Book Dog Walk


Have you ever hugged a pup only to find yourself covered in fur from head to toe? Your clothes and rugs look like they are shedding instead of the dog. There is a solution to that. Some breeds are more adapted to hanging on to their coats rather than sharing them. You can even have a long-coated pup to brush and admire, without losing their locks in the process. If you are looking for a fur-ever friend with a lesser tendency to share their fur with you, check out this list of the top dog breeds that don’t shed.

American Hairless Terrier

As this name implies, the American Hairless Terrier is full of spunk, but has no hair. Just a little fuzz is all, and they are anxious to keep the little they have! Put a sweater on this little pup and keep their skin clean – that’s about all that’s necessary to keep them happy. These pups make gentle and sweet family companions.  

Afghan Hound

Pull out your comb and get ready to brush and brush.  The Afghan Hound is blessed with a long, silky coat that doesn’t end, and will certainly be the talk of the dog park! This pup is proud of their coat and keeps it all to themselves. No worries about shedding here, as this hound won't fur up your life!

Bedlington Terrier

The Bedlington Terrier resembles a little lamb with a short, curly, woolen-type coat and non-shedding fur. They are small enough to carry, but hardy big enough to take for a hike. This pup has it all! Sweet and quiet, this pawtastic pup loves to cuddle, and you won’t have to worry about the fur flyin’.
