My shih tzu is untrainable - and I think a little retarded?

Friday, July 30th, 2010

In January, my sister who was in Nunavut volunteering at an animal shelter decided to rescue a little Shih Tzu and send her to us. However, my sister knew nothing of the dog’s history, who her previous owners were, etc. She is a loving, affectionate dog, but she does seem quite stupid as she will run into things. Most of all, we’ve had her for over 6 months now and she still doesn’t understand the concept of going to the bathroom outside. She’s gotten a little bit better but still has accidents frequently and it’s ruining our house. We assume that she was abused as a puppy which may have contributed to her "slowness", as a bone in her chest juts out weirdly. The vet said it was a possibility as well.

basically what I’m wondering is, is this dog trainable or should we cut her losses and find her a home (even though it pains us) that will be more willing to put more time into it. We also have an older dog that she bothers quite a bit.

You should start the house training from scratch - take her outside everytime she wakes up, after meals and before you leave her or put her to bed.
Join a training class - she is not too old to learn a dog at my local class just won an award and he didn’t start training until he was 10.

question about imperial shih tzu?

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

How come imperial shih tzu is so expensive?Why do breeder don’t want us to breed their dog and have to sign a contract to spay/neuter? Since we paid $1,000 and up why can’t we breed them or can..

They don’t want you to breed them because they are basically "runts" bred with other "runts". If you have a puppy that is an "imperial" shih tzu, there is more chances that it will have health issues. Alas, you breed a puppy that already has two times that chance of having abnormalities, even if you breed the pup with a normal dog, your puppies will have abnormalities.

To all Shih-Tzu owners…?

I am interested in adopting a Shih-Tzu dog. Is this a good family dog? Is their hair similar to a Shnauzers’s hair (like cotton) or more like ours (silky) How intelligent are they also? Anyone with information please share!
Thanks

I worked with a breeder and groomed my grandmothers shitzu. Their fur is more like human hair. It also continuously grows and needs lots of maitenence. They are barkers, but can be trained out of it at an early age.

They are a pretty good family dog, but might not do so well with young children.

They have an average intelligence and like most smaller breeds needs a bit more work with training,b ut they will be your best friend no matter what.

Just remember to groom it right and train it right and you’ll be good to go :3
