Shih Tzu Dog Clippers and Accessories
The exact origins of this long silky haired toy dog are unknown, however it is thought to have originated in Tibet and is one the oldest dog breeds around.
Often depicted in traditional oriental art, the Shih Tzu’s name derived from the Chinese word meaning “lion dog”. The Shih Tzu is a sturdy little dog with a short muzzle and large dark eyes.
It has a long double coat that consists of a soft undercoat and rather course topcoat that is prone to mats and tangles if it is not properly managed.
To keep the coat in good condition the Shih Tzu needs to be groomed daily by brushing the coat with a slicker brush or metal grooming comb. As part of the coat maintenance, the Masterclip Shih Tzu dog clippers set is ideal to use to help reduce the bulk of the hair and keep the coat tidy.
The German Steel skip tooth blades that come in the Shih Tzu dog clipper set are perfect to use on this type of coat.
The teeth on the blades are spread further apart which helps to thin out the Shih Tzu’s dense double coat.
When the coat is shedding, a grooming rake is a good addition to have in your grooming kit as the curved blades help to strip out the unwanted loose and dead hairs.
