Shih Tzu Hair Care

Updated: Aug 22, 2021

Shih Tzus are high-maintenance when it comes to their hair! They have human-like hair that should be brushed often. I use a stainless steel comb. I proceed cautiously to avoid pulling on any possible mats. They should be groomed every 6 weeks if possible. You can opt for a teddy bear or puppy cut to cut down on maintenance. Your groomer probably will have a lot of great tips for you as well. I strongly advise waiting until after the 3rd round of vaccines is complete at around 16 weeks before making an appointment with a groomer. 🐶
