    Name as many single coated breeds as you can. I really prefer single coated breeds and my next dog will likely be single coated (99% a Whippet) and I want to know all of the single coated dogs out there! At some point I really want a large single coated breed to be a bit of a deterrent to strangers when I have my own home with my sister (obviously that's not the only reason). I've been thinking dobe but I worry a little about ssa so I don't know about that.

    Single coated breeds I can think of:

    Dachshund
    Chihuahua
    Dobe
    MinPin
    Weim
    Dane
    Greyhound
    Papillon maybe??

    What am I missing? (Particularly large breeds).

    CKCS
    Papillons
    Catahoula
    Chihuahua
    Pretty much all the hounds

    I mean really the list is nearly endless and extremely varied...

    I'm not looking for anything in particular, just wondering what single coated breeds were out there that I didn't originally think of! It's not a breed for me thread or anything, just curious!

    I did not know flat coats were single coated at all.

    Yep, papillons are single-coated.

    Saxon has the least fur I've ever seen on a dog! His his chest has very short fur and his belly has no fur at all!

    Yeah, most people don't. Including the rescue folks who label anything black, long-haired, and drop-eared a FCR ;)

    It also means they dry in record time, which is handy since they tend to immerse themselves in anything liquid.

    They still contribute their fair share to the shedding tumbleweeds, though. It may be a single coat but it's a dense single coat.

    /me picks another fistful of coat out of her molting Cheeseface...

    Single long coats are pretty much the best coat type ever. So easy.

    At least some GSP have undercoats, although its not mentioned in the (AKC) standard. The breed club hints at it though. "Blowing coat."

    GSP have single coats, though this isn't specified in the UK standard as such!

    Beagles aren't single-coated, they're described as having an undercoat in everything I've ever read. Plus they shed like crazy.

    ETA: "The Beagle’s double coat is of medium length, dense, and weather-resistant to the point of being waterproof. In its hunting pursuits, that hard outercoat serves as body armor as it rambles through brambles and brush in pursuit of quarry, while its soft undercoat offers insulation against the cold." from dogchannel.com

    AKC Standard:
    Coat
    A close, hard, hound coat of medium length. Defects--A short, thin coat, or of a soft quality.

    I thought being single coated was a defining characteristic of a hound coat. Clearly, we need pictures of beagles and GSPs!
