Shih Tzu Insurance

The Shih Tzu is one of the oldest dog breeds which may have been bred by Tibetan Monks and given as gifts to Chinese royalty. It was first brought to England in 1928 to be the affectionate lap dog which it remains today. This is a very adaptable toy breed which can fit in to town or country life. Another of the brachycephalic breeds the Shih Tzu can suffer significantly from breathing difficulties. Their squashed in face and relatively shorter upper jaw leave limited space for a full set of teeth! They often require regular dental treatment in spite of regular teeth cleaning and care. Their coats should be groomed daily.


Early socialisation and basic training is recommended for all breeds. It is essential for the Shih Tzu and will help with house training as this can be challenging and take longer than with some other breeds.
