The good news is that Shiba Inus are not extremely energetic dogs.
My Siberian Husky leaves my Shiba Inu in the dust in terms of daily energy.
However, Shiba Inus are easily bored.
They need a fair amount of both physical and mental stimulation every day or they will get frustrated and will likely become destructive or aggressive.
One easy way to exercise your Shiba is to make him work for all of his food.
My Shiba Inu also really enjoys exploration.
He fancies himself to be a great lizard hunter and has great fun pouncing on bushes to flush out those fierce, pesky reptiles. He enjoys smelling social markers (urine) left by dogs, cats, and other animals; and has a fun time staring at the goats that sometimes visit our neighborhood to clear out dried vegetation.
Daily walks are a must for a Shiba Inu.
