70. Afghan Hound
Afghan Hounds are probably one of the most recognizable breeds of dog around, with their thick, silky, flowing coats. Their coats aren’t just for show, though, as they once served as protection from the harsh climate in mountainous regions where they originally were from. These beautiful dogs need several hours per week of brushing to keep their hair free of mats and tangles and remove any debris. Regular shampooing and conditioning are also needed. Since they are Afghans, are sighthounds, and are excellent jumpers, they require lots of room to run around and will need a high fence so they can’t escape when exercising. Walking on a leash as exercise a few times a week would not suffice.
