Things To Buy For Your New Shih Tzu

You have finally made the biggest decision of your life—to get a puppy! Congratulations! And you have chosen a Shih Tzu, good choice! For sure, you are excited to bring him home. But before you do that, are you sure you have everything you need to take good care of that cute little pup. If you are not sure, we have provided a list of the basic puppy supplies you may need.

  • Dog bowls

Get two dog bowls– one for water and one for the dog food. We recommend that you opt for the stainless steel bowls as these are less susceptible to bacteria.

  • Dog bed

To make sure that your puppy will be comfortable in his new home, buying a dog bed is a must. Make sure that the size of the bed will not be too big or too small for him. For your convenience, opt for one with washable fabric.

  • Grooming supplies

Oh, we all know how high maintenance the coat of the Shih Tzu can get. To properly take care of his coat, you will need toenail clippers, stainless steel comb, dog brush, dog shampoo, toothbrush, dog toothpaste and blow dryer.

  • Dog food

To make sure that you will provide your dog a well-balanced and healthy diet, you should take a closer look at the product’s ingredient list.

  • Baby gate

If your home has a second floor, you should make sure that your puppy is safe by installing a baby gate by the stairs. You can also install one in the doorway to prevent your new puppy from going out of the house.

  • Dog toys

These are a must to keep your new pup busy the whole day. You can choose between a small rubber ball or a chew bone.

So, what are you waiting for? Go out there and buy everything on the list that we have provided. You will need these to take good care of your furbaby. Good luck on your new endeavor, pawrent!
