Dogs of a Larger Size That Do Not Shed

Airedale Terrier

The Airedale terrier is the largest of the terrier breeds, hence it earns the title "King of Terriers." 

The Airedale was bred in England's Aire Valley, where its skills as a ratter and ducker were highly prized.

Afghan Hound

The mountainous region that is now Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan is the birthplace of the Afghan hound, a very ancient dog breed.

 The fast canines were treasured as hunting companions and cherished by the upper class. 


The barbet is a centuries-old French retriever breed with a long, curly coat that sheds very little but needs daily brushing to prevent mats and tangles.

The barbet is a social, gregarious, and playful breed of dog that gets along great with both kids and other pets. 

Irish Water Spaniel

The Irish water spaniel was originally bred to point, flush, and recover downed waterfowl, landbirds, and small game such as pheasant and quail.

The Irish water spaniel's coat is thick and curly, yet its long tail is entirely smooth, earning it the moniker "Rat Tail Spaniel." 


The largest of these designer dogs is the standard goldendoodle, a mix between a standard poodle and a golden retriever.

These dogs are social, assured, good-natured, and outgoing—all qualities that make them great companions. 


The greyhound, although being the world's fastest canine, is also one of the kindest and most respectable.

Although greyhounds do shed, they are not heavy shedders and only need to be brushed and bathed on occasion.
