    28 Dogs Breeds That Do Not Shed

    Overview

    All dogs shed, some more, others less, particularly in the spring or fall. But if you are not prepared for handling fur, you’re better off with goldfish. Many breeds, particularly curly-coated or wire-haired are not heavy shedders. However, these breeds require special grooming on a regular basis. Some double-coated breeds shed profusely once or twice a year. Others shed year-round.

    If your dog has little tufts of hair that look like pieces of cotton candy scattered throughout his coat, he is blowing coat, or shedding. You can pluck these tufts of hair out, but most dogs find that annoying. A better solution is to use a shedding blade or an undercoat rake.

    The shedding blade looks like something you’d use on a horse. It’s a flexible piece of steel with small saw-like teeth that catch the hairs. You can operate a blade in a one-handed U-shape configuration, or you can keep the blade straight and use both hands. The undercoat rake is a rake with either long sets of teeth to pull the dead hair out or a dual set of teeth that work both the undercoat and topcoat.
