Day to Day

The day to day requirements of a Shih Tzu are relatively low. Mainly, a little food, a little water, a little exercise, and some grooming of course. Oh, and lots of love and attention!

Shih Tzus love their food, but an obese Shih Tzu is likely to live a shorter life. Give your Shih Tzu only the food manufacturer’s daily recommended amount.

A daily brush is a necessity for your Shih Tzu. For more information on Shih Tzu grooming, see our recommended grooming information here: Shih Tzu Grooming.

For details on Shih Tzu exercise requirements, read our more detailed information here: Shih Tzu Exercise.
