Labradoodles and Goldendoodles...depend on whether they take after the lab, golden or the poodles.... but I think you are right...if they do shed, it is minimal. However, these are the "designer" dogs that everyone gets so upset about on this forum. I was trying to see if there were any full breed dogs that do not shed. Thanks
All dogs shed. Period. You prolly can't see it, jawlaw. Shedding is getting rid of the hair that one does not need, or making room for new hair. So yes, your Schnauzer/Poodle does shed, you just do not see it, or it doesn't get on the furniture. ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596
Allie you are right. And I mentioned the designer dogs because they are larger dogs that don't shed much I didn't know you were just wanting to know about purebred. As far as other purebreds I don't think the Boveiar (sp) shed much.
I am not trying to argue, but I have always heard schnauzer and poodles do NOT shed... Ican pick my dog up and there will be absolutely no hair on my shirt (shnauzer/poodle mix)... The AMSC website that says they do not shed....
Larger breeds that shed minimally are standard poodles, giant schnauzers, irish water spaniels, american water spaniels, and portuguese water dogs. It's hit or miss on the 'doodles' or whatever. Bouviers shed, btw. I have a friend who shows bouviers and they shed steel grey hair *everywhere*. You really wouldn't believe how much those dogs shed.
Whatever you do don't get a dane!! You could make a million wigs with all the hair they shed. I have never been around a dog that needs more brushing than Oscar. My aunt has a standard poodle and she says that she has never found a single hair. I thought that is one of the reasons people buy poodles is because the aren't supposed to shed.
