I think all the dogs I have encountered shed bucket loads of hair!  Some breeds shed less than others, as I understand it, but certainly the long haired breeds will shed hair aplenty.

Poodles are known not to shed hair. There are other dawg species that do not shed either. Mostly these kind of dogs are kept inside for generations already. Maybe that influenced the fact that these dogs don't have a summer fur winter fur cycle
