Breeding Pugs

Look at this pictures.... Aren't they cute. I know you want to have one...but why not get two or even more. In fact, why don't you breed pugs and sell their puppies (offspring) for profit.
Breeding pugs are profitable and rewarding at the same time. I know that for a fact since I also breed pugs. So how do you start? Begin first with buying and taking care of one pug.

The responsibility of having a pug is extensive. Like any other dog, pug has to be feed with proper diet (not left-over food), grooming, exercise, and most especial of all love and attention. Pugs also have health problems. They are susceptible to eye injuries such as puncture wounds and scratched corneas and painful Entropion.
Pugs also have compact breathing passageways, leaving many pugs unable to breathe properly or efficiently or their ability to regulate their temperature through evaporation from the tongue. A pug's normal body temperature is between 38 °C to 39 °C. If the temperature rises to 41 °C they are no longer able to cope with cooling themselves and their oxygen demand is greatly increased, and requires cooling down immediately. Should the temperature reach 42 °C, the internal organs begin to break down at a cellular level which can lead to severe long term health issues or even death.

But don't you worry, with enough research and fact-finding you will be able to withstand the health problems of taking care of a pug. And mind you, there is also veterinary services that can help you to prolong the life of your pug.

Once you get the feel of taking care of a pug, you can now start in making your own pug breeding kennel. You can now add more pugs. The ideal number of pug for breeding purpose is one male (stud) and 5 females (dam). Your male/stud can mate your 5 females/dams and produce puppies. Generally a pug have an average of 2 to 4 puppies. But there are cases where they can have a litter size of 6 to 7 puppies.
In a year, a pug can give birth once or twice. So there is a possibility that your pug can produce 4-8 puppies in a year. If you have 5 females/dams, you will have 20-40 puppies. That's a lot of pups!

A male pup cost about Php 10-12 thousand but a female pup cost more around Php 17-20 thousand. Let's just say that you have a 50/50 ratio of male and female pups.... if you have 40 puppies you will have 20 male pups (Php 240,000) and 20 female pups (Php 400,000). That's a total of Php 640,000 thousand a year or an average of Php 53,333 thousand a month. How's that for a business?

But you have to deduct your operating expense like dog food, vaccinations, veterinary check-ups, housing maintenance, and other miscellaneous expense. Still, you can have a net income of Php 30+ thousand.
If you want to generate more revenues you can add more female pugs for breeding and/or you can make your male/stud available for stud purposes where you can charge for Php 1-3 thousand per one stud service.

Money from your pug breeding business is only your secondary satisfaction.... the real pleasure is you get to enjoy the company of this special breed for the rest of their dog's life span.
