What are the best indoor dog breeds that doesn't shed and are good around kids?



Eventually, we are going to get a dog...my wife grew up with one, and my kids want one. We are going to wait until the kids are responsible enough to care for it (which is soon).

We don't want one that sheds a lot and it must be good around kids...we don't have a big backyard, so big dog may be out of the question.

Boston Terriers are on the short list. Long-haired Dachshund are probably on the short list. What others should we consider?

Poodles. Not the stupid little mini poodles, the medium sized regular poodles. They dont shed and are really good with kids.

I have a toy poodle, he is great, but keep in mind the fact that he will have to be groomed 3 or 4 times a year.

I have a rat terrier that is great around all the kids in the neighborhood. He doesn't shed much and probably weighs 15lbs.

My younger sister(no pics, she is 12) has a King Charles Cavalier. It is one of the best dogs I have ever been around. I would recommend it to anyone who does not have the space for larger dog.

we have a schnauzer. He is great with my daughter. He can go 0-60 mph and back down to 0 in about 4 seconds

I have a dashshund.. If you're going to have one inside (especially a male) get him neutered or else he will pee all over the place.. Mine is a short-haired and he does shed.. Barks a lot too.. I think dachshunds are good for kids they love to play and are relatively healthy dogs in general.

check out a bichon frise. they require grooming, but they don't shed much at all and are hypoallergenic.
