Why Boston Terriers don’t Shed a lot of Hair?

The reason why Boston Terriers don’t shed a lot of hair is that they have a short single coat. Boston Terriers are also considered one of the hypoallergenic dog breeds. If you think you are allergic to dogs, Boston Terriers might be the breed of dogs that you would want to get.

Usually, the dogs shedding is a natural way of removing dead hair. It eliminates dead hair to allow a new coat to come in for seasonal changes in temperature. But because Boston Terriers are indoor dogs, Boston Terriers are shielded from the extreme temperatures, which causes their natural body regulation to get thrown off balance. Every time Boston Terriers are going outside, their bodies registers a change in the temperature and they continue to shed. This is why Boston Terriers do shed all year long.
