When a mommy and daddy Silky Terrier and Shih Tzu love each other very much…. A Silky Tzu is born! And, with the personality traits of both the Terrier and Tzu, you will love how well-rounded and lovable this breed is. Whether you live in a high-rise concrete jungle or you have sprawling fields at your disposal, your Silky Tzu will be effortless to care for all the same. You can also rest assured that whether you have all the time in the world or only a few hours to spare, your Silky Tzu will enjoy your company – lots of it or not much at all. However, if you want to spoil your furry friend, here’s how.
Silky Tzus are dogs you need to socialize from an early age. If you try to introduce them to other dogs when they are a little older, it can take some time to get them to warm to them – if they even will at all! That’s why as soon as you bring your Silky Tzu home for the first time, you need to put a few feelers out to get your friends involved in doggy dates. This all-weather activity is one that can benefit both you and your dog, while being free and easy to complete. All you need to do is arrange a regular one-hour session every week, and have a leash and toy at the ready.
Grooming may not seem like a fun game for your Silky Tzu, but this all-weather activity for dogs is one that can bring you both closer together while saving you money. Grooming is something your Silky Tzu is going to need often, and if you can save money by doing it yourself, why wouldn’t you? It’s expensive in the beginning when you outlay money for hair clippers, a faucet sprayer, cotton wads, dog towel, and shampoo, but once you do that, it’s a standard activity you can set time aside for every six weeks or so. When you carry it out from a young age, your Silky Tzu may also grow to love it.
If you want your dog to be the life of the party, or you want to see them learn new skills, then try to teach your Silky Tzu how to shake hands. Silky Tzus are intelligent dogs, so you are likely to find it’s not overly difficult to teach them, and it also only takes five minutes at a time. You can teach them how to shake hands in any weather, spend nothing at all except for handing out treats, and know that it’s stimulating them mentally every time you spend that crucial one-on-one time with them. Teach your Silky Tzu how to shake hands today!
Silky Tzus do not have a significant need for physical activity. You don’t have to take them for mountain hikes, track running, or sprints. Your Silky Tzu will be happy to leave the house once a day with you for a leisurely stroll around your local park or block. Half an hour or an hour is ample to not only give them some new scenery to view but will keep them fit and healthy too.
If you want a fun activity you can do inside and out, then fetch is it. All you need is a fetch toy and you can have your furry friend running backward and forward, bringing it to you and wearing themselves out. You can play it in your hallway, another spacious area of your home, or in a secure yard.
Silky Tzus are very low maintenance dogs that bring so much pawsitivity and joy into your life. They are energetic, fun-loving, and are very intelligent as well. What’s more, they don’t need a lot of your time. Spend half an hour or an hour every day playing fun games with them and they will be more than happy. It might be time to welcome a new Silky Tzu into your home.
