Where To Find Shih Tzu Breeders

Dec 31, 2007
It is time to add the pitter-patter of little feet to your family once again and you have decided that the pitter-patter is going to belong to a Shih Tzu puppy. The first thing you are going to need to do is find a reputable Shih Tzu breeder in your area that you are going to be able to not only get your dog from but maintain a relationship with for many years. Bringing your dog home does not mean your relationship with your breeder is over.

You will want to find a Shih Tzu breeder that you are comfortable with so make sure that you talk to many breeders and do not settle on any one until you feel like that is absolutely the person you want to do business with.

The first place you should start is the National Kennel Club. The National Kennel Club is the registry for pretty much all of the reputable breeders in the United States and they will point you in the right direction. You can give the National Kennel Club a call at (865) 932-9680 and ask them to help you find the perfect Shih Tzu breeder in your area.

Sometimes even good Shih Tzu breeders are not listed with the National Kennel Club. While this is not unusual it has happened, and one way to find the Shih Tzu breeder closest to you is by using the Internet or by using your phone book.

It may be best to go with the Internet as it takes time to make a website and people with bad business practices usually do not take the time to create a detailed website.

Another great source of information for finding a good Shih Tzu breeder is your local vet. If you already have a vet for your current pets then ask your vet about getting in touch with a reputable breeder in your area. If you do not have a vet then find the vet closest to you and ask them their advice. If you have friends or family with pets then ask them to recommend a vet for you.

The Internet is a fantastic tool for networking with other people and another way you can find good Shih Tzu breeders in your area is to scout the various Internet message boards and chat rooms that deal with Shih Tzu dogs and breeders. These people will not only help you find a good breeder but they can also answer any questions you may have and give you advice on what to watch out for. A forum such as this can be invaluable.

A Shih Tzu breeder is just as important as the dog itself as your relationship with your breeder is very important to you and your dog. Make sure you take your time looking for the right breeder and also make sure you feel completely comfortable with the breeder you finally decide on. Your family's happiness, and your new puppy's life, depend on you choosing a good breeder.
