Pure Paws Product Recommendations.

Wet the coat. Then apply the Pure Paws Star Line Brightening Shampoo diluted 1 part shampoo to 8 parts water. Pour the mixture over the dog evenly and begin working into the coat. Then rinse the shampoo. On coats that have white in them we recommend doing an extra bath using the No Rinse Shampoo as a second bath to help bring the white out on the coats. The final bath should be with the Pure Paws
 Reconstructing Shampoo diluted 1 part shampoo to 8 parts water. Make sure to rinse the shampoo out and not leave behind any soapy residue.

There are several different ways to condition the Shih Tzu coat as well as different conditioners to use based on the quantity of the coat. If your dog’s coat is very thick condition using the following method: In a tub of water dilute the Pure Paws Ultra Silk Cream (1 to 2 tables spoons of Pure Paws Ultra Silk Cream Conditioner to the tub of water) Make sure when the Silk Cream is diluted that the mixture does not contain chunks of conditioner. Put the dog in the tub and pour the conditioner over the coat. The idea is to allow the conditioner to penetrate the coat. Let the dog sit for 2-3 minutes then rinse the coat. If the coat is not to dense the second option would be to condition the coat with the Pure Paws Reconstructing Conditioner. Dilute the 
Reconstructing Conditioner 1 part conditioner to 8 parts water. Place the mixture into a liquid applicator. Distribute the conditioner through out the coat assuring that the mixture is evenly distributed through the coat. Let the mixture sit 2-3 minutes then rinse.

Top Knot
While the coat is still damp use the Pure Paws Amplify Volumizing Spray Gel sprayed lightly on the top knot area. Dry When drying the coat always brush in a downward motion so as not to tangle the coat. Always towel dry first to absorb as much water as possible. 

Depending on the final texture of the coat when dry you can use the Pure Paws Reconstructing Shine Spray for more conditioning when ironing or the Pure Paws Finishing Show Spray if the coat is how you want it.

After bathing and conditioning the coat use the Pure Ultra Clear Light Oil in a sprayer to apply on the surface of the coat. Use a brush to distribute the oil. DO NOT saturate the coat. You can use the Pure Reconstructing Shine Spray at the same time to help distribute the oil evenly. If you wrap the coat use the Pure Paws Reconstructing Shine Conditioning Spray to brush through the coat when checking on the wraps. Only use the oil after the bath.

A good pin brush should be used to brush out the coat without damaging the hair.  Check out #1 All Systems pin brush or Chris Christensen 20 mm pin brush.
