Searching for a good shih tzu breeder is the most important decision you will make when selecting your new puppy. This person is responsible for your puppy’s health and temperament. Finding a dedicated, responsible breeder is the key to having the shih tzu pup you will treasure for the rest of your life.

Most responsible breeders maintain websites to provide you valuable information about the health, care and training of your shih tzu. These breeders use their sites to announce future breeding plans, tell their winnings in the show and their performances, and display pictures of their dogs. But be warned, not all breeders that have sites are good and responsible breeders. So you still need to gather information about the breeder.

You can also contact Philippine Canine Club and ask for a referral. You can call PCCIat 721-8345. They have a database of shih tzu breeders and they can refer you to a good shih tzu breeder. Your veterinarian may also be able to refer you to shih tzu breeders in your area.

Another good way to find a reputable breeder is to attend a dog show. You will not find puppies for sale in a dog show but you will be able to meet the breeders. You can see their adult dogs and you can find out when  new litters are expected. Just make sure that you will approach them after they are done showing their shih tzu. They cannot entertain you during the show and while grooming their shih tzu. So better watch the show first and talk to them after the show.
