Life's a game. And the shih tzu loves playing it with you!  

Whether the day's activity is splashing in the pool on a hot summer afternoon or playing an indoor game of hide-and-go-seek, the shih tzu is up for doing just anything.

Don't let their diminutive size and good looks fool you into thinking they're only lap warmers and show dogs. These little lions like to go for walks and if they don't get them, they're likely to spend time chasing their tails around the house  They also successfully compete in the challenging sport of agility, where dogs navigate a timed obstacle course with their owners' help.  

No matter what game you chose to play, as long as you enjoy it your shih tzu probably will, too.
