Today Shih Tzu mix puppy got a puppy cut and no he is acting weird. He isn't acting like a puppy should. He's acting more like a older dog. Is he just p-d off he got so much hair cut off?

How long has it been since his haircut? If it was just today maybe he's only tired from all the excitement.

My dogs act weird after their baths, Perkins especially. He zooms around, while growling. He doesn't attack anyone, or anything like that. Just zooms and growls.

Did you watch the grooming be done? Maybe he has an issue with the people who groom him?

I watched part of the grooming.. Could it be that he's only 4 months old? Is that too young? I'm only trying to get him use to it so he has no problems when he's an adult.

He's tired, thats a lot of stimulation for a young pup. Also a lot of dogs can feel funny, because their is an odd breeze. ;)

I don't think it's too early so long as he has his vaccinations. I think it's best to get dogs used to stuff at an early age.

When I was younger, my friend had a Shih Tzu who acted weird after he got groomed, too. He would run around and rub all over the furniture and couch.
