Dogs That Don't Shed Okemos MI Dog Groming

Have you always wanted a dog but not gotten one because you are allergic?

A hypoallergenic dog that does not shed could be your new best friend.

Today we are going to talk about the top 5 dog breeds that do not shed.

View Our List Below

Bichon Frise

These smaller dogs are incredibly extroverted. They love being around other dogs and their human family. They are great with children partially because they are playful and have a lot of energy. Your bichon frise may be difficult to house train at first, but they are pretty quick learners otherwise.

Height: 9.5-11.5 inches

Weight: 12-18 pounds

Life Expectancy: 14-15 years

Bedlington Terrier

A good medium-sized dog, bedlington terriers prefer a more active lifestyle but also make great couch potatoes who will join you for the next movie marathon. They love to be the center of attention and will be protective of you and your family. They are pretty unique looking dogs more closely resembling the airedale which is another kind of terrier.

Height: 15-17.5 inches

Weight: 17-23 pounds

Life Expectancy: 11-16 years

Yorkshire Terrier

Likely the most talkative breed on this list, yorkshire terriers like to vocalize their opinion, and this is a part of their vigilant watchdog personality. Despite how protective they are, these feisty dogs are pretty open to strangers and meeting new people. If you are looking for a family dog, yorkshire terriers overflow with affection for their family and love children.

Height: 7-8 inches

Weight: 7 pounds

Life Expectancy: 11-15 years

Irish Water Spaniel

Irish water spaniels are the quietest breed on this list, but they still enjoy being with the family whether that is playtime or downtime. They are highly adaptable and trainable which is important because they like to be doing a job or another activity. Irish water spaniels like children but not as much as a yorkshire terrier or bichon frise does.

Height: 21-24 inches

Weight: males - 58-68 pounds, females - 45-58 pounds

Life Expectancy: 12-13 years


Like terriers, poodles are a pretty big umbrella breed. If you want a smart protective family dog who loves to play whether that is with kids or new people then a poodle may be the right choice for you. They are highly trainable and adaptable dogs that flourish when they have an activity to do or a problem to solve. Poodles make smart and versatile canine companions.

Height: 15 inches

Weight: male - 60-70 pounds, females - 40-50 pounds

Life Expectancy: 10-18 years
