Written on: 29/04/2010

I have a shitz tzu girl age 7 month. I have had Tilly since she was 8 weeks old. I really love her and she loves me-sumtimes too much! She has a great nature and everybody loves her especially my 2 children whom she just cant get enough of. I took Tilly to a Puppy training class, i would recommend this to any dog owner. It has taught her 2 be good around other dogs. There was all kinds of dogs at the puppy training and she loved it.It taught her to be social with other dogs. I thought that… Read Full Review

“I have a one year old male Shih Tzu. I got him when he...”

Written on: 29/10/2009

I have a one year old male Shih Tzu. I got him when he was 4 months old & he is absolutely adorable. He is extremely spoilt and well cared for. I have not had any problems with him being vicious. We often joke he's like a grumpy old man as he sometimes gets a little moody if somebody interrupts when he is spending time with me. This is rare though, he's only done this about twice the whole time we've had him - never bitten anyone or anything but gets a bit moody and will move away from the… Read Full Review

I have got s shih tzu at the moment and OMG i love him soo much!!

I spoke to a trainer and we were intending to train him on our own and she said to me, and these are her exact words
' Shih Tzu's are such family orientated animals that the training really should be done by the owner but hints and tips can be given.'
Romeo was dead easy to train with cheese and chicken. you need to do it quickly from an early age or they lose interest. I done 1 1/2 hours of training everynight with Romeo and he… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/05/2009 by shanban14 (1 review written)

I just recently was given a shih tzu for my birthday and i can only describe him as a delightful, sweet little ball of fluff!
He shed's no hair at all and is very well behaved when it comes to washing and grooming him, he sits patiently waiting till i let him go and play.
He is so friendly with everyone he meets!
They really are a fabulous breed and in my opinion the cutest aswell!
I could not ask for a better dog at 10 weeks he is almost toilet trained. He understands sit and knows when we say… Read Full Review

“I used to have a Shih Tzu and he was a lovable little...”

Written on: 08/04/2009 by wikidzmon (34 reviews written)

I used to have a Shih Tzu and he was a lovable little scamp! He was probably the least intelligent dog that i have had and he did get aggressive from time to time but on the whole he was a very entertaining little chap.

I found it very difficult train him to do anything interesting other than sit (under duress) and as i say, he was a little bitey hence the low score but i thought he looked cute and had a funny old face

Definitely a scamp!… Read Full Review

“Shih Tzus are so loveable they are a really good dog...”

Written on: 09/10/2005 by BeBe23 (1 review written)

Shih Tzus are so loveable they are a really good dog to have if you are looking for a sweet loving companion. They tend to need lots of attention and can be jealous. They are usually very laid back, if you are looking to have a dog that will just lay around the house with you then you could not ask for a better dog. Like all dogs it depends on how you treat it; if you are playful and ruff with it, then if will be playful and rough with you. Their personalities are much like the… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/08/2005 by fairygirl (1 review written)

These dogs may look cute and unthreatening, but watch out! I have known two separate Shih Tzus in my life, and they were both horribly mean dogs. My aunt and uncle had one that was so mean they had to lock it up when anyone came over, and they finally had to get rid of it when they wanted to have a baby. My boyfriend's parents currently have a Shih Tzu that is perfectly fine with them and has had extensive obedience training. However, he has bitten numerous people when unprovoked--family… Read Full Review

Hchoc2405's Response to 207110_fairygirl's Review

Written on: 03/10/2005

I don't know where you are coming from saying Shih Tzu's are nasty
<br>I bred Shih Tzu's for a number of years.
<br>I have had to stop now because of ill health but had the last three living with me until my last one (Sophie) died at the age of 12 years and 11 months.
<br>I never experienced bad temper with any of them - as soon as they were delivered I would be there to stroke the side of there faces very softly.
<br>I firmly believe that this makes them very placid and stoic and even when they are older they like nothing better than to sit on your lap being stroked on there faces.

If there is a problem with the Shih Tzu, or any other dog for that matter...then the problem lies with the owner and the way they're raised and socialized.

I have a shih tzu and all we get is compliments on what a lovely temperament he has. Shih tzu do not have a nasty bone in their bodies and if these shih tzu our nasty it is down to the owner and how the dog has been brought up.

Written on: 03/01/2006

hi, it is unfortunate that you would generalize about these wonderful little dogs. dogs behavior , whether they be shih tzu or labs, depends on the way they are treated, socialized and brought up.
<br>dogs need to be trained through classes and repetitive obedience training. dogs who do not go through training do not know what is expected of them. owners who dont train their dogs can t expect them to know what they are supposed to or arent supposed to do. did the two dogs you mentioned receive training? how were they treated. ultimately, a dogs actions are a reflection of their owners. it is always the owners responsibility if the dog does something wrong. i think it is so sad that you would generalize about the entire breed like this because you know of two shih tzus and you heard this and that. do you even own one?
<br>my shih tzu has gone through training, is a certified therapy dog and is so great with kids. they could poke her in the eye (which they have done) and she would never do anything but blink and maybe back away out of surprise. it is unfortunate you have not met better mannered shih tzus. they are honestly little angels in fur.

hi, i think that all dogs, no matter if they are shih tzus or labs, it depends on the way they are treated, socialized and brought up. Did any of the shih tzus you mention get obedience training?? i for one firmly believe in obedience and training. if you do not take the time to spend and train it to act how you want or do not want it to act, then it is the owners fault.
<br>i have a shih tzu and she would never bite anyone. it kind of sucks that you would generalize about this breed since you've heard this and that, but do you own one?

I think that the Shih Tzu is a very loveable dog to have. When they bite, they don't want to let go and it really is very painful. They do tend to get so close to you, that you tend to trip over them… Read Full Review

“Did you know the colour of a shiddy (shih tzu), can...”

Written on: 07/02/2005 by hallelujah baby (1 review written)

Did you know the colour of a shiddy (shih tzu), can change, so the colour you start out with is not necessarily the same you end up with!!

They can have snuffles until all their teeth are through, so olbas oil sprinkled on bedding can help them breathe better during this period. By five months this should no longer be a problem, so if a vet says it has a nose problem and needs surgery, dont accept it, wait till the teeth are all done growing through.

To keep white faces white, give your… Read Full Review
