Pug Dog Info All Pug Dog Owners Must Know

Pug Dog Info All Pug Dog Owners Must Know

Pugs are cute and comical, a great pet for any family but if you are thinking about adopting one, there is some Pug information that you need to be aware of.

Before adopting any pet, you need to make sure that you can provide for the comfort and safety of the pet. Pugs are not outdoor dogs, so you must be prepared to keep the pug indoors which means setting up a proper sleeping area for your new furry friend.

Also, if you are not home during the day, you will need to think about where you will keep the Pug when you are at work. Will you use a crate or let him roam free? Decide this beforehand so you can be ready with the appropriate supplies.

Pugs are sociable animals which make them good family pets, but this also means that you will need to dedicate time to spend with your pug. You can’t leave your pug alone for extended lengths of time or you may find that he gets up to quite a bit of mischief.

Pug dog information pertaining to exercise is encouraging since they don’t really require much. In fact, a lot of Pugs are actually quite lazy and you will probably have to do a bit of work to encourage him to go out for a walk. Be that as it may, walks are a vital part of any dogs day so you should plan for at least 20 minutes of walk time each day.

When it comes to grooming, your Pug does have some special needs. One of the most interesting features of the Pug is his wrinkly facial skin, but these same wrinkles can actually be a health hazard for your pug because they can harbor dirt and germs. Therefore, you need to take the time to clean in between these folds periodically. Although Pugs have a short coat, they do shed so frequent brushing is recommended. Just like any other dog, you will need to trim your Pugs nails, keep his ears clean and brush his teeth.

When it comes to feeding a Pug, one need to practice restraint. This is because the Pug can tend to overeat and will easily gain weight. Excess weight on any dog and on Pugs in particular can cause a variety of health issues so in order to keep your Pug healthy, make sure you only feed him good quality food and don’t over do it!

Of course no Pug dog information discussion would be complete without stating that your Pug should have regular Veterinarian visits and that you should bring your dog in should you notice any change in behavior.

Pugs are wonderful companions and can live 15 years or more provided they get the proper care and nutrition.

Arming yourself with the proper pug dog information is the only way that you can insure you give your pug everything he needs to be happy, healthy and long lived. You can learn everything you need to know about Pug care in The Pug Guide. Learn about pug dog health.

Healthy Dog Food – How Do You Find One

Healthy Dog Food – How Do You Find One

Most people don’t stop to think about the food they are giving their dog. The colourful packs on the laden supermarket shelves are normally as far as people give dog food a thought. You may be one of them, but are now branching out and looking for something a bit healthier.

Believe me, the packs can look tempting and with smiling veterinarians and dog breeders on the cover, you’re not that hard to convince.

But stop for a moment and consider a wild dog’s diet. Dogs are naturally pack animals and so they hunt in packs. They can bring down a large animal, as large as a cow, with their combined efforts. Then they all gather round, with much growling and snarling and consume most of the carcass, bones and all. Probably the only parts left is the hide and hooves.

Whether or not you can accept this idea, that’s how dogs evolved. And the wild dogs still manage very well. This is the most healthy dog food. There is nothing that can beat it.

Man, with his puny pseudo scientific ideas of improving on the natural diet of dogs is going down a dead end. You can’t.

Period.

There is only one type of healthy dog food. And that is the one which so closely resembles a wild dog’s diet, as to be virtually the same as far as health benefits are concerned.

Lets look at some of the differences between a wild dog’s diet and commercial dog food, a diet most dogs exist on (I won’t say live, as it’’s hardly a life).

A wild diet, a healthy dog food, consists of:

raw food
lots of raw bones
internal organs are consumed, but these are scarce compared with the muscle meat
carbohydrates which are limited to the stomach contents, so is small in the overall content

A typical commercial dog food consists of:

cooked food (many vitamins, enzymes and other nutrients are destroyed by cooking)
the meat is of poor (often extremely poor) quality (humans get the good stuff)
carbohydrates, in particular sugar, are a major part of the food – it’s cheap and bulks out the ‘meat’
the food is fortified with strong preservatives (not allowed in human food for their dangerous impact on health) – DESPITE WHAT THE LABEL SAYS
to try to redress the nutritional imbalance, isolated and synthetic nutrients are added – nutrients which can’t be properly absorbed and utilised when they are in isolation, or if they are synthetic

So in your search for a healthy dog food, keep firmly in mind the diet of a wild dog. It’s OK to take your time to get used to the idea. If you find the idea repulsive, just go slowly. Try to replace one thing at a time. Just keep in mind that dogs have evolved over millions of years, on this diet. Humans have only been producing (poor quality) commercial dog food for a few decades.

If you don’t like the idea of raw meat for your dog, that’s your issue, not his.

I also suggest that you keep in mind the concept that most people are lured by price. With the best will in the world, if a commercial pet food manufacturer suddenly started to produce quality pet food, because it would be more expensive, do you think it would be a sell-out?

That would only be possible if people had already started to reject the current commercial dog food and were now looking for a healthy dog food, so were prepared to pay a little more.

However, if you make your own dog food, you won’t need to find the extra cash. Not only is a homemade, healthy dog food economical to produce, it has an enormous impact on the health of your dog, often beyond your wildest dreams.

How do you handle somone else trying to “train” your dog?

Question by a gal and her dog: How do you handle somone else trying to “train” your dog?
For example, I had a roommate who took my velcro dog out for a walk. Missy (the dog) was let off leash and didn’t come immediately back, so my roommate rolled her and pinned her, saying it’s something she’s seen done before and basically crediting that with Missy’s good behavior. I was upset, but what was done had been done, so I did nothing in this situation.

What do you do or what would you do if you found out that a housemate, friend, child, or spouse was using a training method you disagreed with?
This was a while ago, and I just shrugged it off. I’m mainly wondering if any of you have had similar experiences with someone swooping in and training. Thanks for your great answers so far!
