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.
ya dont cut their eye because there sensitive
Well you must keep in mind.. for her its either this or porn.
oh so now you use the proper breed?
can I become a groomer just by experience or is it compulsary to take a course???
It wouldn't hurt any to use a CLEAN dog to do your demo on.
Shih tzus are the best breed! I have 3 and enjoy them. Thanks for the tips:)
both look cute.. n thnks fr the tips too…
This lady really likes the 40 blade which is a surgical blade…tsk tsk tsk
@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.
WAIT A MINUTE!!! I thought shih tzu had long hair 🙁 this is depressing
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 blade.you 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.
#40 under eyes…. what are you doing? 🙁
Dumbest bloody breeds alive and the owners (usually old Ladies or dumb women lookin for a little doll) most ive met dont have a clue about takin care of a dog,had a vicious wee SHITESU above me and drove everyone mad yappin till it went for a sheep dog and had its neck snapped.
