Is it ok to shave a pug's hair with dog clippers?

I have been shaving my dogs hair for about 4 months but now that winter is here I decided to stop. Now some of his hair seems to not wanna grow back.

You shouldn't shave a pug. By doing in, you may have damaged to coat so bad that it will no longer grow back.

Do not shave your pug!



Why are you doing this? Is it because of shedding? Pugs have very short hair and need it for protection from the sun and winter cold. They should not be shaved. You can rub it down outside to get the loose hairs out, vacuum more often.



But let his hair grow back in. Hopefully it will become like new but it may take 6 months to a year.

Why do you shave your pug? Their hair protects them from both heat and cold. If it is to prevent shedding I find a good rub down with a rubber glove every day does the trick. Pugs can be prone to skin and coat problems but other more serious things can cause hair to not grow back.

Why are you shaving a pug's hair? Pug's are a breed that do not get shaved unless they have some sort of fungus that needs topical treatment and the Vet says it needs shaving.



So I would strongly advise if you just do this because you think it looks cute or something, to stop. Also, if you are not an experienced groomer or real familiar with dog clippers, you can burn your dogs skin. Maybe that is why the hair is not growing back everywhere?

They don't have much hair to start with. Why would yoiu want a bald pug? That is cruel. I certainly hope you are not serious.

It may never grow back in right. I'd shave him if it was medically necessary, but that's it. I have never had a pug, but have had other dogs that needed to be shaved for surgeries, and on some the hair grew back--on others, they always had thinner sparse hair. One even grew back with a cowlick thing.



Here's hoping your dogs fur looks good soon! Stop shaving the poor thing.

Shaving your pug? Pugs have a very thin layer of hair to start with. Why would you want him to be bald? The only time you should shave a pug is when it is directed by a vet for medical reasons.

ugh!



DO NOT SHAVE DOUBLE-COATED BREEDS!!!! it destroys the coat (as you have now found out). it will never go back to the way it was before. it may improve, but you can not undo all the damage. the only dogs that should ever be shaved are single coated breeds like shih tzus, yorkies, poodles, etc.



there is really no point to shaving a double-coated dog. it doesn't make them shed less (the hair is just smaller) and the coat grows back in even thicker than before. the hair, even in really fluffy dogs like huskies and samoyeds, acts as insulation from both the heat and the cold.
