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.

      Very interesting now I know what dog to get in the future because my other dog (a shh tzu and shedding free dog ) passed away and also a smarter dog maybe I will get a poodle ( they don't shed and they are the second smartest dogs ) thanks for adding this on here I am looking forward to reading more about dogs and by the way this website is very helpful when it comes down to decision making!

      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!

      Have to keep this list for the future. We have a pug that we love dearly, but he sheds A LOT!
