Non-shedding dogs

So your heart loves dogs but your body can’t stand them?  Or maybe you are just a neat freak and hate to see dog hair everywhere.  Here’s a list of some non-shedding dogs.

Due to their non-shedding characteristic, these dogs are considered hypoallergenic, meaning that, if you are allergic to dogs, you have fewer chances of developing any with these ones.

Oh, and one more thing you should know.  “Non-shedding” can be considered somewhat of a misnomer, since all dogs shed at some point, especially during certain seasons.  But these dogs shed so little that one can hardly notice.

Do not miss our posts.

Australian Terrier

The Australian Terrier sheds very little but still require frequent grooms; once a week will do.  Fortunately, they are easy to groom.  Bathe him frequently and trim his nails and he should stay glowing.

Bichon Frise

Bichon Frises have a pretty thick double coat that requires frequent grooming.  These non-shedding dogs are pretty affectionate and loyal.

Maltese Terrier

Maltese Terrier has a nice silky coat.  This coat can hang on the floor if not trimmed.  But to shed it they will not.

Tibetan Terrier

This brushy one requires a lot of grooming.  Interestingly enough, Tibetan Terriers shed very little.

Shih Tzu

The coat of the Shih Tzu grows really fast and needs to be groomed frequently to avoid him dragging it on the floor.

Border Terrier

Border Terrier wiry coat is hypoallergenic, does not shed, and requires little grooming.

Chinese Crested

Both varieties of Chinese Crested sheds minimally.


Our hot dog in a sleek and shiny coat does not shed either.  Grooming requirements for this one are kept to a minimum.

Brussels Griffon

Both rough-coated and smooth-coated shed very little.  Brussels Griffon is to be kept indoors.


All three sizes of poodles can be held at almost zero chance of getting all haired.

West Highland White Terrier

West Highland White Terrier has a thick double coat but is not letting any of that hair go away.


These beautiful and social animals are well suited for little children.  Keep the Havanese indoor; these non-shedding dogs are a delight to have.


The aerodynamic running champion has another advantage:  Greyhound does not shed.

Scottish Terrier

They are known for their thick, wiry, and long coat.  However, Scottish Terrier sheds very little.


Our cute little friend (Labradoodle) is a very popular hypoallergenic dog.


Both sizes of Schnauzer will not leave any hair trace behind.

Yorkshire Terrier

The steel blue and tan color combination of the Yorkshire Terrier also has a great advantage that it sheds very little.
