen their nails naturally like other kinds of dog, so it is important to have them trimmed periodically. If you want to trim your dog’s nails at home, use a dog-specific nail clipper to avoid cracking. Always cut below the soft center of the nail, called the nail marrow.
