Boston Terrier

Boston’s smooth coat doesn’t shed a lot and requires minimal grooming. This breed needs weekly brushing with a soft-bristle brush, a rubber grooming mitt, or a hand glove to remove the dead hair. The Boston needs an occasional bath.

Chihuahua

There are two varieties of Chihuahua, the smooth-coat Chihuahua that only needs sporadic brushing and regular baths, and longhaired Chihuahua that needs brushing at least once a week to avoid tangle or mats.

Both varieties require nail trimming regularly.

Greyhound has a short, smooth coat that requires little grooming. This breed only needs regular baths and weekly back rub with a damp cloth or hand glove. Other grooming requirements include regular nail trimming, ear cleaning, and teeth brushing, daily if possible, with toothpaste for dogs.

Italian Greyhound

Italian Greyhound is another easy to groom dog breed.

Because this breed has a short, smooth coat, baths are rarely necessary.

Italian’s Greyhound teeth need regular brushing. This breed also needs weekly brushing.

Miniature Pinscher

Miniature Pinscher’s short hard coat is easy to maintain. Just a weekly soft brush is enough to keep his fur clean and shining. This breed also needs regular nail trimming.

Rat Terrier

Rat Terrier has a short, dense coat that needs little care to be in good condition. A weekly brush with a hound glove will keep the dog fur healthy and glossy. A bath every month is enough.

Vizla

Vizslas have a short, sleek coat with no undercoat, and they don’t need complicated grooming. An occasional brushing is enough to keep them clean. They need a bath with a quality dog soap or shampoo.

To keep their ears healthy, frequently check for dirt or wax, and use an ear-cleaning product to prevent problems. Also, they require regular teeth cleaning with toothpaste for dogs.
