I have a 16 week old male Shih Tzu named Snarf in an apartment in Maryland.
He is a wonderfull puppy. I used to take him to work (painting) everyday
so he was handled by someone new every day. Now he is ultra-friendly.
Does anyone know if there is an FAQ file for this breed? Could you
Email it to me or tell me where to find it?
Snarf's hair is getting pretty long. Could someone recommend a could
(and inexpensive) groomer in the washington D.C. area?
One of the biggest problems I have with Snarf is that when I take him hiking\
he routinely comes home with upwards of ten ticks. On such a long haired
pooch, it is a nightmare to find them and get them off. My wife is allergic
to flea/tick collars. Does anyone know of a good alternative way to keep ticks
from climbing onboard short of shaving?
I'd appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance,
