5 Small Dog Breeds that Don’t Shed

If you’re looking for a dog that doesn’t shed at all, then better go and get yourself a plush toy. Joking aside, there’re actually some dog breeds that almost don’t shed and are perfect for people with allergies and those who don’t enjoy vacuuming every other day.

Here’re 5 of the least shedding dog breeds that come in small packages:

Bichon Frise

Independent, lively and loving human contact, Bichon Frise should be groomed frequently and bathed every month. Professional grooming is recommended every 4 weeks and shedding won’t be a problem at all.

Shih Tzu

Even though Shih Tzu almost doesn’t shed, this dog is high maintenance on the grooming front and therefore owners should invest in lots of grooming tools to keep their pet’s coat looking good. So if you’re looking for a hair free home, that’s a good choice, only if you’re ready to invest time and resources in their hair style.

Yorkshire Terrier

One of Briton’s favourite dogs, Yorkies are a delight to look after, they’re really low maintenance comparing to other breeds and they recently made our Longest Living Dog Breeds list. On the top of that, they’ll keep your home hair-free which is fantastic.

Chinese Crested

If you want a dog that doesn’t shed, maybe get a dog that doesn’t have hair at all. The Chinese Crested dog breed was created to be an invalid’s companion. They can lie in bed without moving for hours and be equally happy to play all day. Once they fall in love with you, you’ll have a friend for a lifetime.

Miniature Schnauzer

The Miniature Schnauzer is a smart, trainable, and cheerful little dog that sheds very little, and their adaptability makes them perfect for wherever you’re based. Weekly brushing and regular grooming are required to help they look at their best.
