Lisa asks…

What are some medium/large dog breeds that don’t shed?

My fiancé is allergic to some dogs so I’m wondering what medium/large dog breeds don’t shed. I don’t like small dogs so I want a bigger dog but they have to shed almost nothing and be good
with kids.

Also, how much do cocker spaniels shed? We had one whe I was 3 and from what my parents
told me he was a great dog and I love them and want one but we can’t get one if they shed much.

A portuguese water dog is a medium to large dog with minimal shedding … Fun, cute dogs … Cocker spaniels shed a lot and they have been overbred so do not have the best temperaments anymore … If there is a dog allergy involved here i would find out what the person is allergic to … Because with dog allergies a person can be allergic to the fur, to the dander or to the saliva … Or any combination of the three … When you do chose a dog, spend some time with the breed to be sure no allergies are triggered before bringing the dog home and discovering the allergy is too severe …

What are some dog breeds that don’t shed much?

I planning on buying/adopting a puppy. I want a dog that doesn’t shed much. I also want a dog that I can play with and hug roughly without him getting nippy. Size doesn’t matter to me, but I don’t want something as big as a Neapolitan Mastiff! (I’m only 5’2″ so that wouldn’t work)

Can you list some breeds that fit that criteria?
Thanks :)

There is no such thing as a “totally” non-shedding dog. All dogs shed at least a little hair at one time or another, as do humans. There are however dogs that shed little to no hair. This is a list of breeds that shed little to no hair.

Mandy asks…

What are some dog breeds that don’t shed a lot?

I grew up with Labrador Retrievers and loved them to death. I didn’t love their hair all over my clothing and the furniture, though. I am looking to get a dog, but I don’t want a dog that sheds a lot. I want a dog that is athletic, loving, caring, has the temperament of a lab, but without all the hair. I’m not looking for a poodle or terrier without fur. I just don’t want a dog that sheds a vacum load full of hair everyday.
