Some breeds of cute, fluffy dogs are the toy American Eskimo dog, the Pomeranian, the toy poodle, the miniature poodle, the Bolognese, the Pekingese, the Japanese spitz, the Bichon Frise and the Coton de Tulear. These dogs are considered companion or toy dogs.

Among the cutest and fluffiest dogs are the bichon group. Both the Bichon Frise and the Coton de Tulear have thick, double coats that are often pure white. The fur can be kept long but is often trimmed in a way that gives the dog a fluffy, cottony look.

The coat of any fluffy dog needs a great deal of grooming. Fur around the eyes and the ears often needs to be clipped to keep it from matting. The eyes may need to be cleaned to prevent the fur from being stained. These dogs also benefit from being professionally groomed once a month or so. It may also be a good idea to bathe the dog at the same time, though some dogs can be cleaned with a dry shampoo. After the bath, some dogs can tolerate a blow dryer while others may be frightened by it. Shedding and allergies are other considerations. Though the Bichon Frise doesn't shed, other fluffy dogs like the Pomeranian shed all the time.
