Grooming a Shih Tzu - Basic Clip

5350 ratings | 765782 views
Shih Tzu Grooming | In this video this Shih Tzu is clipped short for easy maintenance. I use a #2 stainless steel comb over a #30 blade on the body and legs, TopKnot, cheeks and face. Thinning scissors are used after clipping the head and face for a softer look. Tail is scissored 1" off the length while leaving long to flow over the back while the Shih Tzu is holding up the tail. Ears are trimmed at the bottom while leaving them long.

My groomer comes to my home to groom J.J. I do not like to have him crated. He is a Registered Service Dog. You can never find a more loyal dog than a ShihTzu. I’m 67 and he is my third. I wouldn’t take all of the money in the world for him. Doesn’t yap, whine or bark unless he thinks I am in harms way.❤️💋❤️💋❤️💋🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

I need help with my shih tsu no place will take her to get groom cause she very aggressive wana bite, we have to pay to put her to sleep to give her a grooming please help

Very bad that you're using sharp tipped scissors!! Especially around the eyes!! Bad example for others
Love of Grooming (3 months ago)
???, its like telling a surgeon not to use a sharp scalpel, lol. I know what I am doing, you are welcome to use blunted shears if you are a beginner. 1000's of groomers use these shears on the face and eyes. Only beginners use blunt tip or if the dog is moving too much.
Filiberto Orozco (3 months ago)
Thank you for the videos. How do you deal with difficult Shih Tzu. I'm a learner, I had learned on my own because my 5 year old female Shih tzu has lost the ability to walk and no pet shop would take her. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Again thank you for the videos.

Thanks. It doesn't look hard at all. I'm great at doing new things. This dog looks just like my dog. Her name is Karlye ( Kar-lee) I know someone from MS with the same name. A friend/ classmate of mine. Wow. they are twins. She looks exactly like that. Im looking for a puppy that will look like my dog, and the one in the video.

So cute ! My ex wife left me and took my shih tzu.

I want to commend you on the way you hold the dogs heads on all your videos. I see so many groomers putting their hand right around dogs' muzzles and it's so upsetting because they can't breathe if you put pressure on top of their snout, so thank you. I like watching your videos, I'm getting some great tips.
Heather L. (9 months ago)
Omg that looks so perfect. I thought you were going to butcher it when you took a trimmer to the top of the head. I wish I could make my Morkie look that good. Thanks for the video.
Jake Ford (9 months ago)
Now try that on a bundle of quivering energy that makes rapid explosive movements side to side and up-and-down, and you’ll realize why we pay professionals to do it.

She’s rough. Combing even the nose? Using scissors that have sharp points? I’d never let her groom my dog!
Love of Grooming (10 months ago)
All groomers comb the nose. They also use pointy Scissors. The Scissors with the ball tips are for dog owners that are not groomers, it's for saftey. Go look at any other Grooming video and see. I know how to use Scissors, lol. It's like telling your dentist not to use the teeth cleaning instruments in your mouth because they are sharp. A skilled person knows how to handle equipment.

GetHighWithMe (10 months ago)
Can you please make more videos like this I'm going to be cutting my Shih Tzu's hair sooner or later
robin ORear (10 months ago)
I can never understand why people buy long haired dogs and then have them shaved off or clipped like a hedge. Maybe I'm missing something...
Love of Grooming (10 months ago)
Its easier to maintain. Usually people get dogs for their personality, size etc and not for the coat. Shih Tzus hair continuously grows and gets matted and difficult to care for. The dog feels cleaner and can see, walk and be mat free when the coat is shorter. Clipping shorter lasts longer than a longer clip which can save the owner money on grooming fees.
QuixStar /T.V. (11 months ago)
Nice cut
patricia webb (11 months ago)

Kristyl Adams (1 year ago)
TY, new to Shih Tzu...have only groomed my Miniature Schnauzers and Toy Poodle/Pom mix.  Great to have the comb/blade information...I have never used a comb before.  Questions...are you blowing the legs and the rest of the body to dry...I assume you are....and are you just going straight down with the legs...also, what are you doing with the belly and private areas...and are you cleaning up the paw pads with a 40, or ????  TY much.
Kristyl Adams (1 year ago)
Thank you...you bathing and blow drying first?  Here's how I do my Schnauzers...I do the main body and bulk of the hair first..then bathe, blow dry, and then do the furnishings, finish...wasn't sure on this breed...xo
Love of Grooming (1 year ago)
Hi, yes I blow the whole dog dry to get the coat straight. I go straight down the legs. I use a #10 on the groin area. I use a 15 on the pads and scissors on the rectum.

Alicia Morris (1 year ago)
Very cute! I have a shih tzu, she is 9 yrs old and behaves well like this one. I have been cutting her hair for years but it doesn't look this good. But it will do. lol! You just have to teach them from a puppy. That's what I did ours only went to a real groomer like 3 times.

What a little beauty. This well-behaved pup makes it look so easy. I am thinking maybe I could groom my dog

Love of Grooming . Hi, I wouldn't even bother replying to morons like this. I loved this groom and I do believe it's the nicest I've seen on youtube. I tried to recreate it with my own shih tzu but it didn't quite happen for us, lol.

Did you use same comb for the head ?
Love of Grooming (1 year ago)
Yes, I used the same comb on the head.
Lisa Mack Daly (1 year ago)
Great work! I love your brevity and your techniques!
Love of Grooming (1 year ago)
Thank You
Nicholas Hynam (1 year ago)
The head looks fab at the end but if you showed which colour comb attachment you used on the different section would be rather more helpful!
Love of Grooming (1 year ago)
I used a #2 comb attachment on the head.
Ginger Willis (1 year ago)
I see alot of post stating that their dog would not sit still for this or it would be biting. You start off grooming them when they are tiny and they will be well behaved for grooming.

What's the purpose of the scissors with the teeth?
Debra Rowlands (1 year ago)
They are thinning shears.
Love of Grooming (1 year ago)
The purpose is too blend in the hair to make it look natural instead of the blunt look that the scissors make.

your dog is well behave and good job on the grooming and training. my dog hates anything that cuts really terrified of them
Carolyn Smith-Pilling (1 year ago)
Great video thank you. I struggle with clippers on front legs. Any advice please?
Love of Grooming (1 year ago)
Hello, thanks!. Clippering the legs can be a challenge sometimes. Back combing helps. Clip once then backcomb and clip again and repeat. Scissoring after clipping is the best way to achieve even lengths.
Natsumi Sani (1 year ago)
cute but dont u think it being tortured i mean it cuts hair NEAR its eyes and nose
Love of Grooming (1 year ago)
Some can bite but most are friendly, it would depend on the breeding.
Natsumi Sani (1 year ago)
are shih tzus friendly?do they bite?
Natsumi Sani (1 year ago)
Love of Grooming (1 year ago)
Its not torture to cut around the eyes and nose. How else would the hair be cut? It would be torture to leave all that hair and let it grow into the eyes, mouth and nose and get all matted up and crusted with the tear matter that builds up in the corner of the eyes. All dogs with coat need trimming around the eyes and nose. This dog is so good and loves to be groomed. Thanks for watching!
