Non-Shedding Dogs: A List of Small, Mid-Sized, and Large Dogs That Don't Shed

Updated on December 5, 2014

Looking for Dogs That Don't Shed?

Looking for dog breeds that don't shed? We have both good and bad news for you:

  • The good news is that there are dogs breeds that shed very little. These are commonly known as hypoallergenic dogs. They are going to leave very little hair around your house, and usually not set off your allergies (at least not too badly).
  • The bad news? The dogs that don't shed outwardly will shed inwardly. Dogs that don't shed outwardly actually shed into their undercoat. More on that later.

A hot recent trend for some dog breeders in marketing their dogs is to advertise them as non-shedding. We have seen countless ads for "Goldendoodles" (a designer dog "breed") and other breeds that are being labeled as hypoallergenic. The problem with this label is that actually all dogs will leave varying degrees of dander around your house—dander is the cause of dog allergies, not the hair itself. Now, many of these designer breeds do not leave a lot of dander, but there is still enough that your allergies could be affected.

So, in this article, you'll find a list of dogs of all sizes that shed very little (as well as some bonus information and media, including a list of dogs that are prone to shedding a lot). But, keep in mind: an actual non-shedding dog doesn't really exist.

Non-Shedding Small Dog Breeds

Here is a list of small dogs that don't shed, or shed very little:

  • Chinese Crested
  • Silky Terriers
  • Cavachons
  • Shih-Tzus
  • Border Terriers
  • Boston Terriers
  • Miniature Schnauzers
  • Miniature Poodles
  • Malteses
  • Australian Terriers
  • American Hairless Terriers
  • Scottish Terriers (Scotties)
  • Welsh Terriers
  • Norfolk Terriers
  • Havanese
  • West Highland Terriers (Westies)
  • Yorkshire Terriers (Yorkies)
  • Cairn Terriers
  • Bichon Frises
  • Italian Greyhounds
  • Miniature Goldendoodles

Non-Shedding Medium and Large Dog Breeds

Greyhounds are a mid/large-sized dog breed that don't shed that much.

Here is a list of mid-sized to large dog breeds that don't shed or shed very little:

  • Kerry Blue Terriers
  • Bedlington Terriers
  • Wire Fox Terriers
  • Airedale Terriers
  • Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers
  • Basenjis
  • Irish Water Spaniels
  • Greyhounds
  • Standard Poodles
  • Bergamasco Shepherds
  • Standard Schnauzers
  • Bouvier des Flandres

What are Designer or Hybrid Dogs?

You may have noticed that our list(s) include some designer or hybrid dogs, such as the Cavachon or Miniature Goldendoodle. So, exactly what are designer dogs or hybrid dogs?.

"Designer" dogs were created in the latter part of the last century in an attempt to breed out undesirable hereditary traits and to create hypoallergenic dogs. Up until recently, the Poodle was involved as one of the parents. Now, all different kinds of breeds are used, like Beagles and Pugs that make a "Puggle," or Cavaliers and Bichons that make "Cavachons." These new breeds, or "hybrid dogs," are not recognized by the AKC or any other major canine governing body. However, they could make a great dog for you if your main concern is owning a hypoallergenic dog.

Grooming Tips: How To Brush Your Dog

The Final Word on Non-Shedding Dogs

You are probably asking yourself: "what will I have to do if I get one these 'non shedding' dogs?" That's a good question. The answer is, you will have to brush it. Ideally, you will brush it every day, or every other day.

  • Matting: If you don't brush it a lot, the hair that the dog sheds goes into the undercoat. The undercoat builds up. Very soon, your dog will turn into a matted mess. Matted hair can be painful for a dog, as it sticks to the dog's skin and can pull the skin when the dog moves. Soon, the dog will be so matted you can't do anything with it. So, you take it to your local grooming shop if this happens. Unfortunately, getting matted hair off a dog isn't easy, and it can be painful for the dog. Sometimes, the dog is so matted that all it's hair has to be shaved off, which sometimes leaves you with an ugly dog!

So, fellow dog owners and seekers of non shedding dogs, remember this: When you get that new puppy, look into purchasing a new vacuum or brush immediately.

A List of Dog Breeds That DO Shed a Lot

Labradors are a dog breed that do shed a lot, unfortunately.

