These breeds are easily identified as having a very short, body fitting coat. They are the easiest breed to groom but needs weekly brushing to help loosen the dead coat since this type of coat sheds all year round.

Grooming is done first with a furminator or stripping knives to remove the dead coat followed by a curry brush used in circular motion. The curry brush can be used whilst bathing as it helps to remove even more dead coat. After the coat is dry you can apply some coat shine to keep the coat
