Shed Happens: Cats and Dogs That Shed the Least and Most

If you’re considering adopting a new pet, check out our list of which cats and dogs shed the most.

Pets are awesome. But, shed happens. So if you’re considering adopting a new fur-ever friend, check out which cats and dogs shed the most, and the least.

The Long and Short of Shedding

Whether your pet has long hair or short hair, both are prone to shedding. Do your research before deciding which breeds best fit your household’s wants and expectations.

Some are seasonal shedders, while others go all year long. While you can’t stop a healthy pet from normal shedding, having a pet comb or brush for regular grooming will help reduce the amount of pet hair in your home.

For any leftover hair, use Swiffer Sweeper Starter Kit. Sweeper’s deep ridges and grooves conform to the surface of your floor to trap and lock away pet hair on all floor surfaces.
