We also think it’s important to know what you’re getting into with every breed we carry, so check out these Shih Tzu traits, to see if it might be the breed for you:
- This breed is small and compact, but will be willing to stand up to any competitor which is why it is called the “lion dog”.
- This breed is very loyal with a strong personality. An extrovert by nature, the Shih Tzu likes to be smothered with love and attention. This is a good dog breed for first time dog owners.
- Grooming could be costly, but rewarding as it does not have any dander is good for people with allergies or asthma. Its coat is flowing and very luxurious so it needs constant brushing to keep it in good shape. The shedding is also minimal.
- Shih Tzus can be quite a handful when training, but with a consistent training regimen it will retain commands very well. Training a Shih Tzu needs patience and perseverance, and often some yummy treats! Sometimes the best training is found through the stomach!
- This breed may be small, but it will watch over its family and owner very well. It will bark or attract the attention of its owner when there is an intruder.
- If you are not the active type, then this is the ideal dog for you. It does not need that much exercise, but you still need to take it out for walks on a regular basis. The Shih Tzu does very well in small apartments or condos.
- Shih Tzus are good with both children and older people, but we recommend that you expose your puppy to people, other animals and environments so it gets used to different situations.
