I was under the impression that smooth dachshunds don't shed. Ours certainly didn't, and we had several over the years.

@Ron - Thank you for your post. We have listed Labrador-Poodles because while some do shed, there are many that are considered non-shedding or low-shedding. The shedding is dependent on whether the dog has the hair traits of the lab, poodle, or both.

For the last 28 years I have had a Cairn in my home. (three different dogs) and none of the three have ever shed. Their hair will come out when you brush them, but not on the furniture and etc.

I have a hard coat Giant Schnauzer. He sheds like crazy!!!! I have given him no shed treatments and his coat is very healthy and shiny, yet he constantly sheds. So not all Schnauzers are non shedding.

not a fair depiction of Cairn terriers. Yes, they shed LESS than many breeds, but to say the do not shed is very misleading. You WILL find some dog hair around the house. I show and breed cairns.

I have a silky terrier and she sheds a lot, could she be part of another breed?

I have Havanese (purebred) and they shed. Don't believe it when you are told they don't. THey are the sweetest dogs and get along with anything and everything too.

I know people who have Labradoodles & Goldendoodles, & some of them shed, but
don't. I think when you are mixing breeds it's

up for grabs which breeds dominant traits
dog will inherit.

If a Labrador retriever-Poodle mix doesn't shed, then please help us understand why our Labra-doodle (wavy hair)sheds a lot, almost regardless of the

This is a good site but would be better if pictures of the various dogs were included along with a brief description of size etc.

We had several Skipperkes as house pets when I was growing up. They require frequent brushing to get the dead undercoat hair, but if you do that, they don't shed.

My friend has a westie and it's my understanding that breed suffers from a lot of allergies. The symptoms usually manifest in their skin with flaking and rashes. The poor guy is always scratching himself and subsequently he sheds a LOT of hair and dander...

Great article... My 10 year old Giant Schnauzer, Maggie, is so wonderful! She doesn't shed at all (it's like human hair with an undercoat) and I have her groomed 3 times a year. I love all dogs, but I will never own one that sheds ever again!
