The Shih Tzu breed makes a fantastic pet, but it can be difficult to groom this dog. This video provides some tips on Shih Tzu grooming for owners to make this process easier.
The Shih Tzus is a lovely, loving, and gentle pet. They love to be around people, particularly children, and she shows a lot of affection. The only thing you need to take care of apart from showering Shih Tzu with love and attention is grooming. This breed has long, flowing hair that needs careful grooming to keep it tangle-free. The good thing about this dog is it rarely shed and does not leave hair all over the house.
Grooming is a very essential part of pet care. The main perspective of grooming a Shih Tzu includes caring for its long coat, which consists of a top coat and an undercoat. This could be done by a trained groomer, which can be quite expensive, or you can also do it yourself.
Trimming the hair is an option. There are several hair grooming styles for a Shih Tzu. You can keep the coat short or long. For a long coat, you can clip the hair on top of the head in a topknot, and clip it around the eyes, ears, paws, and muzzle. For a short coat, you could cut the hair in layers using dog shears or scissors. This may be hard to do at home, so you can get it done at a dog salon that offers grooming for Shih Tzus. Some owners opt for the puppy cut, which includes shaving the dog all over. A size seven-blade is suggested for doing this.
