Shih Tzu

Shih Tzu dogs have double-layered coats that shed on a cycle basis. Hair fallout from them regularly as new strands replace them. You can either brush them every day or have them trimmed regularly and maintain a short hair. However, Shih Tzus tend to look cuter with long hair.

There are two types of Saint Bernards, depending on their coat:

1) those with dense, short coat; 

2) those with a medium, long coat. Regardless, both types shed frequently and require regular brushing.



Pomeranians are among the heaviest shedding toy dog breeds. As early as their fourth month, they will already start shedding. They have thick coats that require utmost attention— brushing, combing, and trimming altogether.

Lhasa Apso

A Lhasa Apso is originally bred in the Himalayas, which explains the undercoat and the outer coat. With its straight, dense, and double-layered coat, a Lhasa Apso is different from other dog breeds. It has a very long hair that grows like human hair to protect itself. However, it requires intense grooming to slow the shedding.

Indian Spitz

Indian Spitz looks like a Pomeranian dog, which is why people often interchange them. There are several differences between the two but they are both heavy shedders. It is similarly disastrous if you do not brush an Indian Spitz frequently. You would just be surprised by the amount of hair on your floor!
