Pug Eating Habits

First, let's get the important stuff out of the way. Food is very important to pugs, and they'll let you know if they think you're taking too long to feed them. If you've forgotten a meal or are a little late serving it, your pug may give you a hint by staring meaningfully at you. If his dish is in the vicinity, he'll stare at you, then at the dish, and back again until you take the hint. When that doesn't work, a pug may take matters into his own paws, giving you a nudge with his nose or a push with his paws. More verbal pugs will “bap” — a loud, persistent, sharp, obnoxious sound — until their mealtime needs are met.

Every pug is an individual. Don't be afraid to experiment until you find a food and amount that suits your particular pug. How can you tell if your pug is eating right? Simply take a look. He'll have bright eyes, good muscle tone, nice breath, a shiny coat, and healthy skin.
