BUGG DOG

History

The Bugg dog is a hybrid dog crossed between the Boston terrier and the Pug and originated in the year 1980s.

Temperament and Personality

Due to the similarity in the characteristics of the Pug and the Boston terrier, it is not difficult to determine the mood of the Bugg.  They are incredibly loving and devotional towards their masters and love to spend time and cuddle on their lap. They are comical and playful with children but can be aggressive if it comes to their comfort space.

Exercise

The dog is energetic, so they need regular exercise to maintain their fitness. Take them for bristle walk and swimming and allow them to play without restraint but within the addressed boundaries.

Grooming

Bug puppies have a short coat, and require brushing weekly and also clean their facial skin folds to prevent them from allergies. Check its ears and eyes to avoid infection and bathe them when necessary with a dog shampoo.

Health Problems

The breed has no specific health problems of its own but can inherit brachycephalia, breathing problems from its parents. It can also have vision issues if the eyes are not checked on regular basis.

Training

Having an intelligent nature, the dog is easy to train, but with adequate care. Praise them with treats if they learn something new, for instance, if they address the trainer after their call, then reward them. As they sometimes become aggressive, if it comes to their comfort space, teach them to be calm in their pup stage only. Allow them to socialize with other pets and guests too.

Feeding

Although they are small dogs, they love to mumble all the time but overeating can cause bloating. Provide them with 0.75 to 1.5 cups of good quality dry food split into two or three meals every day.
