Random Puggle Fact

Puggles are extremely intelligent. When playing games where the object is to trick your puggle, you're going to have to be ON POINT if you hope to continue tricking him or her.

Puggles learn your moves so fast that you need to come up with new ones constantly. If you pretend to throw something in one direction so you can start running away from your puggle in the other direction, enjoy it; that trick will work about twice more, and then your puggle won't so much as LOOK in the other direction when you pretend to throw something.

Puggles have your number, and you need to be really clever to outsmart these dogs... but it's fun trying!

Dangers of Kennels for Your Puggle

As I've mentioned in the past, my puggle lost her hearing due to an ear infection and the antibiotic that was used to treat that infection.

This type of hearing loss in dogs takes place over a period of days, and if the symptoms of hearing loss are caught in time and you stop giving your puggle the ear medication, he or she can repair the hearing loss over time.

However, when your puggle is in a kennel, the people keeping an eye on the dogs can't pay the same amount of attention to your puggle that you would, and they don't know your dog well enough to notice something like hearing loss.

So if your puggle is on a new kind of medication, or has any other conditions which may require lots of undivided attention, then you MUST avoid kennels at all costs.

They simply don't have the manpower to care for your puggle the way your puggle wants to be cared for!

Some alternatives include:

  • leaving your puggle with friends or family
  • asking your vet if you can delay administering a new medication until after the holidays
  • finding a family that will take a puggle for a short period of time in lieu of a kennel, and making them aware of your puggle's medical needs

There's always an alternative to putting your dog in a kennel, if you're willing to do the research.

Your puggle will thank you for it!
