Always consider your dog’s personality and comfort zone when choosing activities.
For your dog’s safety and the comfort of others, always keep your dog on a leash.
Make sure you give your dog a potty break opportunity before taking them into shops, theatres, etc… other dogs may have been inconsiderate and marked in these areas, so keep a close eye on your dog.
It’s Ok to say no to offered treats if your dog has had more than normal. If you go into several shops and each one offers a treat, it may be more than your dog’s tummy is used to. Simply say, “Thanks but he/she has had several treats already today.”
Pay attention to your dog. If they appear to become anxious or overwhelmed, it may be time to take a break away from crowds or new activities.
