Short-Haired Dog Breeds


The African Basenji has a smooth, naturally clean coat that is odor-free and only needs to be bathed occasionally. Even basenjis may groom their coats in a manner akin to cats.

German Shorthaired Pointer

A versatile gundog created specifically to point and retrieve waterfowl is the German shorthaired pointer. Weekly brushing and the odd bath make maintaining its coat a snap.

Great Dane

One of the biggest dog breeds, especially in terms of height, is the Great Dane. Its coat will stay lustrous if you brush it once a week with a rubber curry or bristle brush. This breed is an excellent home dog because it is sweet, friendly, and a truly gentle giant.


The greyhound is regarded as the world's fastest breed and is capable of running at speeds of up to 45 mph. Greyhounds are unsurprisingly excellent home dogs.

A Weimaraner requires little upkeep when groomed. If the short, smooth coat becomes soiled, it will benefit from occasional cleaning with a rubber dog brush to remove loose hair.
