3. Not Leaving the House
No plans or desire to leave? Then stick around the house! Shih Tzus love to have a friend around, so there will never be judgment there. Relax with your doggy pal, eat, watch television, sleep, or do whatever. You do not have to feel obligated to go anywhere. Dogs will certainly do nothing to guilt you into leaving. In fact, your dog will definitely appreciate staying indoors on very hot, cold, or rainy days. Just make sure that you walk your pet so that he or she doesn't have an accident, and make sure that you provide plenty of play time and exercise, even if you choose to do so indoors. You'll always want to exercise your ShihTtzu to keep them happy, healthy, and to help prevent negative behaviors, so getting some form of activityin each day is an absolute must. However, once you've played with your pet, feel free to crash on the couch or even in your bed with your furry friend. They won't judge -- and will find it just as relaxing as you do.
