Shih Tzu ...


Descended from the Lhasa Apsos of Tibet, which in turn were crossed with the Pekingese, the resultant Shih Tzus were often presented as tributes to the Emperor of China and lived a life of luxury in the Imperial palaces.

Remarkable for his courage, animation, charming personality and distinctly arrogant bearing, the Shih Tzu is extremely entertaining to own.

The basics of the successful grooming of a Shih Tzu are, very simply, regularity and thoroughness. If you wish to keep your Shih Tzu’s coat clipped short it is still important that your puppy becomes used to being groomed as early as possible. Although the coat will not require to be clipped for the first few months it is important to get your puppy used to being brushed regularly. Spending around 15 minutes daily just gently brushing with a bristle brush will help the puppy to become used to this.
