Best Dogs for Kids that Don't Shed

Questions & Answers

Have questions about kid friendly dogs that don't shed? We have answers!

Are the best dogs for kids that don't shed also hypoallergenic?

When you’re talking about the best small dog for kids no shedding (dogs that are easy on allergies) and non-shedding dogs, you’re usually talking about the same breeds. Pet allergies are usually caused by dander—tiny pieces of dead skin that come attached to shed hair or fur. The less a dog sheds, the less likely they are to trigger your allergies.

Can I still get allergies from kid friendly dog breeds that don't shed?

While dog dander is the main cause of pet allergies in humans, it isn’t the only one. Some people are also sensitive to saliva and urine. Additionally, some owners may be more sensitive than others to these allergens. If you own a hypoallergenic dog, your odds of suffering from allergies are lower—but not totally eliminated.

How can I minimize allergies if I have a high-shedding dog?

Regardless of whether you have a hypoallergenic superstar like a Poodle or a tumbleweed monster like a Husky, there are steps you can utilize to minimize your allergies. The most effective step is also the easiest—grooming. Regularly grooming and bathing your pooch means less hair (and dander) floating around your house.

Will all puppies shed the same? What are the best small dogs that don't shed and are good with kids?

Good breeders always try to maintain the same traits in their dogs throughout litters, including coat type. This can be an issue when you choose a disreputable breeder—that puppy you assumed was a non-shedding Goldendoodle actually sheds like crazy! Luckily, you never have to worry about being scammed by unethical breeders at Uptown.

If I have allergies, should I get kid friendly non shedding dogs?

Even the most severe dog allergy sufferers can find relief by choosing a non-shedding dog. Many of the top non-shedding breeds are also great for kids, too! Remember, the less your pooch sheds, the less likely you are to suffer from allergies—and the less severe your allergies may be with the best dog for kids no shedding.

What are some of the best non shedding dogs for kids?

You’re in luck—many of the world’s most popular non-shedding dogs are also the best for kids! These breeds include all Doodle hybrids (Cockapoos, Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, Bernedoodles, Cavapoos, Maltipoos, Yorkiepoos, Aussiedoodles and more) plus Poodles, Schnauzers, Yorkshire Terriers and many more.

The problem is that these puppies are going fast—it’s common to see litters listed one morning to be fully adopted the next day.

What happens after I choose my new best friend?

Once you’ve found your perfect puppy, your dog’s breeder will always be available to answer important questions and keep you current on milestones in your pup’s life (such as health checks, your puppy’s diet, upcoming travel arrangements and more). Of course, you’ll be able to speak with your breeder directly at any time.

Why shouldn’t I bring home a shelter dog when looking for non shedding small dogs good with kids?

We fully support animal shelters, and adopting a shelter dog is the best choice for some families. When you’re looking for a great dog for kids that also doesn’t shed, adopting a shelter dog usually comes with the risk that you don’t know exactly where your dog is coming from (and whether or not they’re truly hypoallergenic).

How do I know that my puppy will be healthy?

Both breeders and businesses in the Uptown Puppies network are required to provide comprehensive, nose-to-tail checks for all puppies. These health checks thoroughly examine your puppy’s cardiovascular, respiratory and circulatory systems—as well as their fur, skin, teeth, mouth, eyes, ears and more.

How does transportation work?

Once you’ve settled on the best non shedding dog for kids, you might be wondering how transportation works. Easy! One of the most common ways families choose to receive their puppy is by airport pickup—most breeders and businesses in our network can easily arrange air transport of your puppy to major airports in the Continental US.
