Most dogs have wonderfully soft fur.
You can find out here which four-legged friends are blessed with a particularly fluffy fur coat.
1 / 18The Samoyed is not only very similar to a polar bear visually.
The dog breed feels particularly comfortable as a sled dog in the cold season.
How practical that his fluffy fur keeps him warm.
2 / 18The Old English Sheepdog, also known as Bobtail, is not only known for its lush coat.
Thanks to his friendly and adventurous character, he has many fans among dog lovers.
3 / 18A blue tongue and golden-brown, thick fur: The Chow Chow may look like a child's drawing of a lion - but he still has a lot of self-confidence.
Good to know: Its roots have been proven to go back well over 1,000 years.
Chow Chows are therefore considered to be so-called dogs of the original type.
4 / 18The Coton de Tuléar is an extremely rare dog breed.
His fur is cuddly soft - he is not called a cotton dog for nothing.
Regular grooming is a must to keep his fur velvety and clean.
5 / 18As its name suggests, the Finnish Lapphund loves the cold of its homeland.
His lush fur protects him optimally from the cold.
However, the effort required to care for his fur is limited: brushing once or twice a week is usually enough to keep his fur supple.

6 / 18The stately Pyrenean mountain dog (also known as Chien de Montagne des Pyrénées) is one of the largest dog breeds in the world with a height of up to 80 centimeters at the withers.
Its fluffy fur makes it appear even more impressive than it already is.
His hair protects him from ice and cold in his homeland, the mountains.
Regular, intensive grooming is particularly important for the Pyrenean Mountain Dog.
7 / 18With its fluffy fur, the Barbet is a real eye-catcher.
His long curls occasionally form cords and are often shorn in the summer.
The Barbet, which means “bearded” in German, owes its name to the fur beard on its nose and chin.
8 / 18The Löwchen, also called Petit Chien Lion, is so called primarily because of its typical clipping, which is reminiscent of a lion with a majestic mane: While the silky fur on the front half of the body remains standing, it is clipped short from the waist down.
The fur also remains long around the pasterns and at the tip of the tail.

9 / 18The poodle, no matter what size, is not only considered extremely intelligent - its curly, fluffy fur also causes amorous sighs.
With enough care it stays beautiful and shiny.
Since it sheds little to no fur, it is often described as particularly allergy-friendly.
10 / 18 Visually not dissimilar to the poodle, the Bichon Frisé also impresses with the good tolerability of its soft, fluffy fur.
However, regular care of his cute curls is essential.
11 / 18His silver-gray fur with black hair tips is reminiscent of the drawing of a wolf.
That's why its name is particularly fitting: the Wolfspitz loves being outside and is ideally equipped for it thanks to its thick fur.
It is easy to care for and is not prone to matting or knotting.
Regular brushing is enough in the case of this breed of dog.
Another plus point: The fur of the Wolfspitz (also called Keeshond) has very little odor.

12 / 18The combination of the fluffy dog breeds Chow Chow, Wolfsspitz and Samoyed results in... that's right, the Eurasier.
The beautiful four-legged friend not only captivates dog lovers with his cuddly fur.
Connoisseurs also appreciate its sensitive nature: the Eurasier has a keen sense of human moods and forms a close bond with its humans.
13 / 18With its long, fluffy fur, the Newfoundland is reminiscent of a giant teddy bear.
As a water rescue dog, however, his thick fur coat comes in handy: it protects him from icy water temperatures.
14 / 18 The long-haired version of the collie became famous in the 1940s through the TV dog Lassie.
Long-haired collies more than live up to their name: their lush fur is very long, especially around the neck and tail.
15 / 18The Pomeranian, also known as the Pomeranian, is one of the most popular dog breeds.
Could that be because of his cuddly fur?
Regular brushing, ideally twice a week, is mandatory for this plush dog breed.

16 / 18The Bouvier des Flandres, also known as the Flemish Cattle Dog, Vlaamse Koehund or affectionately Bouv, is characterized by its dark fur coat.
His characteristic full beard on his chin and mustache on his upper lip earned him the nickname “Vuilbaard,” or “Dirty Beard,” in his native Belgium.

17 / 18The Alaskan Malamute comes from the icy north.
Accordingly, he is equipped with a warm, soft fur coat.
He's basically the definition of a big, fluffy dog.
Although its coat is easy to care for, the Alaskan Malamute sheds heavily.
Regular brushing is therefore useful - especially when changing fur in spring and autumn.
18 / 18The Shetland Sheepdog, also called Sheltie, is a real outdoorsman.
Even if you don't notice it at first glance, the Sheltie loves to be out and about in wind and weather.
His long, fluffy fur protects him from the cold.
If you try to scold your dog: You evil, malicious, little, sweet, fluffy darling, cuddly smooch... here you have a treat.

Fluffy dog breeds – four useful tips for grooming
1. First, get the right equipment.
With a suitable brush and comb you can untangle long hair inside out and untangle matted fur more easily.
2. If you are the proud owner of a particularly fluffy dog, do him a big favor with daily brushing sessions.
Not only do you prevent lumps from forming, but you also promote blood circulation in the skin.
Regular brush strokes also keep your four-legged friend's coat shiny and supple.
3. A nourishing bath with a mild shampoo ensures that skin cells and excess hair are gently removed.
Afterwards, the fur can be easily untangled with a wide-toothed comb.
4. A smooth brush will help you gently comb tangles out of the fur if any should form.
By the way: A visit to a dog groomer is particularly worthwhile for the particularly fluffy fur breeds.
