Pug Dog Price – How Much Does A Pug Cost & Why So?

by PetCare

Pug needs no introduction. One of the quietest breeds of dog who often bark. Known for their clown punched face, which always gives a hilarious expression when seen. If you are going to be the first time dog owner then pug is the best choice. The suitable reason for saying them as first-time dogs are – they are loving, easy to go with children, easy to groom and above all are always ready to give that sparkly smile on your face.

Let’s talk about their unique appearances – short face, large eyes, wrinkled forehead, odd bark, cocked head and above all that innocent look which is irresistible. Though pug falls under the toy breed category but is considered as the largest of the toy breeds.


One can easily purchase a pug puppy for between 9,000 to 16,000Rs in India. It is always suggested to buy these dogs from a well certified and original breeder. Never purchase a dog from mills, animal shelters or puppy farms. You can save yourself from negative traits of a dog by choosing the right breeder and right puppy. In order to save your homecoming puppy from unwanted and hereditary diseases, always check health certificates of puppy parents and the puppy as well.

  1. EXERCISE :-

Like every other dog, a pug also needs a quality amount of exercise. This is because pugs are unlike other dogs and are prone to obesity.

Here listing some easy ways to make your dog exercise –

Walking – 

The first and foremost activity that every dog loves is walking. Pug is amongst those dogs who loves to go for long walks. Going for a long walk will help them to maintain their muscle tone. Also, it reduces the risk of heart diseases, burns extra calories as well.

The fetch game –

Encourage your dog to involve in the activity of fetching balls and getting it back to you.

Swimming – 

Not all but some of the pugs loves swimming. Though the shape of the body is not preferred for the same. But they just love to swim a lot. It is advised to clean them after swimming to make sure chemicals like chlorine are washed away.

  1. TRAINING :-

Though pugs are small but they are independent and stubborn too. This makes their training a little difficult. Well, anyhow dog training is a little difficult as it depends not only on the owner but also on the dog too. Whereas, pugs do not require rigorous training as they are happy to go lucky dog. The basic things to teach them are walking on a leash, potty training, following the basic commands.

The easy ways to train your pug –

  • Understand your pug – When he is in the mood to get the training in an easy way. Avoid giving training when he is upset or busy in another thing.
  • Set up a schedule – This will help him to understand and get molded in a well-defined routine.
  • Pay attention – Don’t leave the dog alone especially while potty training. Always stay next to them and give complete attention so they don’t get annoyed or uninterested.
  • Stop when required – Whenever you feel your pet is not interested or getting disinterested during the training session, you must stop the training at that time. A small pat on the back will do wonders.
  • Treats – They are always beneficial during training sessions. Treats motivate them a lot.

Note – Start training your pug when they are a puppy, it will be easy for them to easily grab the new activities.
