Chug Breed Maintenance
Generally, the Chug is a moderate maintenance dog; if his coat is short, weekly brushing with the slicker brush will keep the fur looking shiny and neat. If his coat is longer, then a weekly brushing with the pin brush should work just fine. If he is shedding, you can brush more often so that tangles do not occur. Because your Chug is a small hybrid, he may need to have his teeth cleaned several times as 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. His nails will need trimming every other week or whenever they appear too long, which will depend on the growth rate and his activity level.
