How To Stop A Shih Tzu From Being Jealous With The Other Dogs

Shih Tzu dogs are friendly and amicable but since they are companion dogs, they also tend to get jealous with other dogs too. It may not be a problem if you only have one dog at home but it will be a big issue if you have two dogs at home. You have to find a way to stop the dogs from being jealous of each other if you wish to have a fun environment at home. Here are some tips to help you out:

  • Spend some one on one time with your dogs

It is important that you set some alone time with your dogs (separately, of course!). In this way, you are assuring both of them that you love them and this is the perfect time to show them that they are important to you without them having to fight for your attention.

  • Reprimand the dog

When the dog tries to push away the other dogs just to get your attention, reprimand him. Instead of picking them up, just simply ignore them. In that way, they will be able to realize that what they’re doing is wrong.

  • Do not give into the attention seeking behavior of your dog

You will surely be tempted to do this, especially if you want to keep the peace inside the home. However, doing this encourages the bad behavior of the dog. Instead of making your job easier, it will be a lot more difficult to manage him next time he acts up.

The jealousy that your Shih Tzu shows towards the other dogs is completely natural but sometimes, it can get in the way of a loving relationship at home. Try the tips mentioned above and help your dogs find a way to reconcile with each other.
