Round Dog Bed

We love this bed by Majestic Pets & the dogs love this bed too!  It comes in an array of colors, nice fabric options, it’s well made, & the cover completely zips off so you can wash the liner easily.  The company says not to wash the inside, but we sometimes have to.  We also always wash on hot bc hello, it needs to be disinfected.  However, we dry on Medium heat because when we were drying on hot it ruined the inside of the waterproof liner.  One thing to consider when buying a bed that has crevices & folds is that a lot of puppies like to play with their poop & you can’t see it hidden in those crevices.  On this bed, they can’t get away with hiding any treasures, everything is in plainsight.

Round Doughnut Bed

This plush, round, doughnut bed hugs your puppy & wraps it in comfort.  It has a raised bolster all around it so your pup can prop it’s head & rest comfortably.  It comes in multiple sizes, the smallest is the best size for them when they are a young puppy.

Plush Pad for Soft Crate

The pad that comes with the soft crate is made of this chintzy material that wraps around a styrofoam pad.  The crate is great, but that has got to go.  This pad is thick & comfy & we love their 2 color options, grey & mocha.  If you can, buy 2, because while 1 is dirty, the other can be used.

Elevated Dog Bed

Our dogs run hot so this bed is nice because it is breathable.  It’s a great outdoor option for warm days.  It’s easily washable by a hose.  Over time, it will rust if you wet it often but for the price, you can replace it at that point.  If you find you & your pup love it, you can always upgrade to one made out of aluminum then.

Snuggle Puppy With Heartbeat

This Snuggle Puppy has a plastic heartbeat that you can place in side & turn on that beats like a heart.  It helps new puppies adjust to life away from their mom & littermates & has been known to relieve anxiety when your pup is alone.  If you choose to buy this, you can have it shipped to us & we will let the puppies cuddle with it in the days prior to your pup leaving our home.  There are different modes when turning on the beating heart, our suggestion would be to leave it beating 24/7 & change the batteries every 3 -4 weeks.  You will feel the heartbeat slow its beat when it is time to change the batteries.

SOFT CRATE

This crate has everything you would want in a crate except

The pros:

– It is made of fabric so it can be easily washed.

– The built-in drapes give you the ability to give your pet a more private space inside, therefore, completely eliminating any distractions from the surrounding environment – this helps with training & makes sleeping in it easier.

– There are 4 openings in 3 different positions on the crate – the top, the short side, & 2 on the long sides.

– It is portable – the straps can be easily joined to make a handle and it fits comfortably into the palm of your hand.  It also folds down easily & fits in a bag for you to take with you if you ever need to.

– This is the crate that they have been introduced to here at our home.  They have had it in their pen since they are 5 weeks old.

The cons:

– The size is not adjustable, meaning, you can’t make it smaller by adding an attachment inside.

– The mesh can tear if you eventually find that your pup is scratching at it a lot.

Pet Playpen With Swinging Door

Excellent plastic, portable playpen to make your puppy his/her own little living space.  It’s also a great setup to limit its access while keeping it from finding trouble in your home while you are busy doing other things.  We believe 4 panels is way too small to create an environment where they can sleep, eat, potty, & play.  If you were to choose a pet playpen option, this one is great.   I like that there is a door but we dislike the clip-in joints.  Their original model has a pole that connects 2 panels, which we ourselves favor because it’s easier to break down & build back togehter & we need that sort of thing here.  But for your puppy, this is a great setup.  If you have the space, an 8-panel setup would be ideal because you could set it up with a little bump-out for their potty area.  Take a look at the multiple ways you can shape this when you look at the item.

Pet Playpen With Doggy Door

Shih Tzu play pen for training, living, & sleeping

Portable playpen for your pup with a lockable doggy door so that you can give them the freedom of coming out when you want them to & prevent them from coming out when you don’t.  I like setting up all playpens against a wall & if you’re able to, in a corner with the support of 2 walls.  Rectangular shape is better to better separate areas to eat, sleep, potty, & play.

Human Bed in a Shih Tzu Size

Best Shih Tzu Dog Bed

The splurge your pup is worthy of.  The Tzu-sized rendition of a human bed just for your (spoiled) dog.  Why we love this bed?  It’s ultra hygienic & machine washable, which so many dog beds can’t handle being washed & dried at high temps.  And last we checked, cold water doesn’t kill germs that exist in our environment.  It has a supportive memory foam mattress comfortable enough for YOU to sleep on.  And its sheets are made out of 400TC Egyptian cotton!  You can also get a 2nd & 3rd set in silk for its hypoallergenic properties, helping to calm skin irritations, & reduce knots & frizz while keeping Shih Tzu hair hydrated.  When you get your pup the HOOMAN, it may even like their bed more than yours!  Who knows, maybe you’ll try to take a nap in their HOOMAN & be told to “get down” off their bed!
