I've been looking for a book like this for years. It's exactly what I was hoping for. Perfect!

Being VERY fed up with Pug books that were terribly generic, this book has aced it. I've found the health chapters extremely helpful and the training (social and home alone) to be above par. We've made incredible progress, couldn't be happier!

I treat my Lula like my own child, so trying to resolve the many issues we were having and working to keep her healthy was beyond overwhelming. This book is exactly what I needed. It's been in two places since it arrived, my hands or the coffee table!

Pug: Lula
This gets a huge recommend! What did I do before this book? Worried, basically. And struggled, both of us. Wonderful and EFFECTIVE training advice! It's working, on all levels. Kudos!

Pug: Topsy
My book was and continues to be a treat. Where to begin? Well, the beginning! An interesting overview, and then a dive into nicely sectioned Pug info, that is similar to taking a drive from point a to point b. It covers things just about in the order that served me well. And ends with longevity tips, first aid and often over looked care. And, the title is DEAD ON. The book is really big, in essence, like a thick college text book.

A two part review. To the petpugdog website, thank you for taking the time to offer this incredible book. To Pug owners, you won't be sorry. I've counted for you here, 25 sections with 127 sub-sections and I'll tell you every single one of them I not only wanted to read, I've gone back and read again. There's no fluff. It's all stuff I'm super happy to know!

The PetPugDog website, but on steroids. By far the most helpful and interesting Pug book we've every come across.

An excellent resource. Was humbling to read how much I needed to know about, even having had Pugs in my life since my teens. I appreciated the detailed info and then the checklists and graphs. This book is staying out and I'm sure will be well read throughout the years.
