It’s called training. Regardless of the breed, if you take the time to properly train your dog, you won’t have issues with them taking off in you. Find a dog that fits your lifestyle and TRAIN it.

Pittie? I have no experience with them as i’m in england and they are banned (stupid laws) but have an english staffordshire bullterrier and apparently fur wise they are similar and my dog literally doesn’t shed at all!! My Fiance has dog allergies and he doesn’t react to him unless he gets slobbered on as the fur and skin shed is minimal. And he can off road like anything you could stick him up a mountain and he’d be fine but he’s a medium sized dog. Also put a vote in for any sort of rescue! My boys a rescue and he’s fantastic! Maybe foster? Good way to test run having a dog as a couple and check what style of dog works for your lifestyle. We fostered but kept him as honestly it was love at first site!

Go to a shelter and adopt one. They come in all varieties to choose from, and you would be saving a life. I personally love and prefer mutts, but you can find pure-bred dogs in shelters, too. Don’t forget to spay or neuter!

we have a whoodle- she’s a standard poodle- wheaten terrier mix- she’s about 55 lbs, non shedding- and a love bug! She’s also very athletic. We love her!! If you want a non shedder- anything bread with a poodle is going to be your best bet- and they are super smart!

MinnieMouse91:  A goldendoodle!! They are very smart, cute, non-shedding and hypoallergenic, and seriously have the best personalities. And a doodle would totally fit with what you want – large, non-shedding, athletic, sociable (no “prey-drive” that I’ve ever seen). Now I may be a a bit biased (there are FIVE in my family!), but everyone I meet who owns or knows one, loves them.

Here’s my boy, Fozzie. He’s the sweetest, most loveable guy ever. Gets along with everyone and was a dream to train. Get one 🙂

Also! I’ve seen a ton of personality types with pibbles. Some are gogogogo but I’ve met some really docile, quiet ones too. Go meet some! Nothing beats a pibble smile!!

Rhodesian Ridgeback …. my husband has had one since before we met & I’ve never met a dog as smart, who acts like a human, & is so incredibly friendly & great with anyone including kids.

A portuguese water dog might suit your needs. Although I doubt you’ll find one in a shelter as they aren’t very common.

I have a great dane who Is a total couch potato at home and super energetic on walks and during outside time.  They are big babies.  Shedding is not what I would consider a lot of hair but some does come off, mostly during spring and fall. Overall great dog to own.
