Thanks for your advise. I am about to purchase my second pair of blades and I have been tossing up between #4 and #7.I also prefer nice short finish. I have been using #10 with combs but as you mention I find it does tug on the hair, especially the curly parts.

I have 3 Shi-Tzu mixes, Mom, Dad ( who is now fixed ) and baby girl. I am going to try to clip my dogs feet and nails myself as i can not afford the groomer right now. Thank you for the tips and i am saving this to my iPad so that if i have more questions i have a great place to look!

Thank you so much. I have 3 Shih Tzu's. Mom and 2 of her pups. I cannot afford to take all three to the groomers and they are in dire need of a clipping. This helps tremendously. Thank you

I stopped giving my shih tzu treats that contained red dye, and his tear stains went away. I check everything that I feed him to make sure that it contains no red dye. I had previously read that some shih tzus are allergic to the red dye in foods and treats.

Just exactly what I wanted to know in regard to grooming my little Shih Tzu man. He is matted and needs more regular care than he's getting. This encourages me to try grooming at home. Thank you.

Any ideas on how to remove the discoloration around their eyes. It looks reddish and seems to be increasing.

I have recently adopted a shih tzu, and she seems to be matting profusly.. I have had to cut her almost down to the skin in places just to relive the skin from pain. What is the best way to keep her from matting? I never had this problem with her matting until the vet had to shave her down to the skin due to a severe rotwilerand pit bull attack. Since her new hair has grown in she is matting badly, and I brush her daily. She is very sensitive in the places that the drain tubes were put in. any suggestions?
