Non Shedding Dog Breeds

Non shedding dog breeds consist of a lot of non shedding small dogs, but we list most of the dog breeds that are not known for dog shedding.

First of all there is no dog that does not shed some of it's hair. So by non shedding we mean the breeds that shed less than others because all dogs will shed at least some of their hair which gets replaced. So our list will let you know which breeds will keep the shedding to a minimum and save the owners all that clean up.

Typically the non shedding small dogs out number the larger canines when it comes to amount of dog shedding.

The non shedding small dogs have the largest number of non shedding dogs which is one of the reasons why they are so popular. Just remember that all dogs shed to some degree so do not be fooled by those stating that they know of any dog that does not shed.

If you get a one of those breeds that shed lightly then expect to brush it at least every other day. The reason I say that is because if you do not brush a light dog shedding canine often enough the hair that it does shed, even as minimal as you might think, goes into their undercoat. Over time the undercoat will build up to where your canine is a matted mess, causing them pains because matted dog hair sticks to a dog's skin and can pull when they become active.

There are some Hairless dogs that still produce skin cells and saliva, but because they do not have a coat these are even better than a non shedding dogs when it comes to producing annoying allergens. So here are the Hairless dog breeds:

  • Chinese Crested
  • Mexican Hairless (Xoloitzcuintli)
  • Peruvian Hairless (Inca Orchid>
  • American Hairless Terrier


The Yorkshire Terrier is a low dander breed and the Samoyed produces hair but has no dander.
