Best of Breed at Del Monte

Great weekend at Del Monte Kennel Club dog show, in Carmel California. Our young champion prospect puppy Chenille Hearts on Fire "Jema" wins back to back Best of Breed. This is a splendid win for her at such a young age of 7 months old. She has never shown on grass, but she did a great job. Jema handles her self with ease and grace, very sound with outstanding temperament. Co Owner handled by Stacy Bingham this weekend shown under Judges Mr Kenneth M McDermott and Mrs Paula Hartinger. We want to thank our judges for awarding Jema with two Best of Breed from the classes. It was really a beautiful venue, we like to thank Warren Cook for taking a great candid photo of Jema ringside.

Woofstock 2010 in Vallejo CA

Wonderful time showing Chenille's newest champion prospect "Jema" at Woofstock in Vallejo California. Contra Costa Kennel Club dog show venue was one of my favorites, themed 60's with all the tie dyed clothing and decorations. Sixties music playing in the background, Chenille's Hearts on Fire "Jema" enter her first show ring. Jema just turned 6 months old, meeting required age to start showing AKC events. Venturing out in the Bred By Exhibitor class, as we hoped she would present herself wonderfully. Jema being a puppy handled exceptionally well, proud of herself and thinking everyone was there to see her. Yes, she does have that "it's all about me attitude" with the adorable shih tzu puppy wonderment. Glad that we did capture Jema's first dog show on video, "Woofstock Video" on our You Tube Chenille Channel. We love sharing our special moments with all her supporting friends. Joyous to start out Chenille Hearts on Fire "Jema" championship with a 4 point major win, showing under Judge Mrs Doris Cozart. Watch for Jema's new updates as we continue on the road to her AKC Championship. For the latest follow us on our Facebook Fan Page or give us a Tweet on Twitter.

Shih Tzu Grooming PSTC Video

Shih Tzu Grooming Video Click on the link for the Video

Shih Tzu grooming video produced by Philippine Shih Tzu Club. This video is a great learning tool for proper care of a shih tzu coat. Shih tzu have a long silky double coat, that needs to be clean and groomed. In this video training a shih tzu puppies to be groomed and clipped with scissors, I like to use a cordless beard trimmer for the bottom of paws and anal area. Making sure not to clip any soft tissue of the puppy. We are always sharing new information for our Shih Tzu friends and family.

This video was brought to you by Totaly Shih Tzu & Wendell Sabile from Orion Shih Tzu thanks so much for sharing this wonderful training video.
