- Walk with purpose.
When walking, do not just wander aimlessly. Walk as if you have to get to a meeting or you will be late for school. Walk fast. When you do this, you will be able to maintain your dog’s focus and attention and his chances of wandering off will be minimized.
Dogs, especially Shih Tzu, can get overly excited about a lot of things. Their enthusiasm will surely look cute but it can be dangerous when you are walking them. You will find yourself in dangerous and awkward situations if you will not put your dog on a leash. That is why leash training is essential for all dogs.
