The harsh, wiry coat  needs extensive grooming. Some trimming and stripping is required, but little skill is needed. This breed is an average shedder.

Health Issues:

Prone to bloat. It is wise to feed them 2 or 3 small meals a day rather then one big one. Avoid vigorous exercise right after the dog has eaten a big meal. To minimize the risk of your Deerhound developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a Scottish Deerhound dog from a reputable breeder.
