Shih Tzus are a great companion breed. These furry little pups absolutely love spending time with their families, so it’s no wonder they’re such a popular choice for households with children. However, just because these dogs are known for being non-aggressive and very loving, it doesn’t mean that you can just bring a new Shih Tzu in your home without properly introducing him or her to other members of the family, including your kids.
You want to make sure to properly introduce any new pets to your children for a number of reasons. First of all, you don’t want your new pet to get scared and possibly show aggressive behavior. You also want to make sure that your children learn how to properly handle the new family member. Failing to properly acclimate your new Shih Tzu to the children of your home can lead to a very unhappy household. But don’t worry. Introductions don’t have to be hard. These tips will help everyone have an easier transition when a new pet is brought home.
