    Browsing online for a pug puppy for sale? You can find pug dogs for sale on the Click Pets website – but in this article, we explore the benefits of owning this particular breed.

    There are many common misconceptions about pug dogs, so the information below should leave you better informed as to whether this is the right breed for your needs.

     

     

     

     

    Pug For Sale: An Overview of the Pug Breed



    1.    Pugs are often construed as lacking intelligence, but official research has actually categorised this breed as being of ‘fair working intelligence and obedience’ – far better than some other breeds. This small breed of dog isn’t suited to everyone, but if you live in an apartment, a pug for sale may be the logical choice as this is one of the ‘toy’ breed of dogs. Pugs are incredibly loyal and rarely stray from their owner's side.


    2.    It’s important to bear in mind that this breed can be noisy – not so much in terms of barking, but snoring – so if you don’t want a loud household companion, it’s perhaps best to focus your search elsewhere. Generally, the snoring shouldn’t cause too much trouble, and pugs aren’t very effective guard dogs, so excessive barking is unlikely to be an issue.


    3.    Pugs are suitable for families with children, as although these dogs are strong-willed, they tend to have low levels of aggression. Most pugs tend not to have a naturally playful nature, but this can often be dependent on the amount of socialisation a pug receives at a young age. Expert pug breeders may be able to offer you further advice on socialisation techniques.


    4.    It’s perfectly acceptable to indulge a pug’s childlike tendencies from time-to-time – however, it’s vital to avoid becoming suckered by a pug’s comical expression into overfeeding him with treats, as these dogs tend to suffer high obesity levels. Many pugs will opt to live a sedentary lifestyle if not exercised appropriately, so try and be strict from an early age in providing a long, daily walk as part of a pug’s routine.


    5.    Finally, if you’re still undecided as to whether a pug puppy for sale can become a loving, long term companion, these dogs can have one awkward problem that can become something of an issue for house-proud pet owners – they tend to be fairly gassy and may not always leave your property smelling of roses.
