There’s something particularly special about large, fluffy dog breeds, despite the fact that all canines are adorable and cuddly. While the cuddliness of these canines is undeniable, it is important to note that their fur serves a function beyond the “cute” factor.
These puppies have an abundance of fur for you to drag your fingertips through, bury your face in, and remove your clothing from.
The Keeshond is a large ball of fluff that requires daily brushing since it is a hybrid of several different breeds of fluffy dogs, including two of the most popular breeds on our list: the Chow Chow and the Samoyed. These square, robust friends originate from the same old lineage as other spitz varieties, such as Pomeranians and Samoyeds, and share their square shape and solid build.
Keeshonden are characterized as being “spitzy” because of their fox-like faces, pointed ears, profuse coats, and plumed tails that are held high over the back. The “spectacles” are a distinctive breed attribute that also happen to be one of the most endearing trademarks in the canine world.
The shadings and patterns that are seen around the eyes of a Kees give the appearance that the creature is wearing high-fashion eyeglasses. The glasses give emphasis to an attentive and intellectual countenance that the wearer possesses.
2. Bearded collie
The bearded collie’s coat is thicker and rests flatter than that of the Keeshond, and it can change color, or “fade,” over the course of their lifetime. This dog had ombré hair before it was fashionable.

3. Alaskan Malamute
These canines are one of the earliest Arctic sled breeds and were bred to assist with long-distance cargo transport. Typically, Alaskan Malamutes are white with either gray, black, or sable (brown or beige fur with black). Their features are white, and they have large, feathery tails.

4. Chow Chow
Which list of dog breeds that are known for their fluffy coats could possibly be considered comprehensive if it did not include the Chow Chow? These dense balls of fur are, of course, heavy shedders that need regular brushing to prevent their coats from bursting into another Chow.

As descendants of Icelandic sled dogs, Pomeranians sport a winter-resistant (and lap-warming) coat. These floor dusters are available in nearly every color, so you can embrace these sprightly fluffs in sable, black, blue, etc.

8. Tibetan Mastiff
This mastiff, considered one of the most expensive breeds, requires regular grooming of its dense, enormous coat. Once a year, they lose their thick winter coat, but when the weather softens, the shedding period can last up to a month.
Consider adopting a Tibetan Mastiff from a rescue or shelter to give a dog a loving home. If you want a Tibetan Mastiff puppy, find a trustworthy breeder. Thoroughly study the breeder to verify ethical methods and dog welfare. Credible Tibetan Mastiff breeders inspect their dogs, care for their offspring, and emphasize their health and temperament. You’ll have a healthy, happy dog and discourage unethical breeding with this active approach.
9. Old English Sheepdog
The Old English Sheepdog, which has a physical appearance that is comparable to that of the bearded collie, was at one time one of the most well-known breeds. In fact, Disney’s The Little Mermaid included an Old English Sheepdog as Prince Eric’s vivacious puppy. I believe that Prince Eric speaks for all of us when he says that we want to be a part of this dog’s world.
The Old English Sheepdog, known to fans as the English Sheepdog, is a large, athletic dog breed with an unmistakable shaggy coat. Historically, this droverhelped farmers drive cattle and sheep to market. Today, this good-natured dog enjoys the comfort of home life and still competes in conformation, obedience, agility, and herding trials.
10. Cairn terrier
It’s possible that the Wicked Witch of the West did not like for Toto, but she probably couldn’t pin her dislike on the fact that he shed. Cairn terriers, of whom Toto from “The Wizard of Oz” is still the most well-known example, are relatively modest shedders, despite the fact that they have fluffy coats.
Even yet, these bright and inquisitive young puppies benefit greatly from a weekly brushing. Cairn Terriers are affectionate dogs who make excellent companions for families and apartment dwellers. However, due to their high intelligence, they may sometimes challenge the limits of their environment.
It’s not always what it seems. Because of his long, silky coat, many people mistake the Havanese for a breed more suited to living in colder climates. On the other hand, Cuba is credited with the development of this well-liked and lovable breed, whose coat serves as a natural defense mechanism against the effects of the sun and heat.
Because they shed very little, Havanese are an excellent option for those who suffer from allergies. However, you will need to groom that lengthy hair on a regular basis. If you do decide to trim a Havanese’s fur, you’ll be happy to know that they are just as adorable with a short cut as they are with a long one!
12. American Eskimo
These medium-sized white puffballs have their roots in Germany, despite their all-American moniker; during World War I, they were given a more patriotic name in an effort to honor the United States. Their longer, more delicate outer coat is helped to seem more fluffy by their shorter, denser undercoat.
These family-friendly and lovable canines have a tendency to shed and need brushing at least once a week, with more frequent sessions required during the shedding season.
13. Australian Shepherd
The Australian Shepherd or “Aussie” has a coat that is straight to slightly wavy and they have a naturally bobbed tail. Aussies come in a variety of colours including blue merle, black, red merle and solid colours with or without white markings. As the puppy begins to age their coat usually becomes darker. Their eyes can be a variety of colours and may differ from each other in colouration.
Australian Shepherds have a waterproof, double-layer coat that tends to shed a fair bit, so regular brushing is recommended. In general, weekly brushing sessions will suffice, but twice a year they shed heavily due to seasonal changes in the weather, and more work will be required at these times. During shedding season an undercoat rake can be used every two or three days to remove the abundant dead hair, followed by a clean up with a wire brush.
The Akita is a heavy, muscular dog of ancient Japanese lineage with an imposing stature and alert appearance. A Spitz-type dog, they have a dense coat that comes in several colours, including white, erect ears and a full, curled-over tail.
They are double coated and their undercoat is thick and warm, coupled with medium length top coat. Their profuse coat sheds heavily twice a year but they also drop hair regularly right throughout the year. They don’t require extensive grooming, but their thick, luxurious double coat should be brushed at least once a week to look its best. Akitas tend to be clean and have little “doggy odour”.
The Newfoundland is a giant, very muscular, strong, handsome dog that is equipped with a heavy, double coat. Newfoundlands are closely related to the English Mastiff and the St. Bernard and share the physical characteristics that are hallmarks of these breeds; thick bones, a strong muscular build and big bull-like heads.
Being so big, there is a lot of fluffiness to cuddle and love! On the downside, the heavy coat requires thorough brushing at least once a week to remove loose hair and prevent mats from forming. These will become daily sessions during shedding season, which generally occurs twice a year; however, spayed and neutered “Newfs” shed year-round and will need to be brushed out several times a week.
Every person who like fluffy dogs is sure to find a dog breed that suits their preferences.
