    Are these dogs good if you have allergies since they are half shitzu?

      Hi Elizabeth,
      For those with allergies, it is recommended to have a hypoallergenic breed. Since the Shiranian is hypoallergenic, it is suitable for a household in which people are allergic to dogs.

    Hello, I have a shiranian & I want to have a litter but it’s so hard to find a dog the same breed as him, what would happen if I mixed him with a miniature poodle?

    I’m trying to train my pup to sit and stuff like that. I am her third owner and she’s not even a year old. Her other owners wouldn’t work with her. I’m only 19. How do I train her to sit without giving her a treat everytime

      Hi Morgan,
      Most people use bits of food like a tasty dog biscuit or dried liver for treats. Lavish praise or a playing session with her favorite toy can be used as a training reward. If you praise your dog in a low, happy voice, she will learn that it is a good thing. Now, to teach your pup to sit, use the following technique:
      • Squatting down next to your pup, place a hand on her chest, keeping the other hand behind her rear legs.
      • Say the “sit” command and apply slight upward pressure to her chest and against her rear knees, guiding her into the proper sitting position.
      • Reward her with lots of treats or praises once she is in the sitting position.

    Hi, Im from the Philippines. Is it okay to bathe our Shiranian everyday? Or how often should we bathe our little pup…thanks.

      Hi there,
      While bathing your dog keeps its coat clean and shiny, it should not be more often than once a month for a dog with normal, healthy skin. Use a vet-recommended dog shampoo, or your Shiranian’s skin will become dry and be prone to dandruff.

    I’ve had my little guy since he was 7 weeks old, he is now 2 years old. He is OVERLY loveable with us, and anyone who is in constant contact with him, but he appears vicious when unusual or uncommon people come in the house, even if they’ve been there a few times before, he will attack as a vicious dog. What can I do to break him of that?

      Hi Susan,
      Speak to an experienced dog behaviorist to get instructions on stopping your dog’s aggression towards guests. Give him a safe space where he can go and remain calm when there are visitors in your house. You may have some treats and a leash placed by the door. It will help you in taking him to the safe place when a stranger shows up unexpectedly. Put your Shiranian in another room, or his crate with a Kong stuffed with treats. You may play some soothing music, as there are specialized CDs available for calming a dog’s nervous system.

    How do I get my little puppy to stop biting my toes and fingers?

    • Carmen Morrison says:

      Give a high pitched yelp as its litter mates would take your fingers or lift your feet so they cant be nipped. You could also distract your puppy with a gentle game of tug. These dogs love to chew and love toys so Iwould advise a range of puppy toys that stimulate their mind as well as body.

    My puppy was training really well but now she has started to pee on blankets and pillows if they are on the floor. Im not sure how to train her or get her to stop doing this in a positive way
