1. Bedlington Terrier The loyal Bedlington Terrier is beloved for its smarts, athleticism and serious loyalty to the humans it adopts as family. These joyful sporting pets have boundless energy and are never too tired to play a game. Like many breeds with a mane of dense curls, the Bedlington sheds relatively little of its rough-and-soft coat, earning it a reputation for being allergy-friendly. Bedlingtons must be groomed at least once a week to keep their coat and skin in tip-top shape. 2. Bichon Frise Weighing no more than twelve pounds, the amiable Bichon Frise is the perfect lapdog. Resembling a small pile of cotton balls, the all-white toy dog breed makes a docile companion that quickly becomes attached to people. In recent years, the Bichon has surged in popularity as a possible non-allergenic alternative to heavy shedders. Certainly, its diminuitive size means it has less overall skin particles to shed. Brush your Bichon Frise daily and see a professional groomer every three to four months to maintain you and your pet’s health. 3. Chinese Crested If the Chinese Crested could speak, it would say ‘bald is beautiful.’ This breed has won more than its fair share of ‘World’s Ugliest Dog’ awards, but for those graced with the delicate Chinese Crested’s companionship, there’s no lovelier creature. While some pets dubbed ‘hypoallergenic’ require extensive grooming to ensure their coats stay tidy, owners of fur-less Chinese Crested dogs can skip this chore. 4. Irish Water Spaniel Good natured and easygoing, the top-knotted Irish Water Spaniel is an endearing low-allergen option. The curly-haired “Bog Dog,” born on the Emerald Isle, is one of the oldest and rarest of spaniels. Its thick brown, poodlelike coat is tightly wrapped into a single layer that sheds minimally. Given proper hairstyle maintenance, the Irish Water Spaniel is a top alternative for many dog lovers afflicted with allergies. 5. Kerry Blue Terrier Another descendant of old Ireland, the Kerry Blue Terrier is indeed the color of the sky, at least on an overcast day. The Irish Kerry’s demeanor, however, is anything but blue. A happy, poodlelike giant, its cheery temperament tends to rub off on the people around it. The Kerry Blue’s soft, wavy coat is unique in that it’s not fur at all, but real hair—and it doesn’t shed a bit. It does grow, however—and like human hair, it will just keep getting longer until you trim it. 6. Maltese A small dog with a big personality, the silken-haired Maltese is a supremely gentle breed with an active mind. It can be an enjoyable paradox living with a Maltese. This fearless little dog has an inspiring ‘keep calm and carry on’ attitude, but it can also be incredibly emotionally sensitive. Many people believe this breed unleashes less dander in the environment than other dogs. Maltese won’t shed hair provided a conscientious brushing and bathing routine is sustained. 7. Poodles Although there aren’t any completely dander-free dogs, there are definitely ones known to keep their hair and skin to themselves exceptionally well—like poodles. If you are looking for a cuddle buddy, poodles and poodle mixes are good candidates. Famous for their dense curly tresses, their coats seem designed to retain loose hairs and skin dander. Many people swear by poodles’ ability to give those with pet allergies a chance to enjoy a dog in their home with minimal stress. 8. Portugese Water Dog The Portuguese water dog is a good fit for active families. As its name suggests, the all-swimming Portuguese loves water, having been bred centuries ago to help fishermen make a living off the sea. Today, the Portuguese water dog enjoys special attention for its desirable single-layer, non-shedding coat, perfect for the allergy-prone. It recently took up residence in the White House, as the president’s normally allergic daughter proved able to tolerate this rare breed. 9. Miniature Schnauzer Bright-eyed and often crop-tailed, the German-bred mini schnauzer is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world, in part because of its coveted ability to save sensitive humans the misery of allergy attacks. Although many low-shedding pets have just a single layer of hair, the bearded schnauzer features a thickly woven double coat and a more coarse outer layer on top of that. A full grooming is recommended every month or two to help keep the schnauzer’s salt-and-pepper coat clean and its skin well-exfoliated. 10. Mexican Hairless Among dogs that don’t shed, the Mexican hairless is about as allergy-friendly as it gets. Also called the Xolo—pronounced “Sho-loh,” this native americano makes a lively companion with an appealing and sociable personality. Given an outlet for its energy, the Xolo is very easy to train. Is it really hairless? Yes, for the most part, although there may be some tufts on the head or tail. The Xolo’s smooth, baby-soft skin doesn’t attract fleas or burrs, and it won’t shed fur or much dander either.

  1. I am looking to re-home my German Shepherd puppy in the US please let me know if you are interested!!! Gender: Female Age: 13 weeks Colors: tan and black

  2. Miniature Schnauzers have hair not fur which makes them odorless and hypoallergenic.. Grooming is required about every 8 weeks.. Miniature Schnauzers are the BEST Watchdogs & Loyal Companions A Family Could Ever Ask For.. They Are Amazing Dogs!!❤

  3. what is the breed of the dog on the thumbnail💕?please, I need to know, I have always wanted that breed, but I don't know what breed it is😕💞
    edit: I know is a maltese, but is a mix or something?

