The Complete Pug Handbook is an absolute must for anyone getting a Pug puppy, adult or rescue dog. New Pug owners have so many questions. Imagine if you could call on a couple of dozen Pug experts to provide the answers… Well now you can! Canine author Linda Whitwam has teamed up with experienced Pug breeders and professionals on both sides of the Atlantic to produce the most insightful and informative book on Pugs yet. The 272 pages are packed full of information and insider tips on everything you'll ever need to know about caring for and living with one (or more if you get the Pug bug) of these unique and highly affectionate dogs. Find out what Pug breeders have to say on a host of subjects, including what NOT to do when you bring your pup home, typical Pug traits, what Pugs love…and hate (like going out in the rain!) and advice on how to care for an ageing dog. The Complete Pug Handbook covers looking after a Pug from the litter to old age. For anyone who hasn’t chosen their Pug yet, there’s: How to Find a Good Breeder, The Questions to Ask, Where NOT to Buy a Pug From, Picking a Healthy Puppy or Adult Dog, The Temperament of The Pug, How to Pick a Puppy With the Right Temperament For You, Pug Proofing Your Home and Rescue Pugs. Once you bring your Pug home, the book guides you through the first days and weeks, covering Housetraining, Crate Training, Obedience Training, Understanding Your Dog’s Personality and Socialising your Dog. There are over 20 pages on Feeding a Pug with all the options explained, including Feeding Puppies, Feeding Charts, Calorie Counters, How to Read Dog Food Labels and Feeding Senior Dogs. There’s even a chapter on Showing Pugs written by a leading breeder and Championship Show judge. More than 60 pages are devoted to Pug Health, Skin and Allergies with tried and tested medical and holistic treatments. This book could save you a fortune in vets’ bills - not only by helping you to choose a healthy dog, but you’ll also learn about Keeping your Pug Healthy, the Puggy Facts of Life, Spaying, Neutering, Vaccinations, Worming, De-Fleaing and Grooming. The Pug is a brachycephalic (flat-faced) breed which requires a little extra care from its humans. This book will arm you with all the specialist knowledge you’ll ever need for the challenge of owning one of these highly rewarding and very lovable dogs. Reviews for The Complete Pug Handbook: “An EXCELLENT BOOK, well written and informative, an insightful look into the world of Pugs. Just about everything you would ever need to know about living with this delightful breed, an absolute must-have for new and would-be Pug parents, a guaranteed point of reference you will return to time after time, easy to understand and full of good information, very breed specific, unlike lots of other books which seem generic, this has been written by someone who knows the breed. If you are thinking of getting a Pug you need this book, 10/10,” D. BEECHAM, of FIZZLEWICK PUGS, SOUTH WALES, UK “This is a very well-rounded book with input from breeders from the UK and throughout the US. It covers every topic from A to Z on pugs! A MUST-have for any pug enthusiast/fancier," L. LIBNER, MICHIGAN, USA “Absolutely brilliant book! Highly recommended reading for all new Pug owners, this book has breed specific information on every topic, unlike a lot of handbooks which have generalised dog information with only a small section on the actual breed,” S. EVANS, CARMARTHENSHIRE, WALES “Very thorough! Rather than just one opinion, it includes the thoughts and recommendations from multiple breeders on many subjects. It is a must-have for all Pug owners, new and old,” L. WRIGHT, MICHIGAN, USA “An extremely comprehensive and detailed guide to pug ownership.
