This book has taught me alot about pugs, especially because I am going to be not only a first time pug owner but also a first time dog owner. I have learned how to be patient in the training process and can't wait to put the skills and training ideas to work!!

Having been owned by a Pug for the last 8 years... They are difinitely different in personality, physicality, and this is an excellent book for the potenial Pug owner. It is a good quick reference if you have a Pug. The medical reference is very helpful. Good luck

this is not good enough for the serious pug owner - it is too general regarding dogs but not nearly specific enough regarding pugs. the format is haphazard - one gets the impression that the author has 'read up' on pugs in order to write this book, but i doubt if she had owned or shown a pug. the index is all over the place; avoid this book and buy one by a professional pug expert.

Stick with the internet. This book gave me nothing really useful. I was so excited to sit there and read about my pug puppies..what to do and watch out for...etc. Total let down. This is extremely general info and when you are pug obsessed, like all pug parents, this does not fit the bill. Disappointed.

Es un buen libro, tiene muchas sugerencias y recomendaciones de para vivir plenamente con nuestro Pug, lo que si es importante es que hay que dedicarle tiempo a nuestro Pug para entrenarlo y educarlo, esto desde pequeño.

I've owned pugs for 8 years and this book has this breed all figured out! It's a great book for learning how to train your pug, as well as how to interact with him/her on a daily basis. These dogs are very sweet and have a tendency to be quite possessive at times so if you are to be his/her "favorite" person, be prepared to give your pug some well-deserved attention. This book explains it all.

This book is quite detailed but very thorough about how to get the most enjoyment from your new best friend!

Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
Pugs are a delightful ancient Chinese breed. This book is for all pug owners from the breeder to those who raise show dogs to the happy pet owner. A plethora of information about the breed as well as the specific care pugs require is included. Readers learn to clean the curly tailed dog's facial folds and to finger curl their tails when they are puppies.
