1.  The Characteristics of a Cockerpug Puppy and Dog  

The Cockerpug dog is a cross between the Pug and The Cocker Spaniel dog. It is considered a hybrid dog rather than a purebred dog or a mutt. The best way to find out the temperament of the Cockerpug is to look up the Cocker Spaniel and then the Pugs temperament and you can get any combo of any of the characteristics found in either breed of dog.

Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses and you could end up with any percentage of each breed of dog.

Grooming requirements for the Cockerpug depends on the type of coat of the individual dog. For the Cockerpugs with longer hair it will be necessary to brush more often. For Cockerpugs with short coats you should brush regularly to prevent excess shedding, but other than that they require little to no grooming.

Clean you Cockerpugs ears frequently so that you can prevent any ear infections they might get otherwise. If the dog has the physical characteristics of a Cocker Spaniel, then its fur and ears should be taken care of well. Also clean the wrinkles on the face to prevent any skin problems. Give them a bath only when necessary.

Cockerpugs usually weigh about 20 to 35 pounds and they can stand up to 15 1/2 inches tall at the shoulders. Cockerpugs have the build of a Pug but the fur of the Spaniel or the build of a Cocker Spaniel and the hair of a Pug. They have longer front legs and most are considered top heavy. Their life expectancy is about 12 to 15 years.

Cockerpugs should be treated in the same way as you would treat a Cocker Spaniel or a Pug. The Cockerpug needs daily exercise because they have the tendency to become over weight when they have a lack of exercise. This breed will do well in a large house or an apartment. They need plenty of attention. They are usually very active and only need average daily exercise to maintain a good health.

Some people think that hybrid dogs are healthier, because there is a mixing of the gene pool, and that could be true. Like many dogs they may chew on things when they become bored, it’s a good idea to give them things to chew on, like bones or dog toys, to keep them busy and so they don’t get bored.

Some health issues that the Cockerpug may have are: breathing, weight, and dental care, so these should all be monitored on a regular basis to make sure your dog stays healthy.  Just like a Pug can get overheated easily, a Cockerpug will not be that severe, but they can over heat too, being part Pug, so keep a look out during hot times.

The genetic makeup of Cockerpug determines what they will look like and their temperament. Although people find it best to find a Cockerpugs temperament by looking at both the Cocker Spaniel and Pug temperaments, The Cockerpug is even-tempered, kind and relaxed. They are very friendly and clever. They are very happy, easy going and playful dogs, they get along with other pets and children, so they would be considered a wonderful house pet.  If you love Cocker Spaniels and Pugs, you’re really going to love a Cockerpug then!

(On a personal note:  my son has a black Cockerpug, and he is the sweetest, most kind dog I know really.  He is great with other dogs, he has short hair, and he is just so much fun to hug and play with!  Even when he is full grown now, people think he is a puppy still, since he looks exactly like a black Labrador retriever, because he really looks like a miniature black lab, and he has the best personality, and I just love that dog so much!  He is just like a big baby that loves to play with me!)

2.  What You Should Know About Puppy Teeth

There is no doubt about it, puppies are going to chew on things!  Dogs will have 28 baby teeth, and 42 permanent teeth.  When a puppy is roughly 2 to 3 weeks old, their baby teeth start to come in.  All their baby teeth should be in place by roughly 8 weeks of age.

The puppy’s new teeth are very tiny and sharp, and will hurt your fingers when they get a hold of them.  Most mothers will start to wean their babies at 5 to 6 weeks old.

Your puppies baby teeth will start to come out around 8 to 12 weeks of age.  By roughly 8 months old, your dog’s permanent teeth should all be in.  You should make sure that all baby teeth are out, so that a tooth does not get left in, and another one comes in and crowds the space, and also gives your dog pain.  You would need to visit the vet if you see this happening.

Your puppy is going to want to chew on something, just like a real baby, their teeth are coming in, and they want to relieve some of the pain. It is good for them to chew, to help the teeth come thru.  You would want to get some appropriate chew items to help them.

You could start to train your dog to have their teeth brushed.  You can pick up doggie tooth supplies at your local pet store usually, and get down and dirty and brush your doggies’ teeth.  Rawhide chews are an excellent source of good tooth hygiene, as they are good for your dog’s teeth, and can help take off build up plaque, and dogs usually love it also!

A lot of puppies and dogs end up getting human food usually from the weakest link in the family.  If your dog is under the table, they usually will go to the person they think will mostly likely give them some food scraps.  If you do, just remember, chocolate and some nuts can kill your dog, never give chocolate.  Raisins can be just as deadly for your dog, do not give, they can shut down your dog’s kidneys, so be very careful of these products and your puppy or dog.
