Grooming will be a regular expense

The worst part about a dog that sheds is the relationship strain. the dog may want to cuddle up against you, but if it is shedding you may hesitate. Nothing ruins your look on the way out the door like a million dog hairs on the leg of your pants. Dogs that don't shed do tend to need haircuts more often, as well as regular grooming. This is the trade off. However, I prefer a clean house, with an occasional trip to the groomers. This also allows you to try different haircuts and styles on your pooch.

      Honestly, after having one that doesn't shed, it's hard to imagine going back to cleaning up hair everyday...but as always once you have a dog you love, it's all worth it

      I love dogs, but the shedding bothers me. I will definitely keep this list around for when I can get a dog again!
