Whether we like it or not, all dog breeds shed hair. It's a natural process (even humans "shed" hair!) and something dog owners have to live with. However, there are certain breeds that shed very little hair compared to the other dogs. For example, Poodles and Terrier breeds. A list of other dogs that don't shed much is represented below.

Please remember that if you have one of the mentioned breeds, it doesn't guarantee little shedding. A lot depends on the dog's overall health condition and proper diet. Dogs that do not receive a sufficient and well balanced amount of nutrients are very likely to have coat problems such as dull hair or excessive shedding. Make sure you provide your companion with a high quality grain free or raw diet. In addition, consider getting a brush called "Furminator". Many dog owners have admitted its efficiency in dog shedding reduction.
