Pugs don't require extensive grooming, but their short coats do shed. Brush them with a medium-bristled brush or grooming mitt to remove dead hair—especially during shedding season. Pugs are a low odor breed and don't need baths unless they get into something stinky. Keep their nails short by regularly clipping them, and clean their ears to help prevent infections. Like all dogs, Pugs require regular dental care, including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleanings. Maintaining good dental hygiene is important for their overall long-term health. The sooner you get them into a good dental care routine, the better.
