Exercise

The Pugapoos won’t need massive activities on a daily basis. Instead, they will stay in motion throughout the entire day. Since this is an indoor breed, small play sessions with other dogs or with small children will keep it healthy. But do take them out for short walks or jogging sessions once or twice in a week.

Grooming entirely depends on the coat type. Brushing them once in a week will keep the fur clean and occasional trimming will keep their hair short. Frequent bathing and excess usage of water will harm their coat texture.
