Things You Can Do with Your Shih Tzu Right Now that Involve Leaving the House
1. Go for a walk on a completely new route.
Choose a destination and see if you can arrive there by different roads than you’d normally take. Or visit a neighborhood that you’ve always wanted to live in and walk there as if you’ve already moved in! Just be sure that the planned route has safe sidewalks.
2. Bring your Shih Tzu to a dog friendly store.
Chances are there are some stores that you didn’t know allowed dogs. Many do, the only rule is that they must be placed in the shopping cart, in a carrier (a sling is a great choice for this) or in a canine stroller. It’s a great thing to do with your Shih Tzu for either actually shopping or window shopping. As of this writing, dog friendly stores include:
Anthropologie, Bass Pro Shops, Bebe, Bloomingdale’s, Crate and Barrel, Foot Locker, Free People, Gap, Home Goods, JoAnn Fabrics, Lowe’s, Lush Cosmetics, Macy’s, Marshalls, Michael’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Old Navy, PetCo, PetSmart, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Saks Fifth Avenue, Saturn car dealerships, TJ Maxx, Tractor Supply Co. and Urban Outfitters.
