Hairless Dog Breeds

Hairless Dog Breeds

There are plenty of reasons why you might want to choose a dog that isn’t going to shed its hair. Allergies tend to be aggravated by shedding and some people simply don’t want to spend their free time vacuuming dog hairs off the floor and furniture. Here’s some of the best examples of dog breeds that don’t shed.


The Poodle is one of the most popular dog breeds in history. They require lots of careful grooming, but they rarely shed, and that applies to all types of poodle.

Airedale Terriers

The Airedale Terrier is the largest of all terrier breeds. They’re clever dogs and very powerful as well, but you won’t need to worry about shedding.

Border Terriers

Terriers generally don’t shed much, so another example is the Border Terrier. They’re very lively and love to spend time outdoors.

Chinese Crested

Chinese Crested dogs don’t have much hair so it’s not a complete surprise to find they don’t shed. They certainly have a distinctive appearance though.

Afghan Hound

With all that hair, you’d think Afghan Hounds shed a lot, but they really don’t. That doesn’t mean that you don’t have to clean, brush and groom their hair though because you certainly do.


Basenjis are highly intelligent dogs; they’re short-haired and don’t shed much at all and were first bred as hunting dogs. They clean their own coat but can be a challenge to train.

Irish Water Spaniel

The Irish Water Spaniel is a fantastic companion dog and was once used for hunting. They’re very loyal and enjoy being active, as well as not shedding.
