Extremely Light Shedding Dogs
Every dog sheds some just like people lose a little hair. But some dogs shed much more than others, while the ones discussed here shed a lot less. A lightly shedding dog is better for those people that want a house dog without as much cleanup of the dog's fur required. It is also a plus for less grooming of your pet.
Those that want a dog that shed's less have a large variety of breeds to choose from including: the Irish Water Spaniel, Puli, Yorkshire Terrier, Toy Poodle, Bolognese, and the Doodleman Pincher. This list is a sampling of breeds that shed less and isn't all inclusive of them.
The so called non-shedding breds make the best pets for people with allergies. Dander and dead skin, which flakes off are allergens. The don't shed breeds don't make as much allergy inducing material as other dogs.
The length of the dog's coat isn't as important in determining if he is a big shedder, as how many layers there are to his coat. In other words, pick a dog with one layer to his coat, not two layers. This rule applies whether the dog is short haired, wire haired or long haired.
People with allergies that are looking for a non-shedding dog, still need to be around the dog some to see if they will have an allergic reaction to the dog. Person A's allergies can be triggered by one bred, while person B's allergies aren't agitated. So visit with the pooch before rushing home with the lovely pet.
Obviously, the non-shedding breeds are the ones to choose from, if you want to pick a dog for an allergic child. This should be on the okay of the child's allergist. But if at all possible it is a wonderful part of childhood to have a dog. as a friend. It is important as with the adult allergy sufferer to make sure the dog won't cause an allergic reaction.

The Maltese is a good choice because it is a friendly little dog that likes to play. The Labradorean is a dog that is family oriented that enjoys running and playing. It is a large dog. The Irish Water Spaniel is a medium dog in size. It has a good deposition for children and is a gentle dog. It is an intelligent animal and a beautiful dog. A beagle is a good choice for a child's pet, which is non-shedding, friendly, and loving.
Those are just some of the non-shedding dogs that are also perfect to be around children. Others include the Golden Doodle, Bichon Frise, and the Bouvier des Flandres.
If a non-shedding dog is your choice, you won't be without a variety to choose from in bred, size, and personality. Some are particularly good with children. One of these wonderful dogs is waiting for you to give it a good home.