If you don't care about shedding, the dog breeds listed below will make great pets. However, if you are allergic to dog hair (or to a vacuum cleaner), you might want to steer clear of these dogs:

  • German Shorthaired Pointers
  • Labrador Retrievers
  • Dobermans
  • Rottweilers
  • Dachshunds
  • Beagles
  • Golden Retrievers
  • Huskies
  • Samoyeds
  • Malamutes
  • Corgis
  • Collies
  • Shelties
  • Dalmatians
  • German Shepherds

If you choose one of these, good luck!

Last Things to Consider: Thinking of Getting a New Dog?

Consider Rescuing a Homeless Dog!

If you are considering a new pet for your home, then consider the fact that there are literally millions of homeless dogs and cats that need a good home. If you are looking for a certain breed, or a designer dog, they are available too. Yes, adopting a pet can be a serious pain in the patootie, and the process you have to go through might make you think you are applying for a job at the CIA, but the good folks at your local dog rescue are just trying to assure that once adopted, the dog will stay adopted and in a loving home. No, you can't just walk in and pay your money like the pet store at the mall, but then again, you won't be supporting your local puppy mill.

Adopt a pet!

Let us know you were here! Give us a shout . . . or a bark. Arf!

      Great and very comprehensive list! I have allergies to some dogs and currently have a Chinese Crested Powder Puff. He doesn't shed and is great for people who have dander allergies. On the flipside, I have owned three Siberian Huskies, which believe it or not are good for people with allergies (less dander) but they definitely shed a lot! I love the Siberian Husky though and my furbabies were worth the extra vaccuming. Great lens!

      @anonymous: Don't know the age of your kids, but if they are old enough to be gentle with a dog, get an Italian greyhound. They don't shed and they don't smell. They are the perfect house dog as long as you have a yard they can run in. They need to run, but watching them is fun in itsel.

      I have a toy Poodle. I keep her hair cut short and I only have to brush her about once every week, or even less than that. She gets groomed every 8 weeks. So, dogs won't necessarily get matted without a lot of brushing if their hair is kept fairly short. That's easier all around.

      Wow -- this was really helpful! I want to get a dog at some point and I was thinking about a dachshund because I love that breed. Since they have such short hair, I thought that would be a good choice -- I had no idea they were heavy shedders! Now I'm leaning towards an Italian greyhound, which was also high on my list.

      Great list of non-shedding breeds. Personally, I'd add Akitas to the list. They tend not to shed except for two or three times a year when they blow their coat. Of course, when they blow their coat, you end up with enough fur everywhere to make 5 or 6 more dogs!!

      Interesting. Having no pet allergies is a blessing but I wouldn't want to get many of these non-shedding dogs any who. I'm not into little dogs nor hyper ones listed for recommendation. Therefor I'll take my shedding, relaxed lovable mutt. Great lens though we done.

      Very informative lens. I never knew that a dog that sheds very little actually sheds into their undercoat. We have a corgi mix and he sheds onto everything, but the furnminator does work wonders.We use it on our cats too to help prevent hair balls.

      Alas, my Lab hated the Furminator--I was really looking forward to getting to vacuum less! But, for a dog who doesn't mind it, I'd imagine they're great for heavy shedders.

    • dukethepcdr profile image

      dukethepcdr 6 years ago

      I think one of the worst shedders is the Chesepeak Bay Retriever! My dad loved those dogs and we had one on our ranch all the time when I was a kid. Dad is an avid hunter, especially of waterfowl like Canada goose and ducks. So, he loved the almost waterproof and cold resistant hair of the Chessy. Unfortunately, with great hair comes great shedding! Those dogs shed year round, especially if they spend any time indoors. But the worst is in the spring! At that time, you can't pet them without getting handfuls of hair! Even though they shed, you've still got to brush them to keep that wonderfully insulating undercoat of fine wooly hair from matting. The overcoat is wavy, long and oily. At times, its almost like petting sheep. You get a lanolin like substance all over your hands. They are usually the color of dead grass (the ones dad got anyway, there are also "Chocolate" ones that are darker) and have pink noses and green eyes. Very striking looking and very big dogs. I loved their protectiveness and fierce loyalty but hated their hair! When they got older, dad would keep them in the house in the winter, getting dog hair in everything.

      @andiamo83: Good point, and added...but be sure to have a brush handy. Bouviers shed into their undercoat and not brushing properly and regularly will result in a matted dog. Thanks for your comment!

