Dog Grooming : Tips on Grooming Shih Tzus

Big Admin April 12, 2018 16

Grooming Shih Tzus regularly is important, as they are quite prone to getting mats in their thick soft fur. Brush out a Shih Tzu’s coat on a daily basis, trimming the fur around their feet…

    Recently I've been getting a lot of people coming to me with there Shih Tzus that are completely matted and bad coat condition. One time it took me 5 hours to groom one dog that was so matted and smelly it looked like he had never been groomed or bathed in his life! I made him look fabulous of course 🙂

    Thanks for giving the blade # for between the eyes. I groom mine myself and always attempt in between the eyes with a blunt scissors, but I am always afraid they will jerk and get poked.

    It wouldn't hurt any to use a CLEAN dog to do your demo on.

    @eHow…. The proper pronunciation is "Shih Tzu." As in Sheed Zoo and not Shit zoos… There is no "s" sound at the end ever. Shih Tzu is singular and plural …. It is "Shih Tzu" if your are speaking of one or more Shih Tzu.

    I only use a 10 between the eyes, a 40 with a wiggly dog is a disaster waiting to happen. I'll use a 15 on the pads. I can get closer with a 15 then a girl I work with who uses a 30. I don't think I'd ever use a 40 except under a snap on comb and even then if my 30 or 9 is busted.

    I have been a groomer for 15 years and I agree that a number 40 blade is a surgical blade, it is very dangerous to use that blade around their eyes….I recommend a number 10 can however use a number 40 blade on the pads of the feet. Also what they are not telling you if you are not a groomer is you need multiple blades as the blades get hot during use…keep switching blades.
