A well-groomed Shih Tzu is not just more adorable, but it's also healthier. Dogs or puppies that aren't kept clean and hygenic will be vulnerable to a wide range of ailments, including infections. Grooming also makes a dog feel loved and cared for, something all Shih Tzus love. Dogs that don't feel loved can be depressed, broody and may not take on negative behaviors. It is thus necessary to groom your dog with regularity, and that starts with washing or bathing your dog regularly.
Before we talk about how to wash your dog, it is necessary to note that dogs don't have a generic bathing schedule. You must consider the breed, the type of skin and coat a dog has, the age and the kind of activities that the canine indulges in. Consult a vet before you chalk out a schedule.
Here is how you should wash your Shih Tzu.
