How soon can I bathe my Shih Tzu or Shih-Poo puppie?
I’d prefer that you wait for at least one to two days after picking up the new puppie. That way they’ve adjusted somewhat to their new environment. Remember, this young puppie is trying real hard to trust you and bond with you, so timing is everything. Waiting for a bath should not be a priority during the pups the first week with you.
