When you adopt a Shih Tzu, you become the primary caregiver and parent to that pet. This means that you have to keep your pet safe, healthy, and protected at all times. Here are nine tips for being the best parent to your Shih Tzu.
1. Train Your Shih Tzu

Just as parents teach their children what's right and wrong, you should also teach your fur baby how to behave. This includes house training and teaching your pet to not engage in bad behaviors including biting, chewing, and excessive barking.
