Puggle History The history of the Puggle originates back to the 1980s when U.S. breeders began experimenting in creating new dog crosses. After 20 years, in early 2005, the Puggle gained great popularity among families across the U.S. because of their wonderful personality and appearance. Much of the popularity of the Puggle can be linked back to both news and magazine articles. The Puggle is currently the most popular crossbreed ever, and a must have in many peoples' eyes.

PUGGLE CARE Main Menu It is advised to brush the coat weekly to remove excess, loose hair. A more frequent brushing can occur if you find excess hair on your clothes or furniture. Bathing can be kept to a minimum, usually once a month, to avoid dry, itchy skin. Have their teeth brushed to prevent the buildup of plaque over time. They enjoy a brisk, 15-30 minute, daily walk. Walking is a great way to release energy that your Puggle has stored up. Love to have an area that they can run and play. A fenced in yard or frequent visits to a dog park can be both good for a Puggles' mental and physical health. Regular vet checks and immunizations are necessary to keep you Puggle in good health.

PUGGLE TRAINING Main Menu Puggles are fairly easy to train as they are intelligent and treat motivated. Puggles can learn all basic commands including: sit, down, stay, settle, off, take it, leave it, fetch, roll over, give me paw, and come. More advanced skills can be taught and require additional training. Puggles can learn agility courses as they like to perform. Potty training can be challenging at times. The best way to train a Puggle is with reward and repetition as they sometimes can be stubborn.

LIFESTYLE Main Menu Puggles have a good amount of energy and love to play. They enjoy going on long, brisk walks and running around in small, fenced in areas. It can be beneficial to a Puggles' behavior to make sure they are getting enough exercise. Daily activity in the form of walk or play can prevent boredom and bad destructive behavior. Unlike Pugs, the Puggle has a longer snout and can handle more activity. Still take care in extreme weather, cold or hot, that it is not over done and they have plenty of water.
