Our Tzus LOVE gnawing on these antlers. Having these around keeps them from chewing the legs of our kitchen table or other no-nos! ☺ Buy a small bag to try them out or a whole pound to have several for every room!  You can't ever have enough deer antlers!

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND buying a tube of Nutri-Cal to have on hand when you travel with your new puppy & get them home.  This helps to prevent hypoglycemia & keeps their blood sugar level from dropping when stressed from a new environment.

Nice set of regular & thinning scissors-great for trimming Shih Tzu faces

Rolled brown leather  (choose size)

Large waterproof pad (we love putting this larger size inside exercise pen) Buy TWO-one to wash & one to use!

Our puppies LOVE these squeeky balls!

XS size is my favorite for our Shih Tzu puppies

We love these rolled leather collars for our Shih Tzu!  It helps prevent their long coats from getting tangles like the flat collars cause.  Bubble & our smaller 6-7lb Shih Tzu girls need the small size that is the 9-10", but Belle and our other Standard size Shih Tzus need the medium size which is 14" long.

This is a MUST if you accidently clip toenails too short!

Mini dehumidifier-We use this in the Summer in our puppy room.

These Booda Rope toys are our FAVORITE!  They are great for training your new puppy to NOT CHEW YOUR FINGERS.  Every time you pick up your puppy have one of these rope toys in your hand.  When the pup tries to chew on your fingers say "No, but THIS is a good puppy" while sticking the rope in their mouth instead.  You want to train them by saying NO to fingers, toes, shoes or anything you don't want them chewing on, but always offer something as an alternative saying "But THIS is a good puppy instead!" 

Weighing your dog monthly is wise to track their health.

Keep your puppy warm on chilly days with these adorable puppy jackets!

Sunny & I had so much fun setting up this new page for you all!  We added our comments about WHY we love these products and tried to group them in a way that made sense.  We carefully chose our very favorite things—most of them we use with our own Shih Tzus!  Not only will this help you in getting ready for your new puppy, but you can return here as many times as you'd like to re-order your OWN favorite things.
