Question Breeds that do/don't shed - anybody know which ones?

A relative of mine has a Toy Poodle...and I think she chose this particular breed for two reasons...

1) she is a senior, and wanted a dog that was easy to care for, and small. She had German Shepherds in the past, and now in her old age, wanted something better suited to a small home as well.

2) because the Toy Poodles (actually Poodles in general) do not shed.She also had a Toy Poodle (whom she dearly loved) in the past.

Personally, I don't have to have a dog that doesn't shed.

So I was just curious as to what breeds are known to be non-shedders.
I already mentioned the Poodle, so what other breeds do not shed?

How does she coordinate her outfits? I wouldn't be fully dressed if I wasn't wearing some Birman and Golden Retriever to properly coordinate.

I think many of the "oodle" mixes are mostly shed-allergy-free too.

My labradoodle doesn't shed a lot, about the same as my wife , but a significant proportion do in the F1 generation do shed more. Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles are much more non shedding.

Well I have two whippets.. they do shed a little bit, but not so that youd notice as they have lovely short haired coats.

Thank you to everyone who has posted breeds so far!

Question : do non-shedding breeds typically have "hair" or "fur"?

Agree re poodles not shedding - Irish Water Spaniels are also non-shedding - BUT - Jake has been known to 'blow his coat' if he is suffering from stress.

I've talked to Vets at length about non-shedding designer breeds, e.g. labradoodles, etc., and it really depends upon which gene is more prominant. If you really need a non-shedding dog for health reasons (allergies, asthma etc.,) you should think carefully about 'designer breeds'.

In addition, it isn't always the coat/hair which causes allergies, it can be the dander (skin) - some people have a problem with poodles too.

Did someone mention them already?
