You have heard there are Shih Tzu puppies for sale in many places, and you want to know if it is the right breed for you? Well, let’s look at the major points you will want to know or consider before you make your decision.
First and foremost, you will quickly see that the Shih Tzu puppies for sale are unnaturally adorable. Many people refer to them as surreal in their cuteness, like an impossibly huggable toy. Yet, there is more to dog ownership than finding the dog irresistible and adorable. You must also consider your household.
Though almost all Shih Tzu dogs are laid back and relatively calm, even as puppies, you need to be sure your household is ready for a smaller dog and the training it takes to help them figure out how to live with you in your home. As is so often the case, it is often wrongly viewed that a dog that is not training easily or well is a problem. That is not the case at all. It is 100% the trainer who is at fault if the dog is not understanding what is being asked.
The good news is that the Shih Tzu breed is quite easily trained, and is among the most intelligent breeds you may encounter. They do, however, have a coat that requires a lot of attention, and it is here that the dog can feel “unruly”, though it is the coat and not the dog itself that is challenging.
So, if your home is one in which a funny, relaxed and intelligent dog will fit in well, and where a bit of daily grooming is not a problem, then it is likely that one of the Shih Tzu puppies for sale will fit in well for you. They are small and, as stated, easy to train. They can live well into their teens, and ideal for families, individuals, seniors and living spaces of almost any size.
You will want to allow them to have space to roam outdoors, but keep an eye during colder weather as snow can stick to the coat and make it difficult for the dog to move, and freezing weather can be damaging to their feet. They may even need to be paper trained for winter seasons if you find your temperatures are at freezing for many days or weeks on end.
