In general, pugs are relatively unpretentious dogs. However, in order for the representatives of this breed to be happy, healthy and keep in good shape, in any case, careful implementation of the basic rules is required.
The breeder or nursery should give you comprehensive instructions on how, how much and when to feed the animal. It is very important to follow these rules, as any changes in diet lead to indigestion.
If you take a puppy, he will eat 4 times a day – this will provide him with a sufficient supply of energy and will not create difficulties with digestion. Ask the breeder to give you food for the first time and make sure that you understand everything about the feeding process before you bring the puppy home (you will need some time to read and sort everything out). Do not be afraid to ask questions if something seems incomprehensible. Today, breeders easily provide the new owners with everything they need.
As the dog grows older, the number of feeds will drop to three per day. The diet will remain the same, just you will not divide it into 4 servings, but into 3.
Another meal will be reduced when your pet is 6 months old. As a result, only breakfast and dinner will remain. The volume remains the same, but the number of servings will decrease to two. To compensate for the “lost” lunch, you can treat your pet tasty or reward for success during training.
Of course, all pugs are different. Some of them stay on their meals three times a day, but the majority of dogs eat twice a day (and only some – only once). In general, small breeds are still preferably fed 2 times a day.
Pugs usually like to eat and they are really waiting for them to feed them yet. It’s easy to bring down the mode, but don’t let your favorites control you. Take the bowl and take it away – return to the place before the next meal. Avoid reporting little by little, for testing – if the dogs are trying anything, this is your endurance.
