Bathe the Pug as needed. With the gentle dog shampoos available now, you can bathe a Pug weekly if you want without harming his coat.
Why Brush or Groom Your Pug Dog?
Brushing also serves to help to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a glossy coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to lessen the need to bath and therefore lower the frequency of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Pug dog are activities that help to reinforce the positive connection bond between your dog and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and comfy experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Pug
Dogs with short coats usually require much less brushing and grooming contrasted to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more quickly.
Some very short-haired canines may not need traditional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to delicately remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should keep an eye on the condition of their dog's coat, looking for any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
The breed is often described by the Latin phrase multum in parvo, or "much in little" or "a lot of dog in a small space", alluding to the Pug's remarkable and charming personality, despite its small size. Pugs are strong willed but rarely aggressive, and are suitable for families with children. The majority of the breed is very fond of children and sturdy enough to properly play with them. Depending on their owner's mood, they can be quiet and docile but also vivacious and teasing. Pugs tend to be intuitive and sensitive to the moods of their owners and are usually eager to please them. Pugs tend to have a somewhat lazy nature and spend a lot of time napping. They are often called "shadows" because they follow their owners around and like to stay close to the action, craving attention and affection from their owners.