      I think it is important that people choose dogs that work with their lifestyles. It is too important that you do not fail at this choice - there are too many dogs in rescue organizations because of this. Also, if you decide to buy a purebred dog, either check out a rescue society for the breed or visit the breeder yourself - that will help you from avoiding puppy mills.

Then takes off with great speed and refuses to come anywhere close to me again until I put the toothbrush away.

      I see you have the little Italian Greyhounds on your list of dogs that don't shed very much, but you forgot to put Greyhounds on the list too! Lots of people with allergies find that Greyhounds' fur doesn't bother them, and as short-haired smooth-coated breed they need very little grooming, just a rub-down with a hound mitt or a soft cloth...

      On the other end, that FURminator is the world's greatest invention for long-haired, thick-coated dogs like my Golden Retriever who runs into every burdock and thistle she can find!

      Non-shedding dog breeds, also called hypoallergenic dogs, are great for people who have allergies. Dog fur, or animal dander, would be the triggering factor of all those sneezes and stuffy noses. That is the reason why some people do not get dogs at all.

      It is usually the DANDER that people are allergic to, not the hair itself. So really, if you are allergic to animals then you probably should not get one. There is no such thing as a Hypoallergenic dog nor a NON-shedding dog as was stated above.

      Also, please note that the GoldenDoodle is NOT A BREED !! it is a Mixed bred dog, aka mutt

    • kimark421 profile image

      kimark421 5 years ago

      @anonymous: Very true on the dander. My main concern on this lens is Non-Shedding dogs, and I believe I address the fact that there is no such thing...they either shed out, or in. As far as Goldendoodles and other designer dogs not being a "breed", I address this in my designer dog lenses. They are mutts in the eyes of AKC, but there are hundreds of thousands of people who consider them "breeds", and they are willing to spend purebred dog money to get one. Personally, I think those looking for a dog should adopt.

      Thank you for your comments!

      As Rose mentioned. it's generally the dander and not the hair that trigger my allergies. The hair shedding or matting is a cleaning and pet care task that comes with having a lovely doggie family member. I have the dander allergy issue but I've found that I can get myself desensitized if I spend time with the same pet on a regular basis. I'd love a smallish to mid-sized mixed breed lab or golden.

      Portuguese water dogs are considered hypo-allergenic. We raised a wonderful PWD, along with our children, through the 1980s and '90s. He required regular grooming, but he was perfect for our allergic household. He was a challenge to train but a joy to have. We loved him.

      We had a standard poodle until he died of old age last year; also great for allergic homes, and so lovable and easy to train.

      Nice lens. Good information to have before you get the dog. Lots of dogs end up in shelters because owners didn't understand how much was involved in being a dog owner. Please check out my new lens on adopting older dogs. They are my special passion but I love all animals. Thanks for the good info!

      Thanks for this helpful information. I wonder if in the end it would even make a big difference to my daughter, who's allergic--or if it's more about the dander. Either way, nice not to have dog hair all over onesself after a visit to doggie-lovers!

      Sure this list is very useful for many people. We have a Golden Retriever who we absolutely adore, but she does shed -- don't think Goldens are going to make it on this list! :-)

      Great lens! Dogs are so awesome so please make more dog lenses! Love to read about them! Quick story...I've got a toy poodle and even though he doesn't shed, he loves to dig around the house so when he's done digging, he always leaves a little fur behind....But it's cute because it's like evidence at the scene of the crime when I wonder how the bathroom rug got shredded! :)

      The bichon frise really does not shed. They have hair. They still require substantial brushing and get black crud in the corners of their eyes. But they do not shed.

      Just a warning to everyone who gets a Yorkshire Terrior (Yorkie) they get excited over just about anything and as puppies they will accidentaly pee in random places.. so it is wise to potty train them as fast as possible!!!

      I can attest to Basenjis being dogs that don't shed much. I've had a red/white and a black/white. We barely even knew the red/white was in the house. He did shed, but you couldn't see his fur unless you looked very closely. The black/white not so much. We can see her fur everywhere, but it's still not like a long haired dog.

      Shedding is a big issue - people who have allergies are much more likely to be okay with a non-shedding dog. Thoroughly researched.

      Don't let anyone tell you Cairn Terriers don't shed. I have one and she sheds quite a bit. You can minimize it by keeping them clipped and brushing them daily but they do shed.
