Good Shih Tzu Cuts

Aug 27, 2008
People love to give Shih Tzu cuts to their dogs and they love for those cuts to display maybe a little of the owner's personality. But if you spend enough time with your Shih Tzu you begin to realize that your Shih Tzu has a personality of its own and you should always try and get your Shih Tzu dog's cut to reflect the personality of your dog as much as your own. After all, your dog is the one that has to wear the cut.

You do have some standard rules that need to be followed when it comes to grooming your Shih Tzu and these have to be followed because they affect your dog's health. Always keep the hair around the eyes trimmed as long hair in the eyes drives a Shih Tzu crazy and can cause an unhealthy infection. Keep the hair short in the summer and long in the winter to help avoid any unnecessary exposure to the elements. The long hair may look great in July but it is unhealthy for your dog.

You can get some great ideas for Shih Tzu cuts from pictures on the Internet. The internet is a great resource for just about anything you need and there are sites out there run by every day Shih Tzu owners that show some of their hair cut ideas. And then there are the websites hosted and updated by professional groomers. You will find a lot of great ideas on the Internet for your Shih Tzu cut.

There is no computer software that will let you preview a Shih Tzu cut on your dog so make sure you take the time to really look pictures over before you start cutting your dog's hair. The hair on a Shih Tzu grows fast but they still have to live with a bad cut for a while so make sure of what you really want on your dog by planning it out somehow before you actually start putting scissors to your dog's hair.

Since your Shih Tzu dog's coat is made of hair like a human and not fur you will probably have to blow dry your dog's hair. This prevents Shih Tzu cuts from matting or causing any health problems. Always use low heat and start from the back of your dog.

Just start at the back of your dog with low heat and move towards the front. Always brush the areas you are drying to prevent matting, as this is unhealthy for your dog.

Saving money is a great thing and doing it yourself is always fun but maybe you should leave the Shih Tzu cut to a professional. You can tell a professional what you want and they will always have great ideas for you to consider as well.

A professional will take great care of your dog and even have some very good ideas for your Shih Tzu cut that you may have never thought of. Plus your dog would probably love being pampered once a month.
