The Daily Puppy asserts that the basenji, or African barkless dog, is one of the easiest dogs to care for. The dog is hypoallergenic, doesn't shed and bathes itself with its tongue.
The wire-haired fox terrier is another dog that is very easy to take care of. Besides feeding and attention, the main task of the owner is to wash the dog's coat after the pet has spent time in the woods. The Airedale terrier is also easy to tend to and requires hand-stripping only two times a year. West Highland white terriers are another hypoallergenic dog that can easily be cared for. This pet needs baths and fur brushing occasionally.
