Ideal Environment

This is a very energetic dog, and they need at least one hour of daily activity and exercise to ensure they stay healthy. They are prone to get gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV), or bloat, so it is advised that they should not eat within an hour of exercise. Some of the activities which they like are running in the yard, playing fetch and also going for a walk. They can also be taken to the dog park where they can play freely. The owners must understand that if Nekita does not get the required amount of daily exercise and activity, it can lead to behavioral issues such as boredom and aggression.
