NorthViewShihTzus.com is the official website for our Shih Tzu breeding program. We are not a puppy mill. We are not a broker. We do not deal with pet stores. We only offer Shih Tzu puppies that have been raised here in our home by us using our own AKC registered Shih Tzus.
We are located in Central Kentucky, between Lousville and Bowling Green, and about two or so hours north of Nashville, TN. There’s no reason for concern if you don’t live near us, we have options for delivering a puppy to you (although, we do not cargo ship) People looking for a Shih Tzu breeder in all areas of the United States and Canada have come to us for many years.
Our puppies have found great homes in many states other than Kentucky, such as: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Massachusets, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah, Texas, Washington, Washington DC, and even one in Puerto Rico! Some of our Shih Tzu puppies have even found new homes in Winnipeg, Ontario, and Calgary, Canada. For people looking for a Shih Tzu breeder in New York, the puppy will be shipped in the hands of our VIP shipper, or we sometimes drive them ourselves.
We have been a reputable Shih Tzu breeder for almost 10 years now, and have been a boxer breeder for almost 20 years. We always home-raise our Shih Tzu puppies, meaning that we keep all of the puppies in our kitchen, letting them out eight or more times per day in order to ‘pre crate-train’ your puppy for you. A couple of benefits that result from this very laborious and time-consuming practice are Shih Tzu puppies that understand the idea of ‘going potty’ outside, and not where they eat/sleep, and also a puppy that is very well socialized.
Shih Tzu breeders with thirty or more dogs absolutely cannot do this. A puppy coming from larger breeders most certainly will be raised in a small cage with automatic feeders/water supply, and possibly automatic cleaning. Therefore, this puppy is interacted with only every few days, if not only once a week, and that is only to clean the cage. These puppies are difficult, if not impossible to house train, because they go potty right where they eat and sleep. In addition, they will be extremely untrustworthy of people, and take much longer to socialize than a home-raised puppy. Raising our babies in the house exposes them to the hustle and bustle of a household, as well as a cat, a bunch of other dogs, and even a couple of ferrets!
Good luck in finding your new furry family member. Please feel free to read further in our site, we have taken a lot of time to educate buyers about shipping a puppy, puppy pricing, microchipping, and much more.
