Short-Haired Dog Breeds

Many short-haired dog breeds are a great choice for busy families, as they may not require professional grooming on a regular basis like long-haired breeds. Gently brushing their coat once or twice a week is usually sufficient to remove loose hair and minimize shedding. Some short-haired dogs are even hypoallergenic, making them a great choice for people with allergies. Browse our list of short-haired dog breeds below to find the perfect match for your lifestyle.
