Pugs are unpretentious in food and are not averse to eating anything from the master’s table. Ah, how hard it is to bear this begging look of a cat from the famous Shrek cartoon!
But let’s put our hand on the heart, and which of us does not like to eat tasty food ?! But we can, by force of our will, restrain ourselves from excessive gluttony, a pug of persuasion like: “if you get fat, you become fat and ugly” are alien. He already considers himself the most beautiful. Aren’t you ?!
But “piecemeal” (this is what we call small handouts from the table), as a rule, does not bring anything good. A couple of pieces of “not a dog’s diet” can lead to digestive upset, and prolonged uncontrolled feeding can completely lead to metabolic disorders and obesity.
Remember: a dog is not a pig. And feeding her leftovers from the master’s table is unacceptable.
A clear answer to the question of which is better: ready-made dry food or natural food does not exist.
If you choose dry food, choose only high-quality expensive food (super premium – class), according to the age and condition of your dog. The most common Royal Canin, Purina Pro Plan, Acana, Edvans, etc.
Do not believe advertisements about economy-class fine feeds. Cheap is never good. Do not save on the health of your pet. Believe me, trips to the veterinary clinic will cost you much more.
Many people prefer to feed the dogs with their own cooked natural food. If you chose this option – balance the diet according to general recommendations + vitamins.
Therefore, before you get a dog, think about whether you can (I mean financially) provide her with a wholesome, healthy diet.
It should be noted that dogs of this breed are prone to overeating and gaining excess weight. So keep an eye on the condition of your pet.
Pugs do not tolerate loneliness and lack of communication. If you are at work all day and you have very little free time, definitely, a pug is not your breed. There are many other dog breeds that do not need so much close contact with the owner. Pug is probably the only breed very human-centered.
A little pug dog is your shadow, your tail. Where are you – there he is. For him, the master is the center of the universe. After him, he is ready for fire and water. Therefore, think 100 times before you get this sensitive and affectionate creature.
