Pug Temperament & Personality

Like their Toy group cousins, Pugs love nothing more than being around people at the centre of it all.

Pug Training & Exercise

Pugs are intelligent and sensitive. These little dogs also often have a stubborn streak and so may need a firm but fair hand when it comes to their training.


Pug Grooming

Despite their short coats, Pugs shed a lot of hair and need regular grooming.

Pug Nutrition

Pugs are known for their love of food, which can lead to obesity and affect their life span if not well managed.

Pug insurance considerations

Pugs sometimes suffer with epilepsy and are prone to hereditary and congenital conditions. Petplan dog insurance offers peace of mind that they will always be protected.
