For all of us who love having dogs as pets but hate cleaning hair around the house, or simply for whom dog hair causes an allergic reaction, this is a compilation of dog breeds that shed little hair . Although in reality all dogs shed hair, not all do so to the same extent. The so-called hairless breeds, for example, have very short fur that is almost non-existent at first glance. So they can leave hair, but these will not be a problem when cleaning. After all, even humans shed hair.

What to do to reduce hair loss in our dogs

Just because a dog sheds little hair does not mean that it does not require attention and cleaning care, such as a good daily brushing so that the hair remains healthy and does not have knots. Hair shedding in dogs is inevitable , but there are certain things we can do to reduce hair loss. In many cases this is natural and, in others, it is a consequence of poor diet and stress. For this reason, it is vital to ensure that we are providing adequate nutrition. It is equally necessary that the dog is in the best health conditions and that we take care of its coat appropriately and according to its breed.

Facts to keep in mind about short-haired breeds

There are no dogs that do not shed hair, unless it is one that is completely bald such as the xoloitzcuntle or the Chinese crested, which also have some hair or other and only eventually shed it. It is often believed that by choosing a dog with short hair, you will have less hair at home, and this is not the case. Some long-haired breeds shed less hair than some short-haired dogs, if they are well maintained and brushed. The vast majority of hairless or bald dogs come from Latin America. These are sought after, more than for not shedding hair, for the fact that they do not suffer from infestations caused by fleas or ticks . On the other hand, keep in mind that a dog that sheds little hair will not necessarily cease to be a factor that triggers the allergy of people who suffer from it, since this condition is rarely directly related to the coat, but is caused by your dander or saliva. Likewise, we recommend that before adopting a dog as a pet, you consult your trusted doctor about the possibilities that it may cause health conditions such as allergies or asthma.
