Re: Teeth brushing

I'm another advocate of using a piece of cloth with toothpaste on it. I use a piece of muslin and clean my shih tzu's teeth every day and have done since we got her 4yrs ago. Last visit to the vet he said what beautiful teeth she has! We do also feed her a raw diet which I'm sure goes some way to ke...

Re: I don't seem to be coping very well with my puppy

Yeah I have heard shih tzu's just "pretend" to be stupid :roll: I do try to train Daisy every day but some days it feels like Groundhog Day. I know she knows what "down" means as she has learned it, however she will only do a "down" for a treat and as soon as the treat is eaten she gets up. I try to...

Re: I don't seem to be coping very well with my puppy

Thanks for the replies. Funnily enough yesterday she was like a totally different puppy and spent much more time just chilling out. We are going out walking when it's dark at the moment as it's the only time my husband is home. So we are out for the first walk at about 6.30am and Daisy is always so ...

Re: I don't seem to be coping very well with my puppy

I thought we were walking her for about the right amount of time for her age. I'm not really able to go any longer as I suffer with agoraphobia and the most I can manage is 20mins and I do that with my husband as I'm not able to get out alone. We bought this particular breed purely because we were t...

I don't seem to be coping very well with my puppy

We have a 13yr old chocolate labrador and 3mths ago bought a shih tzu puppy who we have now had for 3mths and she is now just under 8mths old. The problems I am having are twofold. Firstly Daisy seems to want to be outside all the time, which is confusing me as I thought a shih tzu was a small dog t...

Re: Labrador Retrievers?

We have a beautiful 13yr old chocolate labrador and she was my first ever dog, although my other half had already had 2 labrador cross dogs before that. Have to say they have a wonderful nature but I do agree they can be quite destructive. We took ours to puppy classes as soon as we could and I reca...
