A Shih Tzu’s First Meal

Puppies are gluttonous creatures. When presented with a savory meal, these little animals have a tendency to splurge on their bowls and put on their mouth everything they see. When you give a whole litter of puppies a meal, this will stimulate eating habits that will teach them not to get picky when it comes to food. When puppies are accustomed to eating together, they will eat as fast and as many as they can since they know that competition is high. However, if you feed your puppies individually, they usually end up choosy with their meals and have a tendency to eat little by little. There is no right or wrong when it comes to eating training habits, however you would want, it is okay. The only important thing is you provide them with a balanced diet and complete nutrition food. And speaking of food, this little Shih Tzu here is all about it. We are guessing this is his first real meal aside from milk. Watch and get entertained by how hungry he gets.

Puppies are normally suggested to shift from an all milk diet to mashed food at around three to four weeks of age. This is also the time when baby teeth come out from the gums. Never ever give solid pellets to a month puppy suddenly as this will usually cause gastric upset. Just like this cute furball, you would expect adjustment when you give the bowl. Some would try to topple the bowl, go into their bowls or some may just swarm onto the food. Just make sure that you are close by to monitor and supervise. A towel or tissue is also necessary as this is usually a messy milestone in the pups’s lives. However, this Shih Tzu seems to disappoint us by eating flawlessly around his bowl. He may not stop from licking his face – which is totally cute, by the way, but he ends up in burying his face on his meal. We may not understand the French caption, but we only know one thing about how this Shih Tzu thinks of his food. He is totally happy – wagging his tail all throughout the video. Isn’t he adorable?
