As an ongoing commitment to you, we are spontaneously posting new question content to educate our loyal AceOfPups customers.
I can’t get sleep with my new Shih Tzu pup in bed with me, how do I make the puppie go to sleep?
Sleeping with your Shih Tzu
There are so so many positions the Shih Tzu prefers once in bed with their owners…just like us they toss and turn frequently.
Getting them to “respect” your space requires a firm no nonsense voice and they will “get it”.
Mine get to alternate who sleeps with me, so I get to see what works with one might not work with the other.
Some require turning away from them and they seem to understand mama is not going to pet or play right now and then go and find their space and sleep thru the night. Others I have to say NO, now go lay down! They don’t like mama’s firm voice and do just that…lay down.
Shih Tzu will grab any moment they can to want to pounce all over you….unless you call the shots.
So do yourself a favor and show them your ALPHA side. They’ll still love you in the morning!
