Gifts For Pug Dog Lovers

Pugs are quite cute with their smooshed up little faces, wrinkly skin, and big eyes. What’s more is that they are just as friendly and affectionate as they are cute. However, this adorableness comes at a price with all their health issues. Therefore, life for a pug owner may be a bit more complicated than for other dog owners. If you want to help out, here are a few gift ideas that will come in very handy for a pug dog lover and owner.

The best gift for a pug lover is the Asakuki Essential Oil Diffuser. This offers aromatherapy to help with the pug’s breathing problems. Other awesome gifts to consider are the PetPlate Dog Food Subscription, and the Midwest Homes for Pets Dog Crate.

What Do Pugs Love The Most? Pugs really enjoy playing indoors with their human companions. They are not really picky about the activity and just want to feel engaged. However, they are not very tolerant of extreme exercises and easily overheat and get exhausted. Therefore, playtime should be in short but frequent sessions.

What Do I Need For A Pug? Above all else, you need a comfortable home for a pug. This includes providing them with food, a safe and comfortable place to sleep, and a lot of love. Remember that these are fragile little doggies that need as much help as possible making it through life and the world.

What Is Poisonous To Pugs? Pugs are intolerant to most things that other dog breeds are including avocados, garlic, onions, alcohol, and chocolate just to name a few. Some of these cause immediate reactions with signs like vomiting and diarrhea while others have more long term and silent effects on systems like the liver and the kidney.
