    To know a Shih Tzu is to love a Shih Tzu . . . they’re irresistible, coy, flirtatious, and passionately devoted companions. They love the good life, and though they can be shrewd (or selectively deaf, or consciously naive), the Shih Tzu is so endearing that even “big dog” lovers find themselves swooning over this adorable breed. But is the Chinese Charmer the right match for you? Shih Tzu for Dummies answers all of your questions, like:
    • What is a Shih Tzu really like?
    • Can I get a Shih Tzu if I have children or other pets?
    • How difficult is grooming? Can I do it myself or should I get a professional?
    • How do I find a good breeder? What about a good vet?
    • What should my Shih Tzu eat?
    • Do small dogs really need that much training?
    • How can I teach my Shih Tzu some basic commands?

    The Shih Tzu is built for one job and one job alone: to be your close personal friend for life. A dog bred for companionship must be allowed to do its job, and its job is to be with you. So, if you have the time (for grooming), dedication (for training), and room (on your lap and in your heart), the Shih Tzu is a small dog with a lot of love just waiting for a new best friend.

    • Shih Tzu for Dummies

      This book had a lot of information on my puppy. I ordered it along with another shih tzu book, and this one far exceeded the other in useful information. It is the only book you need. It covers all areas of caring for this kind of dog, and I will refer back to it over the lifetime of my shih tzu because it contains information for all of her life stages. Very easy to read and very practical, as well as being enjoyable to read.