  4. When you speak of poodles, don’t include poodle mixes. When you mix two dog breeds, you never know what you will get. Some poodle mixes can shed and are bad for people with allergies. If you want a dog with the characteristics of a poodle, get a pure bred poodle, because there is nothing that any other breed can add to improve on the poodle.

  5. Shih Tzus are also great for non-shedding dogs. We've had them for years and you do have to have them groomed every 4-6 weeks since they have a hair-like coat that continues to grow but I have picked up maybe 3 or 4 tuffs of hair the entire year (that he scratched out). He has allergies himself. Ugh! But luckily can take Benedryl otc just a half a tab twice a day.

  6. Robo-Voice SUCKS! Stopped at 35" mark! Can't stand it! There are some not bad robo-voices out there, but this is one of the worst! If you don't speak english, use subs.

  7. My Maltese Freddie is a beautiful bright sensitive dog. Doesn't shed hair. Looks absolutely beautiful after his bath. Smells good too. Very playful and friendly. Doesn't miss a trick. Most intelligent.

  8. Soft coated Irish terrier, medium size dogs 30-40 lb, not shedding and odorless. Only two serious disadvantage, this breed don't like hot climate and stubborn if you compared to others terriers.
    But the same time love all people,kids especially and very playful…

  9. DONT WE ALL LOVE DOGS ? NO, THAT IS SAD, NO, NO ! WE SAY DOG IS MANS BEST I SORRY FOR MY POOR ENGLISCH. COPIED THIS COMMENT AND PASTED IT MAS COMMENT TO MORE VIDEOS TO LET EVERYONE KNOW, WE ARE NOT OKAY, BECAUSE
    FRIEND. THAT IS SO TRUE , IT DESCRIBES THE WORD 'BEST'THE BEST , BUT COULD A DOG SAY OR WOOFERS 'HUMANS ARE OUR BEST FRIEND, THEY JUST THROW US AWAY AFTER SAVING THEM, AFTER BEING A FRIEND UNTILL THE BABY COMES, WE AL;SO GET BEATEN UNTILL WE DIE, INSTEAD OF A STAB IN OUR HAERT, WE GET TORTURED AND THAN EATEN, WHICH IS NOT THE WORST, IT IS THE TORTURE. WHY ? AND STILL THE LEADERS DO BUSINESS WITH THE TORTURES, THE CHINESE, THEY LAUGH AT OUR PRESIDENT BECAUSE THEY DO NOT SAY ÍF YOU GO ON TORTURING ANIMALS AND HUMAND WE DONT DO BUSINESS WITH YOU, NO, I THINK IT IS WORSE THAN BEING THE TORTURER, BEING BLIND FOR MONEY, WHY ARE MY FRIENDS IN CAGES, ON DEATHROW, WHY ? WE SERVE, WE ARE BORN TO BE A FRIEND, WHY ????????????? THEY POST MORE PHOTOS OF DOGS THAN THE PARTNER THEY LIVE WITH, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HUMANS.

  10. I find it surprising that they mention the schnauzer but not the Scottish Terrier. Their coats are pretty much the same as is the care involved. They also didn't mention the West Highland Whiten who also has pretty much the same coat.

  11. Humans are allergic to the protein in the dog's and cat's skin, not to the fur. So even if they don't shed or are hairless, it won't help.

  12. The last one would also be the perfect breed for all the people these days who have the Compulsion to shave every hair on their body. I have a friend I am going to start calling Xolo! LOL!!

  13. We must all brush our bacon fries. However a healthy weight for the Bichon Frise can be anywhere between 12 to 20 pounds. I rescued one at
    14 1/2 pounds the Vet and I determined that my Bichon's ideal weight is between 18 to 20 pounds. At 14 1/2 pounds her ribs were prominate and skin was loose. I've managed to get her a weight gain of 2 pounds.

  14. That black Kerry Blue Terrier with his head on the floor is up to mischief, you can see his eyes just sparkling with it! 😆🇺🇸

  15. DANDER = Dead skin mixed with saliva.
    (gross but fact) According to several allergy specialists.

    Animal lick's itself, to scratch or groom, POOF dander! ALLERGY!

  16. What about the best one you forgot. Had 2 in my life. Bouvier des Flanders ❤ they don't shed. Best breed ever.

  17. it's Bee- Shawn Free- Say, not whatever that computer mumbler. And it's de- min- you- tiv. Again, not what that damned computer spouted.

  18. You missed. What about the breed that has won the most at Westminster, the Wire Fox Terrier? I have mine groomed every 6 to 8 weeks. They are very smart and a lot of fun. Mine is with me all the time, and when I leave him home he lays quietly by the door when he is expecting me home.
