Chug Breed Maintenance
Generally, the Chug is a moderate maintenance dog; if the coat is short, weekly brushing with the slicker brush will keep the fur looking shiny and neat. If the coat is longer, then a weekly brushing with the pin brush should work just fine. If your pup is shedding, you can brush more often so that tangles do not occur. Because your Chug is a small hybrid, they may need to have their teeth cleaned several times a week as a preventative against dental decay and tooth loss. Your hybrid may have folds and wrinkles that will need attention; check the folds daily to make sure that moisture is not accumulating. Keep the folds dry by gently patting them with a soft towel as needed. The nails will need trimming every other week or whenever they appear too long, which will depend on the growth rate and their activity level.
