Care

Exercise

It is an indoor dog, so it does not require much of outdoor activities. Take them for daily leash walk and let them play games like fetching in a fenced area. Also, give them enough toys to stay busy within the apartment.

Grooming

Brush its coat regularly to prevent tangling and mats. It requires bathing every week to clean up its dirt and use conditioning oil to remove mats softly. Check its ears weekly and consult a vet if they have a bad odor. Also, brush its teeth two to three times a week to prevent periodontal disease.

Health Problems

It is a healthy breed and has no significant health issues, but can be prone to some of the health conditions like hip and joint dysplasia, patellar luxation, cataracts and progressive retinal atrophy.

Training

The dog has the ability to learn quickly and respond well to commands. They can be aggressive while teaching that can have an adverse side effect on docile and easygoing dogs. Use calm and positive methods while training and avoid harsh tones. Reward basis training works best for these type of dogs.

Feeding

Provide the dog with ½ to 1 cup of high-quality dry dog food split into at least two meals a day. Do not leave the food near him for an extended period as it can encourage the pet to eat all the time. Also, give them treats and cookies sometimes to bring a change in their diet.
