About this title



“Covers every topic from A to Z on pugs! A MUST-have for any pug enthusiast/fancier. I also recommend it to breeders as an outstanding reference when placing a puppy...especially to a first-time pug owner,” LAURA LIBNER, Pug breeder since 1999, MICHIGAN, USA

If you, like thousands of others, have fallen in love with the Pug, this is the only reference book you’ll ever need. The Complete Pug Handbook is the biggest & most in-depth book ever written about this unique little dog. It guides you step-by-step on the best way to care for, train & build a loving, lifelong bond with your Pug.

British canine author Linda Whitwam and leading Pug breeders answer the dozens of questions new & potential owners have, providing a blueprint for a successful partnership between you & your Pug.  It’s easy to read & packed full of practical info, photos & insider tips on everything about caring for these unique little dogs.
