Super super easy. They dont' have to be clipped like maltese or poodles. Most people trim up the feet some just to keep it clean looking and give them better traction. It's not required (they actually show them in some countries without trimming the feet) but I think it makes them look better. It's super easy. Just cut the excess fur off the side of the feet and between the pads. Run a comb through their ears a few times a week and run a brush through their coat and you're good to go. I rarely ever groom mine, wquite honestly. I do a foot trim once a month and brush maybe twice a month. I should probably brush more but my dogs just don't ever mat.
