Being a medium sized dog, the CQD is suited to city or country living.
Its quiet nature makes him an ideal apartment dweller when properly exercised. About 30 minutes a day should be sufficient.
With such a short coat, grooming needs are minimal. An occasional bath and brushing is all it takes to maintain a healthy look.
Some specimens have sparse hair and skin must be kept clean to remain healthy.
The hair provides little protection from the elements, making him unsuitable for outdoor living.
When going outside in temperatures below freezing, the CQD will require a coat for longer outings.
