Well first off the bad news, unfortunately there is no such thing as dogs that don't shed or non shedding dogs - all dogs shed at least a small amount of hair.
Even the so called "non shedding dog breeds" do shed a little hair - much like us humans really. The good news is that there are plenty of great dog breeds (big & small) who shed very little hair.
A few years back I was fortunate enough to have a beautiful Dalmation called Harrison. He was a wonderful dog, a magnificent friend and companion for me and my family. But boy did he shed! Even now, many years after dear old Harry has passed away I find a few of his little black and white hairs lodged in various places. The point is, even though I didn't want a dog which shed lots of hair, I would never give back the time I spent with Harry.
My current dog is a cheeky little Shih Tzu called Macy. Now Shih Tzus are said to be a "non shedding dog" but I still occasionally come across some of her long white hairs around the house. It's no big deal.
