Non Shedding Dog Breeds Maltese

Is your dog’s shedding a problem? Want to reduce the dog hair on your sofa and car seats? There may be a bit of hope, as there are quite a few non shedding dogs.

While the idea of non shedding dogs is appealing, most non shedding dog breeds are just breeds that tend to shed less than others. Many of these breeds have less of a undercoat, shorter fur, or fur that’s less bulky and dense.

That said, some Terrier breeds, Schnauzers, and Poodles shed less than other breeds.

It’s the type of coat, not the length of fur, that determines how much a dog will shed. Dogs shedding both an outer coat and inner coat tend to shed more (the outer coat is usually coarser and longer, and the inner coat is softer and shorter) as the dogs shedding both coats, rather than one.

Dogs shedding both an inner and outer coat include German Shepherds, Siberian Huskies, and Golden Retrievers. Dogs with a single coat include all sizes of Poodles and Schnauzers, and even long-haired breeds like the Maltese.

You can reduce a dogs shedding, in any dog breed, with proper grooming. For many dogs, you may have to brush them daily during the spring, as their winter coat starts to shed. Some other dogs, like Labradors, shed more evenly all year, and may need to be groomed once or twice a week.
