How Much Do Pugs Shed?

In reference to a Pug’s grooming requirements, they have a  low-maintenance coat that remains short which makes it easy to brush. The Pug breed does shed a little more than the average dog and they shed all year-round, so you’ll need to brush your Pug once to twice a day to keep shedding under control. The more you brush your Pug, the less hair you will find all over your furniture where they love to snuggle and your floor. Bathe your Pug as needed, taking care not to bathe him too often or it might dry out his skin and lead to irritation or infection.

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!
