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.
The thing with Shih Tzu's is that they are a VERY high maitenance dog. Their face needs to wiped DAILY to keep the stains off, and even then there WILL be some staining!
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*!
