Sarah Albuquerque, New Mexico 12/7/2012 1:16:43 PM This article really upsets me because it is giving people false information and causes me to lose my trust in a site that is supposed to give people honest information on dog car. There is NO such thing as a non-shedding dog. Some dogs shed less, and some dogs hair types cause less dander to be affixed to the hair, but they STILL SHED. Shedding is a natural occurrence (even in short-haired and hairless dogs) that causes the dead hair to fall off, and allows new, healthy hair to grow in. If the dead hair does not fall off, it can lead to infection of the hair follicles and can lead to overall decay of the dog's coat. There is no naturally occurring dog breed that is a non-shedding. If there were, those dogs would have to be constantly groomed to get rid of the dead hair, thus more maintenance for the owner (and probably more expenses for grooming).
