Low Shedding Dog Breeds

There are a number of dog breeds that shed very little hair.

There are usually two reasons why people choose low shedding dogs to share their lives. One reason people choose a low shedding dog breed is because they prefer that their house and furniture is not covered in dog hair. The other reason is that someone in the household is allergic to dogs.


Is there really a breed of dog that is hypoallergenic?

The prefix 'hypo' in the word hypoallergenic means 'less than normal'. Therefore the word hypoallergenic does not mean non-allergenic. A hypoallergenic dog is less likely than other dogs to produce allergic reactions in some people.

Although some dog allergy sufferers can tolerate any or all of the following breeds not all allergy sufferers can.

Below is the American Kennel Club’s list of “Breeds that generally do well with people with allergies” The following breeds shed very little.

Bedlington Terrier

Bichon Frise

Chinese Crested

Irish Water Spaniel

Kerry Blue Terrier

Maltese Terrier


Portuguese Water Dog


Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier

Mexican Hairless Dog


Cross Breeds can be unpredictable with regards to shedding

Cross breeds of any of the above breeds are extremely fashionable these days. Often known as 'Designer Dogs'. Poodle crosses especially, are one of the more popular choices. Cross breeds are not consistent with the characteristics of just one of the breeds involved in their heritage. Therefore, for example, the offspring of a poodle crossed with an Labrador (Labradoodle) cannot be guaranteed to inherit the non shedding traits of a poodle and may in fact inherit the Labrador trait which does indeed shed.
