Non Shedding Dog Breeds Information

People who are allergic to dogs are often on the lookout for non shedding dog breeds, or dogs that don't shed any hair. The truth is, every dog sheds a little bit, but the less it sheds the more hypoallergenic it is considered to be, since a lot of the allergens that affect people are present in the fur and dander of the dog. Scientifically speaking, there's no such thing as a completely Hypoallergenic Dog Breed, but there are some dogs that come very close. Below are a few of the most popular non shedding dog breeds, but first, here are a few reasons why you would want a dog that doesn't shed in the first place.

First of all, as mentioned, non shedding dog breeds are the perfect choice for people who normally have allergic reactions when in the presence of dogs. Allergens from dogs are actually a very specific kind of protein that's present in the dog's saliva and fur. Dogs that don't shed very much won't release very much of this protein into the air.

Another reason why you might want a Most Popular Dog Breed is that you won't have to worry about cleanup and home maintenance nearly as much. One of the biggest pet peeves with dog owners is the amount of hair that covers everything – the furniture, clothes, rugs, and carpets. Eventually you stop noticing it, but it's still there, covering your suit when you go in for a job interview, all over your car seats when you drive your kids to soccer practice, and so on.

If you really want the aMost Popular Dog Breed but it's known to shed a lot, regular brushing can keep a lot of the extra fur away. Brushing once a day for 10 or 15 minutes, depending on the size of the dog, may be all it takes to get rid of both allergens and annoying fur over everything in the house. It's also believed that twice weekly bathing will go a long way towards eliminating allergens from the home, which may be a viable option if either you or someone you live with is sensitive or allergic to dogs.

Finally, here's a list of non shedding dogs that you may want to consider getting. Remember, there's a lot more to owning a dog than whether or not it sheds, so before to do your research on other things like diet, nutrition, Dog First Aid, exercise, and training before getting one of these dog breeds.
