The most popular book on Amazon specifically about the Shih Tzu breed is The Shih Tzu - by Deborah Wood.
Here are a few of the reader reviews:
I really liked the way this book was written and put together. It did indeed cover things specific to Shih Tzus and was not a generic dog book. The DVD was a really nice bonus. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about buying a Shih Tzu, or people like myself and wife who have had them for over 12 years. We currently have 3, and this book just reignites your passion for these fun little dogs.
We recently got a Shih Tzu puppy and wanted to learn all we could about the breed. This book is great. I had bought another book also, but this one is the most informative. It also came with a training video which is very helpful.
I'm planning to get one of these precious little dogs next summer, but I've already begun my research by reading books about the breed. I've not read all that I plan to yet, but so far this book is the best I've read. The chapters on grooming, training and behavior were especially relevant and informative for a new shih tzu owner, as these are the topics I feel are of critical importance. I'm sure I will refer to this book again and again in the future. If you can only get one book on the shih tzu, this is the one you should buy!
Just bought it for my wife along with other title about Shih Tzu breed. This is the best and she likes it very much. It's well written and cover all aspects needed Shih Tzu owners. It has lost of beautiful pictures (prob more than 100 pics) of the breeds that match the subject. ie. on Grooming, etc. Highly recommended book.
This is a quality book both physically and information-wise. It has sure been a big help in learning about the Shih Tzu and helping me with my new puppy, Roxy.
