I will start the drawing day by filling a request I received over a week ago. I was asked if I could do a tutorial that shows you "how to draw a Shih Tzu, step by step". These dogs are one of the more popular dogs across the globe. If you are a Shih Tzu owner, you already know that this dogs style is very versatile. Some like their pooches to have a short cut, while others like their breed to have a long finely groomed coat that is tied at the head with a bow. This is another small breed dog, and like other small breeds, the Shih Tzu is known for being absolutely adorable, fun, trustworthy, and extremely loyal. Now when I say loyal, I mean loyal. I remember trying to take my aunts dog in the car to wait for for, and this little dog didn't even budge from the bottom of the stairs until her owner came walking down. You can offer the dog treats, food, or even gold, and will not come to for nothing. The name of this breed is pronounced like “sheet-sue”. They originated from China, and it is there they received their unique name. Even though these dogs are small, they are very sturdy, and strong. One thing is for certain, if you don't distinguish pack leadership with your Shih Tzu, you will find yourself in a heap of frustrating behavior from your dog. These small breeds will quickly think they are the boss of humans, and when this happens, that is when you have an unstable and uncontrollable pet. They will growl, snap, over guard, and even bite. It is very important that you lay down the rules with this dog because if you don't you will have so many problems in the future. Another thing, be stern when it comes to housebreaking the Shih Tzu, and also be patient. They can be very difficult to train. If you play your cards right though, you will end up with a wonderful little pet that will love you for the rest of it's life. I hope you enjoy this tutorial on “how to draw a Shih Tzu”, step by step. I will be back with a lot more drawing fun so stay tuned in okay guys, Peace people, and happy drawing!
