7 Puppy Dog Breeds That Don’t Shed!

No shed puppies, simply put, are dogs whose daily shedding ranges from barely detectable to somewhat noticeable.

The term “no shed” is kind of a misnomer, because all dogs shed to some degree, but on the bright side, people who suffer from allergies are usually able to own no shed puppies. We’ve compiled a list of 7 dog breeds that don’t shed!

Chinese Crested

We’ll start out with the obvious, since these dogs are pretty much hairless! The Chinese Crested dog falls into this category also because their small amount of hair is called powderpuff. This means they have soft hair all over, though not very visible. They are considered to be hypoallergenic. Here’s a interesting fact about them. Despite their name, these no shed puppies actually originated in Africa! After Chinese traders let the dogs board their ships to hunt vermin, they were renamed.

Portuguese Water Dog

You may have recognized this dog because he was Bo – the first dog! President Obama gifted his daughters this bubbly and energetic dog, in part to accommodate his daughter Malia’s allergies. Their coats shed very little and they are considered a hypoallergenic breed, but they still require regular grooming.

The Irish Water Spaniel

This breed serves as hunting dogs and companions. They are very friendly and active and loyal to their owners. Their full and fluffy coats don’t shed, but they do require regular and daily grooming.

Mini Schnauzer

Mini Schnauzer puppies have a thick, wiry, double coat, which came in handy while they dug into the ground, as it naturally kept off debris. As an added benefit, they do not shed much, so they are perfect for potential dog owners who have allergies.

Bouvier des Flandres

The Bouvier’s name means “cow-herder of Flandres.” There were originally three different dog breeds, but were dissolved into one after nearly becoming extinct during World War I. These no shed puppies are rare big beauties that were bred for herding, various farm duties, guards dogs, police dogs, and loving companion pets!

Basenji

Bred to be a hunting dog, these alert and energetic babies come from Central Africa. Their coats shed very little and they require a minimal amount of grooming. Basenjis are rather unique, because they don’t bark, but prefer to howl. What’s also fascinating is that they clean themselves in a manner similar to cats, but they don’t shed like them!

Bichon Frise

The Bichon puppy has a beautiful coat, but what makes it even more spectacular is that they are hypoallergenic. Their coats shed very little and is rather comparable to that of a Poodle. The longer their hair grows, the cuter and curlier it gets. Consequently, professional and regular grooming is necessary to maintain the purity of the powdery white coats. Visiting the groomer every 6-8 weeks will keep your Bichon looking radiant!
