Dog show spreads pedigree grooming across Asia

Pedigree Shih Tzu dogs were among the many breeds showcased at the Asia-Pacific dog show in Manila this weekend.

The three-day event, organised by the Philippine Canine Club, is held to promote the culture of pedigree grooming across Asia and moves to a different city each year.

Aspiring canine members of the Philippine club require proven lineage stretching back at least four generations.
