How to Stop Pug Shedding?
This is a common question that every pug mom do, But the reality is that you cannot stop a healthy pug from shedding. Pug Shedding is a natural loss of hair that allows the new coat to come in, and there’s no way to eliminate it.
Pugs sheds only two times a year: The first half and the second half 🙂
Pugs are shedding machines. They shed excessively. You could make a sweater every day!!
Fawn pugs and some black pugs have a double coat. The pug’s undercoat is constantly growing and pushing the hairs on the upper coat out, hence the constant shedding. Black pugs shed less
The Most Important Thing You Can Do is reduce the amount of hair in your home.
Check out these tips:
Healthy Nutrition is essential to maintain healthy skin and a shiny coat.
Hight quality dog food contains the necessary nutrients to care and protect your pug’s body functions.
Supplements like Coconut Oil & Omega Fatty Acids can improve skin and coat condition naturally.
Feed your pug with bad food or junk food for a longer time may also result in skin problems.
Regular brushing removes excess hair from your pug’s coat and cuts down significantly on the amount of hair you have to deal with on your furniture, car, and your clothes. You should brush your pug every day.
There are ESSENTIAL and EFFECTIVE products called DeShedding Tools.
These can help you to reduce A LOT the amount of loose hair from shedding.
Get a “Furminator” or shedding blade. Both works MUCH better than a brush.
You should use these Tools 1-2 times a week for 10-20 minutes each session
Bathing your pug can help get rid of dead coat. Bathe your pug frequently, at least once a month.
Pug will often shed more during and after a bath. The reason is because the cleansing agents in the shampoo break up natural body oil that was holding some of the dead hairs in the tightly packed coat. Brush your pug before and after a bath to remove the rest of those loose pug hairs
Their coat is there to protect them from the heat/cold and from sun damage to their skin. Shaving them will prevent them from naturally cooling themselves in summer.
When you shave your pug, you increase the risk of sunburn, skin irritations, skin cancer, and more bug bites.
Pug shedding is a pug thing and part of their charm!! 🙂
