Shih Tzu Standards
There are several different standards by which the Shih Tzu are judged around the world. We will only address two on this site but in any
standard the Shih Tzu is a coated breed, boasting a long, dense,
luxurious flowing double coat. but a beautifully appointed Shih Tzu
is not just coat. The real beauty begins with a sound bone structure.
All the glorious coat, skillful grooming, and pampering in the world
cannot develop a sound, sturdy animal without the foundation of the
dog, its bone structure and placement, meeting the standard of the breed.
