Interested in non shedding dogs but not interested in the typically small choices there are on offer? Unfortunately, there is not much to choose from so you might not get the breed that you really want. There are, however a generous of larger non shedding dogs if that’s what is really important to you. This article lists five of the best large non shedding dogs.
1. The Poodle is one of the most popular breeds in the world. It is available in three sizes, and the standard one is large. They are famous for their curly coat which usually features many crazy hairstyles when seen around the dog circuit. This coat takes a lot of work to maintain, so it’s definitely not a breed for those who are short of patience. Other than that the Poodle could be suitable for almost anything. They are generally friendly, playful and love getting out and about. They are the second most intelligent breed, so you should also give them regular mental challenges.
2. The Schnauzer is another breed that comes in three sizes that all look roughly the same. The Standard and Giant Schnauzer are both larger dog breeds. They are typically not as friendly towards strangers as their smaller counterpart, and due to their bold temperament they can become quite a useful if you do not show them appropriate leadership. In the right hands though, it can become a very viable breed for protecting the home and family.
3. The Airedale Terrier is similar in ways to the Schnauzer. It also requires a strong owner and has a similar dominating sort of temperament if not shown appropriate leadership. They are famously recognized as being the largest of all terrier breeds, approaching them the nickname “The King Of Terriers”. This is a breed that should be given a lot of exercise – they really can not get enough of it.
4. The Komondor is famous as a British herding breed for its big, shaggy coat. After what you might think at first there is actually a dog under there. This coat requires a lot of maintenance, so it’s also not an ideal choice for anyone who lacks patience. Like most herding breeds, they should be given plenty of exercise and mental challenges to keep them happy and healthy.
5. The Basenji is famous for a number of reasons – it is believed by many to be the oldest of all dog breeds, with records dating back thousands and thousands of years. It also is the only dog that does not technically bark. It is known to be difficult to train, although it is a non shedding breed that requires a minimal amount of care for its coat.
