Dog Breed: High-Maintenance Dogs Who Need Extra Care

More maintenance is required for some dog breeds than for others. If you're thinking about a working breed, for example, you should be aware that it probably needs more exercise and enrichment than many other dogs. Similar to humans, dogs with long hair typically require more grooming than those with short hair. Additionally, certain dogs' instincts, like their hunting drive, are strongly ingrained, necessitating additional training to keep them under control.

1 - Belgian Malinois

Belgian Malinois

You can tell how intelligent and motivated Belgian Malinois are if you've ever seen one working in obedience school, police work, or search and rescue. However, it needs a unique kind of residence. If they aren't given the chance to use their drive, they may become restless, anxious, mouthy, overexcited, reactive, and generally difficult to manage. The drive and work ethic of this dog are perfect for dog sports.

2 - Border Collie

Border Collie

The Border Collie, also known as a canine Einstein, is driven to work almost obsessively. Anything that crosses his path will be herded, including children, cats, cars, and even an orange bag that has fallen to the ground. He excels at dog sports because of their intelligence and enthusiasm, but if they are underemployed at home, they may start to exhibit compulsive habits like chasing lights and shadows, spinning in circles, and jumping up and down. Prepare yourself to keep him occupied with dog sports, household chores, routine training sessions, and a lot of daily exercise.

3 - Boxer


Boxers have numerous health issues in addition to having a tonne of energy. They belong to the breeds that are most susceptible to cancer. In addition, they are more likely to have allergies, epilepsy, digestive problems, hip dysplasia, thyroid and eye problems, and numerous heart disorders. Boxers can make excellent family dogs, but you should be ready for the risk of high vet costs.

4 - Akita


Yes, these strange-looking puppies are vivacious and fun to be around. But Akita parents should be aware that these puppies enjoy having the upper hand. Early training can help your puppy understand who is in charge. Additionally, this breed has a history of biting both children and other dogs. Early socializing is crucial, much like training. This breed is kept in check by regular exercise.

Australian Shepherd

The Australian Shepherd uses unusually powerful, long-lasting batteries to power its intelligence, attention, and high level of energy. They'll keep you going well past the point where you're ready to call it a day because they are always up for a stroll, a hike, a nice chase, or fetch. The key to maintaining this breed's happiness is consistent vigorous activity as well as originality in the tasks, exercises, and games used to keep them occupied.

6 - Afghan Hound

Afghan Hound

When they see one, people ooh and ahh over this particular canine. Don't they just look magnificent with their gorgeous feathers and smooth coats? In my opinion, this dog requires the most upkeep. There is a reason for the lack of one-walker sightings at all crosswalks. They shed a lot, can be a little grouchy about training, and frequently don't care all that much about other people or dogs.

7 - Puli


The appearance of the Puli is highly striking. Its distinctive double coat develops into strands that resemble dreadlocks. Because of this, the dog's grooming routine is rather involved. This dog isn't for you unless you're willing to invest a lot of effort in keeping the wires clean and separated. It takes work to even bathe a Puli. To avoid mildew growth, the cables must completely dry after baths.

8 - Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Having a dog that follows you every step is perfectly acceptable. Aside from when you have to leave your house. This breed's natural instinct is to be a companion, and it enjoys spending as much time as possible with its owners. They are the ideal match if you are a homebody. They may have separation anxiety if you have a tendency to be gone a lot.

9 - Brussels Griffon

Brussels Griffon

The ultimate Velcro dog, the Brussels Griffon, can be famously tough to housebreak. Brussels might be the ideal dog for you if you want a companion who will follow you everywhere, including the restroom, but they are prone to separation anxiety and function best when their owner spends most of their time at home.

10 - Chow Chow 

Chow Chow

This breed is positively adorable; it's a lion-and-teddy bear hybrid. These canines, however, are frequently independent and stubborn. Cat-like noises, hmm! They truly need someone who can confront their domineering personality and remind them who the pack leader is since they aren't ready to please their people. There is a need for some further instruction as well as lots of patience.
