In this video, we get to listen to the beautiful sounds of snoring Pugs. To some, this is an endearing sound, to others, amusing. Perhaps if you are trying to sleep and can’t because of the volume, a Pug’s snore is anything but humorous. I know someone who needs to go to bed before her dog does because he snores so loudly that she can’t fall asleep.
Why do Pugs snore so loudly?
There is an explanation for this loud snoring in Pugs and other dogs with a short snout. They have an elongated palate, and this affect their respiratory system. It’s just the way they’re built. There are things you can do to help your Pug with this. And if you are thinking about getting a Pug, know that there are extra steps to care for your friend because of the way he is built.
According to Michele Welton in Your Pure Bred Puppy, to help your Pug’s breathing, avoid smoking around him. Use cleaning products that do not contain chemicals. If you had just cut your lawn, keep him away from the fresh cut grass. And if pollens are in the air, keep him indoor. If you live in a hot and humid climate, keep him indoor, in air-conditioning. Short-faced dogs get heatstroke more easily because they can’t pant enough to lower their body heat. Use a harness that’s Y-shaped instead of a collar around his throat, because the collar would put pressure on his windpipe. Sometimes when a Pug gets excited, reverse sneezing can occur. Don’t be afraid when you hear this. You can help by covering his nose so he has to breathe through his mouth, and massage his throat so he feels relief and more calm as he returns to his normal breathing.
