7 Dog Breeds That Require Little Grooming

#4 – German Shorthaired Pointer

The German Shorthaired Pointer is a medium-sized hunting breed that is still widely used for this task today. Because of this, they are very active dogs that need a lot of exercise. They are social, friendly, and eager to please, making them great companions for active families. As their name suggests, they have short coats that require very little grooming. They are heavy shedders, however, so brushing is recommended.

#5 – Great Dane

The Great Dane is one of the largest breeds of dogs, reaching upwards of 180lbs. They were bred first as hunting dogs and then as guardians, but today they are most often found napping on their human’s couch. They are very friendly and clownish and their short coats need little maintenance outside of weekly brushing.

#6 – Chihuahua

There are two variations of Chihuahua, a smooth and rough coat. The smooth-coated dogs are the easier to groom, as they have short, tight coats rather than long, flowing hair. Smooth coats require just occasional brushing. Despite their size, they are excellent watch dogs. Although they will generally not protect their owners, they will alert to someone approaching their home. Known for being sassy, the breed is also quite charming and playful with its family.

#7 – Boston Terrier

Boston Terriers are sturdy, social dogs that are known for being the “class clowns” of the dog world. They are friendly dogs that are eager to greet friends, family, and strangers alike. Owners of Boston Terriers often comment on how amusing their dogs are, because of their playfulness and intelligence. With their short, thin coats, the breed requires very little grooming maintenance.
