Actually, Shih Tzu’s are gentle, affectionate, and spunky people. They are loyal and happy, according to Dog Breed Info.
What are Shih Tzu’s like?
If you are allergic to many dogs, Shih Tzu would offer relief. They shed very little hair. So this could be a breed to consider if you suffer from allergies. Shih Tzu like to be with people, and they are all right around other pets, in general.
Training a Shih Tzu
They are responsive to training, so it is a very good idea to provide some consistent training for the Shih Tzu so he does not think he is the boss of the house. If he believes he is the boss of his humans, or the leader of the pack, there could be behavioral issues. He may snap or growl or even bite. He would bark to tell you what he wants because he has to defend his position of leader of the pack. If you help him learn the house rules with consistent reinforcement, he’ll be a happier dog.
A Shih Tzu’s exercise needs
Even though he can burn off energy indoor, he still needs his daily walk to help burn off his physical and mental energy. Shih Tzu needs to have their hair brushed daily. Their eyes are sensitive, so clean them regularly. You can learn more about Shih Tzu here. Enjoy watching this energetic Shih Tzu jumping all over the bed.
