The 20 Best Dog Breeds for Shedding

The problem of dog shedding is one that many owners simply accept because they are very happy with their dog. They might not have done their homework, or failed to realize what a problem shedding can be for both the owner and the dog. The dog, if left ungroomed, will develop problems with its coat and look mangy. As for the owner, they will have to clean up their living quarters more than once a year in many cases, as many breeds shed during the spring and the fall.

But there is another reason for wanting a dog that sheds very little or not at all – allergies. Some people are allergic to the shedding fur while others are allergic to the dander that goes with the shedding territory. In either case, the less a dog sheds, the better. Add to that the less time you will have to spend cleaning up twice a year, and the benefits of a lightly shedding, 99% hypoallergenic dog will outweigh any extra you pay to get any one of the specific breeds on this list.

Several of the breeds on this list require some grooming to maximize their minimal shedding potential. There are a few breeds listed that require almost zero grooming. Whatever dog you choose, you need to be aware of the grooming demands even though all are low shedders and hypoallergenic to owners. The perfect fir for your situation requires you to think carefully and do your homework.
