The right amount of activity on a daily basis is sufficient through interactive play sessions inside a fenced yard, or a short walk. The owner may also offer to chew toys to keep them busy.
Brush it with a proper soft-bristle at least 3-4 times per week to keep its coat smooth and clean. Although daily bath is not needed, their nails, teeth, and ears should be kept clean.
