Little Lion Dog
Who couldn’t find the Shih-Tzu adorable? They look like tiny lions, and indeed the full breed name, Shih-Tzu Kou, means “lion dog”. The Dowager Empress Tzu Hsi, who ruled China during the Victorian age, considered the Shih Tzu to be sacred, just as those who came before her did. So if they are good enough for her they should be good enough for anyone.
But finding a dog endearing and being able to look after it properly are two entirely separate things.
This is where Little Lion Dog: Raising, Training and Loving your Shih-Tzu comes in.
This charming book will teach you everything you need to know about caring for your charming little Shih-Tzu, so that you will be able to share many happy years together.
You can learn from someone with experience about the temperament, lifespan and physical characteristics of the dogs as well as some of the fascinating history surrounding them.
The book looks in depth at how to choose the right food for your pet, making sure it retains a healthy weight, treats and feeding schedules, as well as trouble-shooting if your dog suddenly gains some extra weight.
Grooming, exercise and training are all important parts of owning your pet, and the author places great emphasis on this, as helping to make sure it is well behaved will mean your daily walk will be much less stressful. And, of course, there is always the dreaded visits to the vet to contend with. Something that few dogs enjoy.
Everything is covered and nothing is left to chance. A perfect companion book for looking after your new Shih-Tzu.
