Doesn’t Shed: Needs to be Groomed

3:27 pm | Paw Print News |

If you are a first-time dog owner, or just looking for a pet that Doesn’t Shed, the following breeds do require grooming, but shouldn’t shed!

Standard Schnauzer

The “medium-sized” member of the Schnauzer family, the standard, is fearless and affectionate. Standards become true members of their families and especially love children. Their beard and leg hair should be brushed regularly to avoid mats. Hand stripping or clipping the hair are common forms of grooming.

Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier

This breed is playful, active, and needs daily exercise. They adapt well to their living environments and are good with children. They have a soft, single-layer coat of wheaten colored hair that should be maintained regularly to prevent any mats.

Portuguese Water Dog

These dogs would do best in an active family, as they are highly energetic. They are adventurous and fun-loving dogs. Their coats are profuse, curly or wavy, and waterproof. They are hypoallergenic, but should be groomed regularly.


Poodles come in three sizes: standard, miniature, and toy. Commonly pictured in their famously fluffy show cut, they have a soft, single coat of curly hair that is virtually hypoallergenic. They won’t shed all over your sofa, but just like humans, Poodles can and will shed a few strands of hair at a time. Brushing at least once a week will greatly reduce shedding, as well as the chance that they will cause an allergic reaction.


Maltese are tiny, yet fearless. They have a youthful expression, making them look like lifelong puppies. They are gentle and playful and not overly energetic. Their hypoallergenic coats are soft and white and should be brushed daily, especially if kept long.

Irish Water Spaniel

Known as the clown of the spaniel family, Irish Water Spaniels have a water-repellent double coat that should be brushed every couple of weeks. They have a thick, curly coat all over their body. Irish Water Spaniels are very playful and energetic and should get exercise daily.
