Characteristics of a Shih Tzu?
Hello! I have a shih tzu/poodle mix although I find he's more on the shih tzu side. I've done some research on their typical personalities and find he definitely resembles those traits. I'm currently reading Dog Whisperer's Short Guide to a Happy Dog and he encourages dog owners to promote the specific breeds' behavior (ie: hunting dogs, water dogs, etc.). I'm just curious if anyone knows what the breed specific 'job' is for a shih tzu? It's certainly not a water dog, hunting, herding, etc. Anyway, just wondering if anyone knows or if anyone else has a shih tzu that can tell me how they use up their playful energy! Thanks!
