Pug shedding management

Whether you are a seasoned Pug owner or planning to get a Pug, it is important to realize that although Pugs shed a lot, there are effective solutions to help manage the challenges that abundant shedding may present to people who own this breed. How much do Pugs shed? Pug dogs feature a thick, short coat that produces a surprising amount of shedding throughout the year with even more noticeable shedding during the fall and spring seasons. If you have a Pug at home, you may have noticed that during spring time Pug's coat starts to shed more profusely in order to prepare the dog for a warmer season, thus shedding the thicker coat that was needed during the winter to keep the dog warm. Some Pug owners may wonder "How do I keep my Pug from shedding?" Shedding can not be completely eliminated in Pug dogs and while there are dog breeds that produce less shedding, Pug owners should not be misled into thinking that they can stop their Pug from shedding. Pug owners know that every piece of furniture where the Pug spends some time will be covered with the dog's shedded hair. Not only will you find Pug's hair on the couch, but the floor may also get covered with the dog's shedded hair. While shedding is perfectly normal for Pugs, owners may find it important to keep the shedding under control.

What are some of the most effective ways to help control Pug shedding? Besides feeing your Pug a healthy diet that maintains overall health of your pet, be sure to get the best brush for your Pug that will effectively help to remove the bulk of loose hair from the dog's coat. Getting a good brush and not using it regularly will not help much with keeping the shedding under control. Take your Pug outdoors and thoroughly brush the dog in the fresh air with a FURminator deshedding brush that can be a life saver for many Pug owners. As you are brushing your Pug, you will notice that large amounts of the dog's dead hair are being removed and that is not a reason to worry - FURminator dog brush helps to get rid of most of the dead hair from the dog's coat. Always brush your Pug in a gentle manner in the direction of hair growth to make sure the dog is comfortable during the process and to prevent skin injuries. Most Pugs enjoy being groomed and will be patiently sitting while the owner is brushing them. If your Pug is not sitting still while you are brushing him, have some healthy treats available that will help to keep the dog still. Reward your Pug with a little bit of the treat only when he is behaving as intended. If the dog is trying to run away, don't provide the treat at that moment, because your Pug will naturally assume that he is being rewarded for trying to run away. That's not what we want. Getting your Pug used to being brushed should start from puppyhood, but even a full grown Pug can learn to enjoy the brushing sessions. Talk to the dog in a soothing voice to help your Pug relax. With regular use of FURminator the amount of hair around your home will start decreasing because this deshedding tool captures most of the loose hair during brushing.
