Non-shedding Dog Breeds

Non-shedding dog breeds or low shedding dogs are sought after when you have family members who are sensitive to dog hair, or maybe just to ensure less house-cleaning!

Most terriers are low-shedding dogs even though have thick dense coats. 

Regular brushing will ensure that dead hair is safely removed from the allergy friendly dog.

Non shedding dogs are not necessarily short haired dog breeds. For example the Silky Terrier or the Maltese.
