Dogs That Dont Shed Much for People with Allergies

Want a dog, but your allergies just say, “Noooo!”? Well, one of these breeds just might be the
thing. But remember, no breeds are guaranteed hypoallergenic. So, the best bet is to spend time with a breed
before adopting. Hi, I’m Leroy and I’m Rosie and this is
Animal Facts. Let’s get started. But, before we start, take a moment to like
and subscribe for more fun, fauna facts. Let us know about your doggy in the comments
below. 10. Border Terrier The Border Terrier was bred for hunting foxes
and rodents, but this intelligent and hardy breed also makes her a lively companion or
family pet. The Border is good-tempered, affectionate,
obedient, and easily trained. She’s highly intelligent and quickly learns
the cues that signal you’re going outside for a walk or to the office, when it’s dinnertime,
and what you like and don’t like her to chew. Her wiry coat is hypoallergenic, sheds little,
and requires an easy weekly brushing. The Border Terriers isn’t yappy, but she’ll
bark to alert you of anything unusual, and she can become a nuisance barker if she gets
bored. We publish every Monday and Friday. So, hit that notification icon to not miss
a single fact. 9. Shih Tzu The Shih Tzu is both loyal and friendly, and
he happens to be hypoallergenic, too. The Shih Tzu’s coat does not shed, with
the hair only falling out when brushed or broken. The favored pet of the Tang Dynasty, this
“little lion dog” comes in a variety of colors and patterns. This Toy dog is sturdy and lively, with a
carriage often described as arrogant, due to his proudly held head and curling tail. The Shih Tzu was bred to be a house pet, and
his gentle, trusting nature makes him an exceptional companion. 8. Bichon Frise The Bichon Frise is truly a non-shedding small
dog who has hair like yours instead of fur. This playful and affectionate dog is an ideal
pet for people with allergies, but she is not maintenance-free. The Bichon Frise’s hair grows continuously,
requiring frequent grooming, brushing, and the occasional bath in order to keep up with
her powder-puff looks. No dog is truly hypoallergenic as all dogs
shed some allergens. If you have dog allergies, we suggest you
spend time with a breed before you adopt. 7. Basenji If you love hounds but don’t enjoy their distinctive
corn chip odor and shedding habits, the Basenji, who originates from Central Africa, might
be the perfect small dog breed for you. The Basenji sheds very minimally, and his
short, fine coat requires little care beyond the occasional brushing. The Basenji lacks a distinctive odor and is
also famously quiet, which makes him an ideal dog for apartments – as long as he gets daily
exercise and playtime. He is a hunting dog after all. 6. Bolognese Like the Bichon Frise, the distinctive fluffy
coat of the Bolognese is composed of hair rather than fur. The Bolognese does not shed, although dead
hair must be brushed out regularly, and the coat requires daily grooming to keep this
lovable lap dogs looking her best. The Bolognese, like his cousin the Bichon
Frise, is a tiny white dog with curly hair. Unlike the Bichon, the Bolognese’s hair flows
in long, wavy locks, giving him the look of a fairy tale dog. Sometimes a bit shy, he’s something of a one-person
dog, never happier than when he’s in your lap. 5. Chinese Crested One way to avoid shedding is to select a dog
breed without hair or fur. The Chinese Crested comes in two coat types:
hairless and powderpuff. The Hairless Chinese Crested have hair on
his head, tail, and feet, while the powderpuff is covered with a coat of fine hair that sheds
very minimally. A hairless dog breed requires extra care and
attention when it comes to his skin. Without hair, he needs protection from the
sun and cold and is more prone to skin irritations. The most popular of the hairless breeds, the
Chinese Crested is still very rare. He is alert, charming, agile and lovable. Though affectionate and playful with children,
children should be taught not to be rough with him as he is friendly, but he does not
have the protective hair that other breeds have and can get injured easily. Overall, he is an entertaining and amusing
companion. 4. Havanese This native Cuban dog offers his owner both
his spunky charm and a coat that doesn’t shed, which means less time spent lint rolling the
