Helping you to make your shih tzu happy and well-behaved

No matter how aggressive, badly behaved, or stubborn your shih tzu may be, by using the right approach and the right techniques, you can have a shih tzu that is not only well-disciplined, but is also a happy dog.

You can develop your shih tzu into a happy, well-behaved dog using the same techniques that I have researched over many years and have successfully put into practice with my two boys.

Why I like writing about shih tzu

I once had a dog up until my early teens. He was called Spot because of a white patch on his chest. After he passed away, I never intended to have another dog.

That was until Bruno came along. I adopted Bruno when his previous parent could no longer look after him.

Well, in reality, it was more like Bruno adopted me.

Spot - my childhood dog.
Spot gone for over 50-years, but never forgotten.

I have been through a lot with Bruno. He has several serious illnesses, though thankfully his medication appears to keep him pain free, stress free, and most importantly, alive.

Though generally very laid-back, Bruno did have minor aggression issues in his younger days that needed to be dealt with.

Several years later, along came Charlie. He was in a basket in a dingy pet shop window along with four other puppies of various breeds. Charlie was definitely getting the worst deal in the basket, and so I “rescued” him by buying him. Thankfully, soon after my purchase  the pet shop was closed down.

Charlie was much more stressed out than Bruno. He had more serious aggression issues and a poop-eating obsession. Both of these problems needed to be dealt with.

So, I am sure that you can appreciate that for the sake of my two boys I have done a lot of research into shih tzu behavior and medical conditions. 

Whilst carrying out this research I found that when on social media I was commenting on problems other shih tzu parents were facing, offering advice based on the same solutions that helped me with Bruno and Charlie.

That’s when I had my light bulb moment, and Shihtzuandyou was born. So here I am, ready to help you to the best of my knowledge with any shih tzu related issues you may have.

Best wishes to you from Shih Tzu Steve, Bruno and Charlie.
