A Guide To Big Dogs That Don’t Shed: Non-Shedding Big Dog Breeds
What are the best big dogs that don’t shed?
There are many reasons why these big dogs have no hair. They may not be bred for shedding because they were born with it naturally. These dogs might have been raised without any human contact and never had exposure to other animals or humans. Some of them might have been kept indoors all their life. Others might have inherited a natural allergy to hair. Some of them may just be too old to shed. Whatever the reason, these big dogs do not need any special care.
There are several types of big dogs that don’t shed. These include:
1) The Alaskan Malamute
The alaskan malamute is one of the most popular breeds in North America. It was originally developed from the sled dogs of Alaska. The breed is known for its endurance and loyalty.
It’s small size makes it easy to handle and train. Its coat is short, thick and luxurious. When properly groomed, it looks like silky fur instead of coarse hair. Its colour can range from black, brown, gray, red and white.
2) The Siberian Husky
Another popular dog in North America, the siberian husky is originally bred for pulling loads long distances. It was mainly used by the eskimos in the Artic as a working dog. It has a thick coat that keeps it warm in cold, freezing temperatures.
Its thick fur repels rain and snow and its large paws act like snowshoes.
