Want to live a healthier lifestyle? Get a Shih Tzu. Studies show that owning a pet helps lower blood pressure, reduce stress and staves off the sensations of depression and lonliness.While nothing can top the companionship and love of your Shih Tzu, there are some bad behaviors that are no good – from howling all the time to defecating on the floor to eating your shoes when you are not looking.
If your Shih Tzu displays this behavior, it could be acting out due to boredom, pent-up frustration or because of lack of home-training. With proper lifestyle adjustments and disciplined training, you’ll be well on our way to having a pleasant, well-behaved pet. The following tips will help your Shih Tzu become better behaved:
Keys To Training Your Shih Tzu:Neuter or spay
The Humane Society of the United States states that this common procedure could help your Shih Tzu live longer, be more virile and improve behavior issues.
Keys To Training Your Shih Tzu:Help your pet relax
Similar to people, Shih Tzus do get nervous, frustrated and stressed out. That’s why many animal doctors recommend giving your Shih Tzu a calming therapeutic, such as pet calming spray, to help relieve hyperactivity.
Made from all-natural ingredients, pet calming spray acts quickly to relieve anxiety, fear, nervousness and hyper-aggression and helps insomniac pets sleep through the night.
How to Train Your Shih Tzu:Create an exercise routine
Pamper your Shih Tzu with routinely scheduled strolls two times per day. This will help your Shih Tzu fight boredom, which might lead to bad behavior.
Training The Shih Tzu:Go to obedience school
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, enlisting your Shih Tzu in an obedience school will teach you how to manage your Shih Tzu’s actions both humanely and safely.
Tips To Training Your Shih Tzu:Be patient
Although teaching your Shih Tzu to be more disciplined may require willpower on your part, it’s definitely worth it. Indeed, as man’s best friend, your Shih Tzu will appreciate bonding with you during the process.
