My relative may breed the sweet shih tzu.I am a little bit interested but it may not happen for a few yrs.If i do get one this is what ill do
As a pup i will fed my pup Purina pup chow till a yr old.I will feed him canned meat too.Probably the Caeser brand.I will also have water available at all times.I will feed the pup also carrots,potatoes,turnip,peas etc.as an adult he will eat natural balance.
My pup will have a few hrs of exersise a day plus cuddle time.
bath once a month ,brushing every day.his hair will be in a ponytail to keep it out of his face.nail clipping regularie.
Puppy chow wasn't the best choice for my puppies, you should read the ingredients on the food. Corn is a filler in a lot of dog foods and the closer to the front of the list the more it contains. Dogs cant really digest corn properly and trust me with high corn content comes alotta poop. Try something with rice which is easier to digest.
animal lover...all kinds of dog food manufacturers make puppy food, Purina puppy chow is not the only puppy food out there. I think the consensus is that you might want to consider feeding your puppy a better quality puppy food :)
It's good that you're thinking about things ahead of time, this way, you can get all kinds of information :) best of luck to you!