furniture and more time romping with the playful Havanese. A member of the Bichon family of dogs, along
with the Bichon Frise, the Maltese, and the Bolognese, his coat requires weekly brushing
and regular baths to keep him clean and healthy. The Havanese does well in all types of housing,
from apartments to homes with large yards. But he’ll probably bark when he sees someone
passing by the house or when he hears a strange noise. The good news is that he doesn’t bark just
for the sake of hearing his own voice. 3. Lhasa Apso This small dog breed from Tibet makes an excellent
companion. Calm yet playful, the Lhasa Apso enjoys brisk
walks and resting in her owner’s lap. Lhasa Apso doesn’t shed, but her coat does
require maintenance. Many owners keep their Lhasa Apso clipped
in a “puppy cut” to avoid daily grooming and brushing of her long hair. Be aware that the breed is known for being
impatient with the normal clumsiness associated with children; he’ll nip. He tends to bond with adults more than with
youngsters, but this isn’t a hard-and-fast rule. Older children, or young children who are
exceptionally gentle with dogs, can live happily with the Lhasa. If you are seeking a 100 percent “kid dog,”
the Lhasa is probably not a good choice. 2. Miniature Schnauzer The Miniature Schnauzer is a smart, trainable,
and cheerful little dog that strongly resembles his Standard Schnauzer cousin. This Terrier sheds very little, and his adaptability
makes him at home in the city or the country, as long as his people are close by. To keep your Miniature Schnauzer looking his
best, incorporate weekly brushing and regular grooming into his schedule. He likes to be in the center of the action. He’s fairly good with children and he’s energetic,
with a lot of terrier spunkiness. The problem is, he has no clue how small he
is, and he’s likely to talk trash to a much larger dog without any concept of the consequences. That swagger of his can get him in trouble,
so it’s up to you to keep him in line. Before we get to number one, here are some
popular breeds we didn’t cover. Affenpinscher
Brussels Griffon Maltese
Scottish Terrier Yorkshire Terrier Hey guys, we’ve been working on our Patreon
page and hope you’ll check it out at 1. Poodle Last but certainly not least is the Poodle. Most people think of the poodle when they
hear about small dogs that don’t shed, and with good reason. The Poodle is non-shedding and hypoallergenic. Miniature and Toy Poodles offer these qualities
in a petite, intelligent package that differ only in size from Standard Poodles. The Poodle is highly intelligent, making him
easy to train. He is an active, proud dog. His hair does require regular grooming to
avoid mats and tangles. The Poodle has been used as a contributing
parent for quite a few hypoallergenic hybrid breeds often called Doodle dogs, such as the
Cavapoo, the Maltipoo, the Schnoodle and the Cockapoo. There’s a playlist in the card. Want more fun, fauna facts? Go ahead and smash that subscribe button and

  2. All these dogs are absolutely adorable. If I were going to get one, I would choose a poodle or a poodle mix tho. Thankfully, I have no allergy to cats or dogs.

  3. All of these are absolutely adorable!!! Strangely enough, my Chihuahua doesn't shed hardly any. The only time that I see her hair on my clothes is when she is really nervous such as on the way to the vet. LOL

  4. I have always wanted a dog my entire life and when I saw this video the Miniature Schnauzer I loved it! I am allergic to dogs that shed hair. One day I went to school and then my dad picked me up. We went to the pet store and saw a mini schnauzer I told my dad about this video and soon my dad told me “ We have now adopted this puppy!” Now I am happy that I got her ! Thanks for the video!

  5. Hi Leroy! I can't believe I didn't see this video before. I have dog allergies and unfortunately all three of my dogs shed,& & and the 2 large dogs shed A LOT! Needless to say allergy meds are a part of my daily regimen. I've heard a bit about a supplement for the dogs called dinovites. Have you heard of them or have any experience with dinovites? All the reviews that I've read have been positive but I tend not to trust reviews because they can be faked. Thanks for another cute video. 🙂
