10 Low Maintenance Dog Breeds for Busy People

Green Curved Line

1. Dachshund

Long-haired Dachshunds will take a lot of work to care for, and wire-haired Dachshunds will need to go to the groomer from time to time.

2. French Bulldog

French Bulldogs are usually clean, unless they are jumping around in mud and puddles. Their short, fine fur doesn't get tangled up, so brushing them is usually quick and easy.

3. Chihuahua

Chihuahuas only need 20 to 30 minutes of exercise each day, which can be spread out over two or three walks. They are fun to take on a walk through a park or around the block. 

4. Greyhound

You might think that Greyhounds are always moving because of how they are used in races. the opposite is true. They aren't very active, but they will be happy to run around in a yard or go for a brisk walk.

5. Cavalier King 

Let's get one thing out of the way: yes, you will have to groom a Cavalier on a daily basis. Their fur gets tangled easily, so you should brush it every day to keep problems from getting worse.

6. Manchester Terrier

The short, smooth hair of a Manchester Terrier only needs to be brushed once a week, and sometimes not even that. This makes them very easy to care for.

7. Basset Hound

A Basset Hound is a good choice if you want a breed that will fit in with your lifestyle. They are happy to take time for themselves.

8. Whippet

People often think that Whippets and Greyhounds are the same dog. Not at all. Whippets are smaller and less powerful than beagles, but they have a lot in common with them, like being easy to take care of.
