No Shed Dog Breeds

Monday, December 15th, 2008

No shed dog breeds are quite popular for people who have allergies. This is also a likely preference if you would like to own a dog but do not wish to be cleaning and vacuuming as often.

There is no such thing as a “no shed dog breed” if you are looking for a dog that absolutely does not have some amount of fur or hair coming off it at certain periods. All dogs shed, but some not as much. Well, that’s the good news. There are some breeds of dogs that shed less than others and to some extent this means these dog breeds have less allergens that may be the cause of your allergies. Most allergies are casued by animal dander, urine or feces. With a dog that sheds less, that means less dander. And the other allergens can be alleviated by regular bathing and household cleaning. On the otherhand less hair falling from your pet means less requirement for cleaning up and vacuuming.
