This pooch is part of the sporting group, which also means they have high energy levels. As a result, they’ll require at least an hour of physical activity and mental stimulation every day. While they may prefer to be the only dog in the house, they are willing to meet new dogs if they have proper training and socialization from a young age. So, you can try to take them to a dog park once in a while or bring them to doggy daycare.
