How To Care For A Bugg

1. Diet/ Nutrition

Since the Bugg is prone to obesity and other diseases, it is important to provide them with a healthy diet, including:

  • High-quality meats, e.g., beef, chicken, turkey, lamb, fish, pork
  • Eggs
  • Bones
  • Vegetables, e.g., celery, carrots, zucchini, bell peppers, green beans, etc.
  • Fruit, e.g., bananas, apples, oranges, pineapple, mango, cherries, kiwi, plums, etc.
  • Supplements, e.g., multivitamins, fish oil, glucosamine, manganese, chondroitin sulfate, etc.
  • Water

The amount of each depends on the dog’s age, weight, lifestyle, and potential health risks. As such, your choices should align with their needs. For example, overconsumption of vitamins can lead to health problems; hence it is necessary to regulate the dog’s diet.

2. Physical Exercise

Since they are not high-energy, this breed only needs about 30 minutes or one hour of exercise per day. A good walk is the best option, and you can always include some games such as Frisbee. As they are a small breed, avoid taking your pup to places where big dogs may be since they are at risk of injury and can get defensive. For this reason, you will need a leash to help keep your dog under control.

3. Hygiene and Grooming

The Bugg has a short coat. Hence it does not have intensive grooming needs. You will need to brush them almost daily, including their folds which may be hard to go around. Since they have a short coat, a simple brushing is enough with a pin or bristle brush.

4. Allergies

Your bugg should adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle to help reduce health issues. However, they may come across allergens like pollen, dust, chocolate, xylitol, household chemicals, and other items. 

This may result in skin irritation, ear itching, fur loss, ear infections, scooting along on their bottom, vomiting, and diarrhea among others. To ease their discomfort, you may give them antihistamines, medicated baths, supplements, changes in diet, and others depending on your vet’s recommendations.
