    LARGE breed non-shedding dogs

    I am thinking about getting a large non shedder. My husband is so allergic to our 2 dogs we have now. Our next dog should be a hypo-allergenic one, I think. My dogs now are 3 and 11, so it may be a while before I get another dog, but I was just wondering about what kid to get. A Bouvier or a Standard Poodle, or a Giant Schnauzer. Are there any other big non-shedders you know of?

    Portuguese Water Dog

    The Portuguese Water Dog is a lively, fun-loving dog who is gaining popularity because of his nonshedding coat. The dog is adaptable to any living situation--city or country--as long as he gets enough exercise. He is loaded with energy and doesn't tire easily. He is highly trainable, and water, of course, is his favorite place to play.

    That is the description on the AKC web site.

    The airedale terrier is large and is non-shedding although it does require regular stripping to keep the coat in order.

    If you want something done ask a busy person to do it.

    Weiaraners are perfect for you if you want a large non-shedding dog, I have 2 right now. They are the best dogs I have ever had and far by the easiest to train.
