Great info, thanks. Seeking for a dog that won't shed as much. I'm one who doesn't care for dog hair in the house but love animals.

I had a wonderful Shih Tzu for 15 years and he rarely shed anything but a single tail hair. Certainly less than most humans. Couldn't have b een a better dog.

There's the puli on there, but if you are looking for a larger dog then there is the Komondor (a large white herding dog) that looks very similar to a giant mop, with more energy.

Whichever dog you guys choose, I'm glad you are doing research, :). Keep asking question, and best of luck.

Old English Sheepdog's do not shed. Our first, Maggie, was 16 when we put her to sleep. Our second, Lacey, was 13 1/2. Now we have Lily, who is six months old. None of them shed; however, you have to brush them almost daily and give them a good cut about 3 times a year. They are wonderful dogs, very gentle and playful.

Oops, you forgot Lhasa Apsos! They don't shed either--although they need grooming.

Italian Greyhounds are one of the best house
They are small, and have a smooth coat that doesn't need grooming or bathing. You can wipe them off with a damp washcloth! No doggy odor, and very friendly, intelligent, loving, inquisitive dogs with a satin-like coat. The ideal dog!!

Bouviers de Flandres are a large breed that don't shed. However, they must be groomed regularly by a groomer who knows Bouvs, or they wind up looking like a Giant Schnauzer.

We have two Brussels, one Poodlething and two schnauzers in our house none of which shed- then we crate the others because they do - in order of how much- the highest shedders are the two Australian cattledogs followed by the Catahoula and Doberman with minimal shedding. Other breeds I have loved having but who have been hugh shedders are German Shepherds, Welsh Corgis and Collies.

Lhasa Apso is my non-shedding breed of choice. And you didn't list the Shih-tzu either. ???

Samoyeds shed only once or twice a year. The rest of the time, a flick of the brush every few days removes any loose hair. We have brugundy coloured carpets and cupholstery - no problems. And you can spin the wool into beautiful yarn!

Good Advice. It should be mentioned that shedding in and of itself makes for a high maintenance dog. Some hairs are almost impossible to get out of upholstery/rugs. Very time consuming. A good/well trained dog makes it all our house anyway. Our Shih-Tzu/Poodle cross does not shed. Jo Ann

I have An Australian Labradoodle and it is so nice that she doesn't shed! But, there is the grooming and clipping of the fur and the cost of that every month.As you say they are high maintenance. But she is worth every penny! I wanted her for the fact that she didn't shed hair all over the place like the other breeds do.I feel that your article is very helpful to those looking for a non-shedding breed.
