What dogs don’t shed?

Not all dogs shed, and the reasons for this can vary depending on the breed. Some dogs have coats that do not shed or shed very little, due to their breed characteristics or genetics.

What dogs don’t shed?

  • Afghan hounds
  • Boxers
  • Chihuahuas
  • Dalmatians
  • Portuguese Water Dog
  • Airedale Terrier
  • Curly-Coated Retrievers
  • Dachshund
  • Greyhound
  • Great Done
  • Poodle
  • Bichon Frisé
  • Pumi
  • Bedlington

One reason that some dogs don’t shed is that they have a single-layer coat, such as Afghan Hounds, Boxers, Chihuahuas, Dalmatians or Great Done along with others. The hair does not grow and shed in the same way that it does in double-layer coats.

Another reason that some dogs don’t shed is that they have hair instead of fur. Dogs with hair like poodles and bichon frisé have a different coat type than dogs with fur. Hair grows continuously and does not shed in the same way that fur does. This means that dogs with hair may not shed as much or may not shed at all.

Some dogs also have curly or wavy coats, which can make them less likely to shed such as Poodle, Portuguese Water Dog, Bichon Frise, Airedale Terrier, Pumi, Curly-Coated Retrievers or Bedlington along with others. Curly or wavy coats tend to trap shed hair, preventing it from falling out and spreading around the house.

In addition to these factors, some dogs may not shed as much due to their size or breed type. For example, small dogs tend to shed less than larger breeds, and some breeds, such as Greyhounds, are known to shed very little.

Anyways, I know dog hair everywhere is annoying, but having a love of a dog is worth it despite their shedding.
