2 Shih Tzus Get New Haircuts and Baths You may have noticed that some of your Shih Tzus are sporting different haircuts. These short haircuts are often called 'puppy cuts,' and feature a short fur length from the tail to the nose. This cut is great for summer, but is fine for colder months as the coat of these dogs is double-thick, meaning even an inch of fur can keep them warm in chilly weather. These haircuts require a significant amount of grooming, and are often used on dogs that are going to dog shows. They can have long hair, but it can also get into the dog's mouth and make it look dirty. These haircuts are more expensive, so they should only be given to Shih Tzus that will be attending dog shows. In addition to baths, Shih Tzus also need their coats trimmed regularly. The silky coat of a Shih Tzu is one of the breed's most distinguishing features. It flows around the dog like a beautiful silky skirt. Regular brushing and bathing are necessary to prevent matting and tangles. Some owners even clip the dog's fur. This is the main reason these dogs are often called lion dogs. A good haircut will make your dog look and feel like royalty. If you're looking to give your Shih Tzu a stylish new look, consider having it trimmed.

How Your Shih Tzu Reacts to His New Haircut When a new haircut is in the works for your Shih Tzu, you might be wondering how your pet will react. Here are some tips to ensure he'll be comfortable and happy with his new haircut. First, start by preparing the hair clipper. After lining the hair clipper with cotton, comb out your Shih Tzu's coat to remove excess fur. Trim the hair in any areas where you see it sticking out. Work your way around the dog's body, focusing on a section at a time. Remember to refrain from trimming your dog's tail, head or ears unless it is completely necessary. Clipper burn will occur when clipping your dog's hair. To alleviate this, you can apply a soothing oint or cream. Depending on your preference, you may choose a different type of cut.

Do Shih-Tzu Puppies Love Kids? If you have a child, you may be wondering if Shih-tzu puppies love kids! There's actually quite a lot of truth to this question. In addition to their love of children, these dogs can be incredibly protective. Listed below are some things you need to keep in mind when taking care of your Shih-tzu puppy. Firstly, always remember that you should never slap or hit your Shih-tzu. While slapping and hitting your puppy aren't necessarily the best solutions, you should try redirecting your child's attention to the toys they are giving you. Another thing to remember is that different dogs have different personalities. Although Shih Tzus are known for their great relationships with children, they should still be properly socialized with children, especially small children. Young children often become overwhelmed by a puppy's energy, and a Shih Tzu puppy is often the only one who can keep up with the high-energy puppy. For this reason, it's important to start early with socialization. One of the best things about these dogs is their small size. They love to play with toys and enjoy greeting visitors. However, their size can make them more vulnerable than their larger cousins. Shih Tzus should always be handled with care and attention, and they shouldn't be pushed too hard. However, they are very playful and can put up with minor jockeying from young kids. This can be a big plus for children.

You should immediately stop walking your Boston and place your feet down. If you continue walking, your dog will keep pulling and this behavior will only get worse.

It's through sniffing that they can learn about each other and make friends. If things are going well, they can even cross paths. This can be a good sign when it comes to socializing your dogs.

However, both breeds can be destructive when bored. While they are naturally friendly, they can also chew on sofas, shoes, and other items around the home. A Chihuahua may even chew on your favorite lazy boy in a matter of minutes. However, the Pitbull is one of the most affectionate and protective breeds around the home and will be an excellent watchdog with proper training.

First Care of Small Chihuahua Puppy Your puppy's health is an important priority, and this article will cover the basic care your puppy needs to ensure a healthy life. From identifying a healthy chihuahua puppy to keeping him warm outdoors, this article will help you care for your new furry friend. This article also covers the basics of training your puppy, identifying common health problems and more. It will help you to keep your chihuahua puppy in good health and give it the attention it deserves. Identifying a healthy chihuahua puppy While small Chihuahua puppies have lots of energy, they can also be at risk for health problems. Their bones are fragile and they don't have enough room to grow strong teeth. In addition, they have trouble regulating their blood sugar levels, and can easily go into hypoglycemia. So, it's important to know how to identify a healthy small Chihuahua puppy. First, make sure you're buying a healthy puppy from a reputable breeder. If you're unfamiliar with breeders, use the AKC's search tool to find reputable breeders. In addition, you should ask the breeder about health issues present in the puppy's bloodline. If a puppy's parents have had any health problems, that means the puppy has one, too. Training a chihuahua puppy If you're considering adopting a small Chihuahua puppy, here are some tips for training a small dog. First of all, keep a crate for your pup. Although it doesn't have to be huge, a larger crate will provide more surface area for your puppy to use the toilet. Chihuahuas are not crate-trained by nature, and this can be difficult for some breeds. Besides, it's important to keep in mind that most dogs don't like to go to the bathroom where they sleep. When training a small chihuahau puppy, start early and be consistent. Remember that you don't have to crate train your dog right away, but you need to be consistent and teach your dog how to behave properly. Keeping it in a crate for too long can lead to accidents. Keeping your dog in its crate for too long is also frustrating. Keeping a chihuahua warm outdoors A chihuahua is an ancient breed. It's thought to have originated in Mexico, where it lived alongside the Aztecs. The breed was first recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1904. Chihuahuas can vary significantly in size and color. To ensure your new pet stays healthy and happy, here are some care tips. Make sure your new puppy stays warm outdoors. Chihuahuas don't enjoy cold weather, so keep your new puppy dressed in warm clothing. Winter can be especially tough for chihuahuas, so keep your pup warm when outside. Grooming your chihuahua puppy is similar to grooming any other breed. It's important to remember that you should brush and clean your puppy's coat regularly to prevent any tangles or matting. Checking the underside of a chihuahua's paws When you look at a puppy's paws, you may notice some unusual symptoms. While these may be symptoms of a serious ailment, others may be a temporary problem. Regardless, it is always best to visit a veterinarian if you suspect your dog has an ailment. Many common conditions will cause a combination of symptoms that signal that your pet needs veterinary care. Chihuahuas require at least 20 minutes of exercise each day. While this may seem like a lot, small dogs can easily go for longer than you expect. Make sure you supervise their exercise time so they don't become bored and destructive. In addition, check the paw pads for foreign objects. While they may seem cute, Chihuahuas have poor dental health. Brushing the teeth and gums daily will keep your puppy's mouth free of bacteria and tartar. Keeping a chihuahua warm indoors As the temperatures drop indoors, you'll need to provide extra warmth for your Chihuahua puppy. During the winter, you may want to put a fleece blanket on the floor or use a heating pad. These devices provide warmth without causing your pet any danger of electrocution. You can also place fleece blankets on furniture so that your dog can rest under the blanket during the day. While it is important to keep your chihuahua puppy comfortable during the winter, you should also remember that this breed does not tolerate extremely cold temperatures. Chihuahuas have trouble regulating their body temperature, so you'll need to make sure your puppy is kept in an environment that is consistent with the temperature outside. Chihuahuas are often not as active in cold weather as other dogs, so they will need to be kept indoors unless the weather is particularly cold.
