I Want to Learn About the Shih Tzu Breed

Once you've decided on a breed, you'll likely want to know as much as possible about it.  I picked this breed about forty years ago and have been studying it ever since.  As a pet owner, you're probably not that interested in studying the official breed standard, but you might want to know why and how the Shih Tzu coat tends to change colors over time.  If you love history, knowing a little about your dog's ancestors will help you understand her current temperament.  So if history is your thing, we have you covered on that too.

There is no such thing as different breeds of Shih Tzu, but you've probably encountered people who talk about imperial or teacup size Shih Tzu.  What does that even mean?  You might also be surprised that many people search out Shih Tzu mixes or hybrids and wonder what all the fuss is about.  Sometimes called designer dogs, Shih Tzu dogs are used in all types of hybrid mixes.  Perhaps you'd like to know if a Shih Tzu dog would make a good emotional support animal.  There's just so much to explore about this breed.

I Want to Purchase a Shih Tzu Puppy

Our puppies are healthy and happy and home-grown here in Hudson, Ohio.  While we don't always have available puppies for sale, we try hard to produce puppies with excellent temperaments, healthy and conform to the AKC breed standards.  We are members of the local Better Business Bureau and have won the 2022 Best in Hudson Award for Dog Breeders.

I Want to Learn How to Care for a Shih Tzu

We tend to think about our little Shih Tzu as a child and member of the family.  They are definitely members of our families, but they still remain canine, no matter how "human" they seem at times.  I have learned over the years that my dogs have taught me so much about being a parent and teacher, but they do have their differences. 

What to feed, what not to feed, how to groom and where to begin with training are all topics that new owners or even seasoned dog lovers may want to know.

I Want to Know More About Puppies

A new puppy brings a bundle of joy and new hopes into our lives but with it also brings responsibility and a little extra work.  We have plenty of articles on the site all about puppy care, from learning how to puppy proof your home, to how to introduce your new pup to the world. 

From the very first day (and night) you will want to start off right by potty training and teaching a few house rules. 

You may even decide that you'd like to take your new puppy to kindergarten.  Later on, you will likely want to teach a few basic commands, and you may even need a few pointers on how to groom a puppy.  Maybe you'd just like to have some basic information about Shih Tzu Puppies:
