Brushing and Combing
Brushing loosens and removes dirt, dead hair, and old skin cells. It also distributes the skin's natural oils through the coat. Brush your pug weekly to keep his coat and skin in good condition. While you're brushing, check for signs of potential problems, such as itchiness, hair loss, redness, tenderness, or lumps. Keep an eye out as well for evidence of flea infestation. Start at the head and brush back toward the end of the body. Brush all the way down to the skin, not just over the surface of the coat. This helps loosen and remove dead hair and dandruff flakes. Don't skip the stomach area, even if your pug protests. Firmly insist that he allow you to groom every part of his body.
If your pug's coat tends to be dry, spray him before brushing with an antistatic coat conditioner to prevent a shock from static electricity.
To keep hair from flying everywhere, brush your pug outdoors in nice weather or in the garage or laundry room if you need protection from the elements. Place the dog on a sheet or towel that you can just throw in the washing machine after the grooming session. This will help keep hair from getting in your carpet, on your bed and other furniture, or lodged in corners.
When you're through brushing, use the wide-tooth side of your comb to remove any remaining loose hairs. Spray the coat with a leave-in conditioner to add shine. Your pug's coat will be gleaming.
These coats are kept shiny and beautiful thanks to daily grooming.
