Anyone new to taking care of Shih Tzus might look at the pictures of Shih Tzu Show dogs and fall in love
with that luxuriously long and shiny coat, neatly presented with a lovely top knot skillfully beautifying
the head and wrapped in an elegant bow. However, are you aware that Shih Tzu’s hair is a lot closer to
human hair than any other dog breed? This is the reason why Shih Tzu hair accessories and haircuts are
becoming increasingly popular. Furthermore, Shih Tzu grooming is also a must to keep your pet at its best condition.
Generally, grooming these beautiful dogs may sound easy, you do wash and dry your hair every day,
right? After snipping a few inches of your Shih Tzu’s fur and shampooing it, do not forget to blow-dry
your furbaby’s hair to prevent clumping as well as matting. Put your hairdryer on low heat and begin
from the back of the dog and move gradually toward the front. Remember to brush the area you are
drying, as this will also prevent matting, which is unhealthy for Shih Tzus.
Suddenly, it becomes a bit overwhelming. I know how tough it can be to sometimes admit that someone
else can do a better job than you could when it comes to some things, especially when we have to shell
out money to pay them for it.
Nevertheless, when it comes to your Shih Tzu grooming and haircut, it might be a great idea to let the
professionals do it. Professional groomers will take care of your dog and make sure that she feels no
discomfort during the entire procedure.
