Dogs with a short coat can be easier to maintain than breeds with long, flowing coats. Less coat means less time spent sweeping up and more time to enjoy your dog. Pests like fleas and ticks also are easier to spot on short-coated dogs, and short coats require only occasional brushing. Short-haired dogs don’t need the extensive grooming and trimming necessary to maintain longer coats.
Popular short-haired dog breeds include the Boston Terrier, Boxer, Chihuahua, Dalmatian, Pointer, and Weimaraner.
