There are certain situations where it’s ok and actually preferred to have more fluff.

For example:

More fluff on your peanut butter and marshmallow sandwich? Yes! 

More fluff for your favorite pillow—Please!

More fluff all over your black dress pants—No, thank you! 

Fortunately, regular bathing and grooming can keep even the most fluffy furballs at bay. Here are the top six poofy purebreds. 

Bichon Frise: Often compared to a cotton ball due to its curled double coat, the Bichon Frise is a cheerful, gentle dog that requires regular exercise. The Bichon’s hair grows continually and doesn’t shed, so it requires extensive grooming to prevent mats.

Chow Chow: The Chow Chow is independent with a cat-like personality and is known for its blue/black tongue and lion-like appearance. Regular grooming and bathing is a must to maintain the double coat.

Keeshond: The Keeshond is affectionate and good-natured. This breed tends to learn quickly and is energetic, requiring daily exercise. Keeshonds also need to be brushed daily.

Great Pyrenees: The Great Pyrenees is an intelligent dog with excellent scenting ability and sight. They are affectionate with family but possess the instinct to guard and protect. They have a thick, weather resistant white coat that requires brushing at least once a week.

Tibetan Mastiff: Tibetan Mastiffs are extremely intelligent and independent. They are very protective of their family and property as they were bred to be guardians. They have an immense double coat that sheds once a year and requires regular brushing.

Collie (Rough coat): The Collie is a devoted family dog and gets along very well with children. They are loyal, affectionate, and need daily walks. The rough-coated Collie has a massive coat that sheds and requires regular brushing.
