Shih Tzu

Shih Tzus, renowned for their intelligence and elegant two-layered hair, possess a unique coat composition. Their undercoats are soft and hairy, while the topcoats are long, thin, and silky, contributing to their distinctive appearance.

Shih Tzus do experience shedding, but it differs from many other breeds. Instead of fur, they have hair, which results in less noticeable shedding. The majority of shed hair doesn't fall onto their surroundings; rather, it becomes entangled in the Shih Tzu's coat. This means that regular washing and brushing are essential to manage their shedding effectively.

During grooming sessions, it's common to find entangled hairs in the topcoat, and brushing them out is a routine part of maintaining a Shih Tzu's coat health. This careful grooming not only manages shedding but also ensures that the Shih Tzu's beautiful topcoat remains in optimal condition.
