Hi Jane,

If she's new to the environment and was just left by her owner, maybe she's just missing them. Give her time to adjust to her new environment. Give her space to discover all the areas in her new home.

It is also good if she is trained to use puppy pads as it will come in handy during these times wherein she cannot go outside.

Is her eating normal?

Hi Dan,

Can you please describe how you feed your shih tzu?

Does he have access to his food the whole day? How many times do you feed Ace dry food and how many cups per day?

Hi Dan,

May I know how do you feed your shih tzu? Do you leave his food bowl the whole day?

Introduce Yourself / Fostering a dog in need

Hi.  This is my first experience with a shih tzu.  Her owner is leaving the country.  I am dog-sitting, soon to become fostering, to maybe become adopting her.  She is four years old and has had some crazy people as owners.

My husband and I have a small house, and a cat.  The dog is not aggressive, just curious enough to make the cat anxious.  No one has been injured (yet), but the dog is probably feeling stressed.  She has not lived with a cat before.

She is not reliably house-trained.  Her current owner has taught her to use "puppy pads" indoors instead.  With time, I am confident that we can work through this.  But this week, it's cold outside. 

Over the last two days, she has gone from hyper to very sedate.  Could she be depressed?  Can I do anything to help her?  As I said, this is my first experience with a shih tzu.  Any advice would be much appreciated.  She is a sweet girl and I'd like to adopt her, but not if she's going to be unhappy here.

Everything Under the Sun / Quality aluminium cookware at a few clicks away!
« Last post by JonesHensey on October 27, 2014, 06:21:53 PM »
Hey guys! Did you ever know that you can you have an option of cash on delivery when you buy aluminium cookware online? Yes, they are popularly known as COD. Most of the popular online stores out there offer this facility. In this case, you can pay the price for the cookware when they are delivered at your end. Wouldnít that be convenient? Many of the people choose this option so as to be surer of the online service. If you pay the amount in advance, you would have apprehensions about the delivery of the product you order. Isnít that right? It would be more if you are dealing with the brand for the first time. So the cash on delivery facility would be a great opportunity. So no more concerns to make the online purchase!

To make things easier for their customers, the popular brands are now very keen on providing them the best experience online. The websites and online stores are being made more and more user-friendly. You can scroll through the available types of cookware with ease. Pick the ones that go well with your likes and preferences and place the order. No, you do not have to get tensed about the quality of the products. No need of any compromises on that. They would be the same as that you buy from your trusted shops out there. Moreover, there are also facilities to return the products if they are found damaged or tampered with. However, such a situation rarely occurs.

Food and Diet / Finicky Eater Driving Me Crazy

Greetings from Miami! You are speaking to a first time Shih Tzu owner, but Iíve had mini Schnauzers for over 25 years.   We adopted Ace our first Shih Tzu a year ago and he definitely is not a Schnauzer.  Much more stubborn and much more of a lap dog.  The good and the bad. He is now three years old and has settled in very well with our younger Schnauzer.  We finally got his tear stains under control using distilled water and grain free foods.  But the food is the problem.  He is the most finicky eater I have ever seen.  He will eat anything fish or chicken or beef, or pork and loves carrots and peas.  But when it comes to any type of commercial dog food he is terrible at accepting it.  Weíve tried Blue Buffalo, Wellness, Authority, and now Merrick.  He will reluctantly eat some of it at first but after the first few days he has to be force fed a few kibbles before he will eat a handful or two.  Sometimes he wonít eat at all.  Donít get me wrong, we rarely give him human food, accept as a treat in the morning with his multi-vitamin tablet, which he always eats.  The treats are either a small carrot, a small piece of hot dog, or a chicken heart (I sautee chicken hearts in olive oil with a little garlic powder and the dogs love them!)  As you see, weíve tried to go to very healthy foods.  But he continues to eat very little.  The vet says he is ok and he is very energetic and playful.  His coat is fine and his tear stains are gone.  But he has lost weight and Iím tired of trying to force feed him dry food.  Oh by the way, canned wet food rarely goes over any better than dry.  The Schnauzer is a typical hound and eats anything and everything!  Help!  Any suggestions?   Best Regards. Dan
