Is the Shih Tzu the Right Breed for you?

  • High Maintenance: Grooming should be performed often to keep the dog's coat in good shape. Professional groomers can be sought after for assistance.
  • Minimal Shedding: This dog will shed a negligible amount. Recommended for owners who do not want to deal with dog hair in their cars and homes.
  • Difficult Training: Training will be difficult, which might not be suitable for a first time dog owner. Patience and perseverance are required to adequately train it. Professional obedience schools can also be helpful.
  • Great Watchdog Ability: This dog will bark and alert its owners when an intruder is present. If a situation escalates, the dog should not be depended on to defend and protect its owner and family.
  • Medium Adaptability: It is well-suited for apartment living. This breed cannot tolerate both hot and cold weather. Be careful taking it outside when temperatures are above or below normal.
  • Slightly Active: Not much exercise is required to keep this dog in shape. Owners who are frequently away or busy might find this breed suitable for their lifestyle.
  • Good for New Owners: This breed is well suited for those who have little experience with dog ownership.
  • Not Good with Kids: In isolation, this dog breed might not be the best option for kids. However, to mitigate the risks, have the puppy grow up with kids and provide it with plenty of pleasant and relaxed experiences with them. This breed is also very friendly toward other pets and very friendly toward strangers.
