Default Worst Shedder?

What? I like fluffy dogs. So what do you think the worst shedder is?

For their size: Poms.
GSDs are really surprising for their normal coat length, but by volume a husky is probably a bit worse.

Malamutes maybe, but there are bigger dogs, Newf?

Other votes?

(and yes, the short haired dogs are crazy in their own non- fluffy way)

Kuvasz. I'm not even joking. The eukanuba announcer even acknowledged that they're the worst shedders. The sheer volume is unmatched by ANYTHING I have EVER seen before, and it's year round. It's like giant snowdrifts of dog hair wafting across the house and that's with a wood floor and daily vacuuming.

It's approximately 5 bajillion times worse than a GSD, 9 collies (yes, 9 collies at once, in addition to the GSD) and 4 cats.

I don't even want to imagine it on carpet. *shudders*

Well, we stayed at a friend's house the past few days and she has a short haired Lab mix. At the end of the week, it was *our* dogs' hair making dust bunnies all around the house. So embarrassing. They literally just had a bath and blow out, too. I can sweep our house every other day and it will still look like I haven't touched it a day later. (I refuse to sweep daily.) I've also found hair in our butter tub. Don't know how.

I think the worst dog I've ever had to deal with shedding wise was a border collie/chow mix I dog sat. Black hair EVERYWHERE. The Malamute I had growing up didn't even compare to its furballs.

Although, I don't know if this is confirmation bias or what but people who don't brush their labs/goldens regularly, there is a SMELL, a very specific retrieving breed smell that comes with the coat/shedding and it's pretty gross.

I've met plenty a clean well brushed retriever that didn't smell at all..

but if you work with dogs you know what I mean when I say you KNOW when a pet lab comes in and their owners don't brush it because it's the snowfall of coat, and the smell/greasy feeling on your hands.

so the combo makes it the worst for me.

Our Golden growing up shed a ton, but we never bathed her or brushed her. And she always smelled. After you pet her, you had to wash your hands, gross smell left and oily residue.

I have to say I was shocked at how much the Pugs I used to dogsit shed. Like insane amounts. They were black ones. I would clean the kitchen floor and then like 3 hours later it was halfway covered again!

My uncles Husky was pretty bad- clumps of hair were always everywhere.

Retrievers do have oily coats, and can smell worse when nut brushed regularly, but they're still dust bunny lightweights.

I have more Buster bunnies roaming the house than Ruby ones.

My husky wins. His hair can re coat the floor in hair just as fast as I can brush it up. lol

I've finally gave up on the area around his crate. There will always be clumps of hair around his cage no matter how many times a day I pick them up.
