Aggressive dog behavior doesn't happen out of the blue. Because we don't understand dog language though, we may think that dog aggression is unreasonable. It is important to understand that the first step to solving problem behavior among dogs is to first understand the reasons behind them.
There are few things in life more exciting than adding a puppy to your family. A Shih Tzu can be a good choice of pet for many reasons, but it is important to know what you are getting into before you bring your Shih Tzu puppy home from the breeder. There are many Shih Tzu health problems that are unique to this breed, and by educating yourself to what those problems are you can find a breeder who offers a line of dogs without a family history of them. It also helps you to know what to look for in your Shih Tzu, so that you can address any potential health problems early on.
