Introduction

A Bulldog and a Shih Tzu seem like an unlikely mix but the Bully-Tzu is actually quite a remarkable dog.

These activities will help you and your Bully-Tzu stay happy and entertained every day. So grab that little pup and get ready to have a great time!

One of the best traits of a Bully-Tzu is that they absolutely love their owners. However, one of the worst traits of a Bully-Tzu is that they love their owners a little too much, becoming attached and having anxiety when their owner leaves. Separation issues can lead to destructive behavior and a destructive Bully-Tzu is something you definitely do not want. Rather than leave your Bully-Tzu alone, take them out with you! Your Bully-Tzu will love accompanying you on adventures and you will also have a great time with your best friend. Head out with your Bully-Tzu any day, any time and pick the adventures that fit your budget.
Step
1
Pet store
Many pet stores will welcome you and your Bully-Tzu with open arms, never asking you to leave your dog in the car. Bring your Bully-Tzu right into the store and let them shop too, picking out a new bone or toy that catches their eye. Your dog may even meet a few dog friends at the pet store for future playdates!
Step
2
Meal out
Find a pet-friendly restaurant or cafe nearby and bring your dog out for a nice meal. Many places that offer outdoor seating will love to have you and your Bully-Tzu as patrons, some even offering a doggy menu! Don't forget to give your dog a few table scraps and some nice fresh water (it's always a good idea to travel with a portable dog bowl).
Step
3
Car ride
If you have to go out and run errands and don't want to leave your Bully-Tzu behind, you can still bring them along for the ride providing you keep the car safe. If you need to run into a store sans pup, open the windows slightly to let your dog get fresh air, have a nice bed of blankets so they stay comfortable and only leave them if it is not too hot or extremely cold. Even if you need to leave your pup in the car for a minute, they will still like going for the ride around town with you rather than staying at home.

Activity description
Bully-Tzus are a generally calm breed of dog, being happy and friendly toward people of all ages and other animals too. However, if they are not properly socialized from a young age, they may develop aggressive behaviors especially if they are "protecting" their family. This behavior can easily be curbed by keeping your dog familiar with a wide variety of people and allowing them to be around other, new dogs. Try some of these fun places to meet other dogs and keep your Bully-Tzu a well-adjusted dog. Socialization is easy to do and can be done any time of year, no matter the weather. Making friends is also inexpensive, meaning it is the perfect thing to do with your dog!
Step
1
Dog park
One of the best places to meet dog friends is at your local dog park. Here, your Bully-Tzu will be able to run around freely, playing with any dog they like! With plenty to smell and to play with, the dog park will likely be one of your Bull-Tzu's favorite places. See which dogs your pup gravitates towards and plan to meet them at the dog park again!
Step
2
Walking group
Look for a dog walking group in your area where dog owners can meet up and go for hikes together. Your dog will love walking with other pups and being part of a dog pack. You will also enjoy walking with others who are as obsessed with dogs as you are!
Step
3
Friends with pups
Ask a few of your friends who have pets to bring their dogs over to play. Let the two pups sniff each other while on the leash at first, allowing them to get out any initial snappy behavior. Once the dogs are acquainted, let them loose and watch as they have a great time! Having dog friends over often will be something your Bully-Tzu loves and it will also keep them well trained and socialized.

Activity description
If you are the owner of a Bully-Tzu, you likely know how attached they can be to their family. While you wish you could be with your Bully-Tzu all the time, you likely need to leave your pup occasionally, something your dog probably isn't a big fan of. However, a doggy daycare may be the perfect solution! Facilities that offer doggy daycare are much like childcare centers, taking your pup for a day to play and have fun while you work. You can utilize doggy daycares year round and find one that fits your budget - there are many out there!
Step
1
Find a daycare
Look in your area for a doggy daycare that looks like the perfect fit for your pup. Consider when you would need your dog to go to daycare. Every day? Once a week? Just occasionally? See what different centers offer as far as scheduling, activities set up for the dogs and their price. Once you find the perfect one for your Bully-Tzu, sign them up!
Step
2
First day
On your dog's first day of daycare, make sure they have a good breakfast and are feeling happy and ready to play! When you drop your dog off, alert the center to any health issues or special needs your dog may have. Then, walk your pup into the playroom and take them off the leash! Give your dog a big hug goodbye and sneak out while they run around, excited to see new toys and friends.
Step
3
Daily report
When you pick up your Bully-Tzu, ask the doggy daycare professionals for a report of how your pup did. It is likely that your dog had a great time and will be dying to go back again. Doggy daycare is a far better option for your clingy Bully-Tzu than staying home alone, sad and angry that they can't be with you. Doggy daycare is a necessity for this breed!

Chew Toys

Bully-Tzu's love to chew and finding a durable chew toy that they like is a great activity. Buy a few different toys and put them in front of your dog. See which they like best and then buy a few of that toy to have on hand.

Cuddle Session

Bully-Tzu's do not need a lot of exercise. In fact, they will be happier snuggling you on the couch. Curl up with your dog and a good movie and get in some nice quality time with your dog

Conclusion

A Bully-Tzu is the perfect breed for those who want a low energy, highly lovable dog. While they won't like it when you go away, there is plenty to keep your dog occupied in your absence as you can see from these great activities. Take your dog out for an adventure, find a few friends for them to play with and consider a doggy daycare so they never need to be alone! You'll have a happy Bully-Tzu on your hands when you try out these activities!
