QUESTION: How much exercise can a pug handle? I want to get a pug and I live in Houston. It gets hot and humid in the summer. I just wanted to know how much walking can they do. The walks would usually be in the evening when it cools down. Can they handle a mile walk?
ANSWER: Pugs are very hardy little dogs and as long as they are eating a proper diet and not overweight they can walk farther than a mile no problem. Remember this is a dog not a human and even little dogs are very hardy. If it is hot just remember to bring some water and make sure that he has had a good drink before you go out. I personally love Pugs and grew up with a friend with two pugs named Spunky and Brutus and they were an absolute riot !!!!
