How Much Do Pugs Shed?
Tips for Caring for Your Pug’s Skin and Coat
Caring for your Pug’s skin and coat is very simple, but it does require a certain investment of time. Brushing your Pug on a daily basis should only take about ten minutes, but there is another important aspect of caring for your Pug’s coat that shouldn’t be ignored which are the face WRINKLES. The Pug has deep skin wrinkles on the face and some have them on the body as well. Over time, these wrinkles can accumulate moisture which turns your Pug’s skin into a breeding ground for bacteria. On a daily basis, you need to take a clean Q-tip or a baby wipe and clean the wrinkles in your Pug’s skin . After cleaning, be sure to dry the skin thoroughly to prevent infection. Some Pug owners like to dust their dog’s wrinkles with baby powder to keep them dry but i don’t prefer this option on my pug Lucci.
Brushing your Pug on a regular basis is about more than just keeping shedding under control – it also helps to distribute the natural oils produced in his skin which keep his skin moisturized and his coat shiny and smooth. As a pug owner, part of your basic responsibility is to care for your Pug in all aspects and that includes his coat!
