Understanding the Shih Tzu: A Brief Dive into Their Royal Lineage

The Shih Tzu, a breed with a history as ornate as their coats, traces its roots back to ancient China. Revered as the esteemed companions of emperors, these dogs were synonymous with opulence and luxury, a trait they carry with pride to this day. With their expressive eyes and a coat that's a tapestry of color and texture, each Shih Tzu is a living testament to their imperial past.

The Riverview Grooming Experience: A Throne for Every Shih Tzu

Stepping into Riverview Grooming, your Shih Tzu isn’t just another appointment on the books; they enter a realm where their every need, from the tip of their nose to the end of their tail, is met with expert care and affection. Our grooming professionals are not just skilled artisans but avid admirers of the Shih Tzu breed, understanding the nuances that make each unique.

Here, each grooming session is an experience. It starts with a gentle but thorough assessment of your pet's coat, skin, and overall well-being. This isn't a mere precursor to a haircut; it's the foundation of a comprehensive grooming strategy tailored to your Shih Tzu's specific needs. Our groomers use premium products that cater to the delicate nature of their skin and coat, ensuring a deep yet gentle clean that leaves them shining and healthy.

Then comes the styling. Whether maintaining the traditional lion cut, a practical puppy cut, or something uniquely tailored, our team works with precision and care. We pay special attention to the areas that Shih Tzus needs most, like their sensitive eyes and ears, ensuring they are clean and comfortable.

But it's not all about looks. The Riverview experience includes a relaxing atmosphere where your Shih Tzu can feel at ease. Soft music, a calm environment, and a steady, loving hand are part of the package, ensuring your pet’s grooming session is as enjoyable as beneficial.

As they leave our salon, not only do they look like royalty, but they also feel it. And when they trot out, head held high and tail wagging, they've had more than just a grooming session; they've had a Riverview experience.
