The part which needs focus on grooming is the the beard so you need to comb and clean it every single day so that he you would be able to keep his hygiene intact.

In addition, you need to check regularly on his eyes and ears. The corner of their eyes can attract debris which can cause bacteria buildup so you need to remove it carefully.
