They love to be included and be by their people, so they should never be left alone for too long.
Activities for Blue-Tzu Heelers above all else should make them feel included. These dogs love to be with their families and may develop anxiety or bad behaviors if left alone too long. Owners should work closely with them on impulse control through learning tricks, obedience or agility challenges, and changing up their routine. They are fun-loving dogs, but can become overly protective if not socialized to dogs and people early on, so taking them to dog parks and teach them how to properly interact with other people. They love to be by your side and are perfect companions for people who work from home or can take a dog to the office
