All types of dog breeds require some form of grooming and maintenance, but there are some that require much less because they shed less or practically not at all. A dog’s coat has two kinds of hair with the outer coat usually consisting of coarser hairs while the inner coat consists of softer, shorter hairs. Once these hairs have grown to their pre-determined length, they stop growing and are shed by new hairs growing in. Some dog breeds shed twice per year, other shed throughout the year, and some dogs hardly shed their coats at all.
