Hug Breed Maintenance
The Hug may have a medium to long coat. He should be brushed or combed out weekly to remove dead hair and to keep his fur shiny. If your Hug has thick, long hair it may need to be brushed out several times a week to prevent matting. Nails should be trimmed monthly as overgrown nails can cause a dog pain and can get infected. Daily walks or jogs may help wear down his nails naturally. Floppy, drop ears will need to be cleaned weekly with an ear wash. Your veterinarian can help recommend the product that is best for your dog and can instruct you on the safest ear cleaning method. The Hug should only be bathed when they are dirty or every few months. If your Hug has folds on his face they should be wiped daily, taking care to dry them thoroughly. The Hug’s teeth should be brushed weekly to prevent tartar buildup and bad breath. The affectionate Hug is a family dog and craves a lot of attention. To prevent boredom when you are not home, he should be provided chew toys.
