This should be an exciting milestone for your 5-month-old Shih Tzu! Cutting their hair for the first time can help them feel more comfortable and maintain a healthy coat. It’s important to approach the grooming process with patience and care, making sure you use the appropriate tools and techniques for their sensitive coat. Remember to reward your puppy with treats and praise them for their co-operation during the grooming session. Enjoy the fresh haircut and the cute new look of your little Shih Tzu!
