howdie!! over the years people i have known with pugs have tried to stay active with them...like everyone else has said they do overheat quickly and it would be a good idea to have cool water ready..or something to keep them cool..one person also made sure to shave her pugs fur way down during the hotter months.. less coat.. less hair to keep them hot..im sure though as you get to know your dog you will know they do..

If it is warm out and getting too warm, I warn you that they overheat quickly! They can have a heat stroke fast. Keep them cool and if they are hot and pant, just not catching their breath, get them cooled down quickly. I always watch the temp and if it is just warm, I keep a fan that plugs into my car to blow air on them. If it is to hot, they do not go anywhere to play or just do errands. I play with them in the yard and you can tell when they get enough, they sit down. I watch for grass allergies since my mail can not stand the grass, and wash his face down for pollen. They need to exercise, just watch how you do it and under what conditions.

I know of several people who bring their pugs to the dog park. They run with the other dogs, just remember to be mindful of the temperature. The hotter it is the less time they can handle the heat. Some people bring a spray bottle of cool water to keep them cool.
