We just got a new Shih tzu puppy…. she was 8 weeks old yesterday. She is solid white with a little black around her eyes and ears. Her beard already has a red color to it and I was wondering how you keep the Shih tzu face white? Any Shih tzu owners who have any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I worked as a dog groomer for 2 years and found this product:
it's used for the eye area (that usually turns red) on white dogs, but it works well on the beard as well.
When you take her to the groomer, ask for a "Teddy Bear Face and a long top" , this will leave her head long (for the pony-tail) and the face round but the beard a little shorter, which helps keep it out of her food.
Good Luck and congratulations on the new *baby*!
