No, they are hypo-allergenic. I have three Portuguese Water dogs and none of them shed. You do have to brush them frequently or there hair mats. This might be why yours is shedding bc it needs groomed. These dogs are high maintenance and require grooming every couple months.

We have had/still have 5 PWD's. None have ever shed. We do need to brush and have coats cut on a regular basis. Never heard of one that the hair is falling out in clumps. I would get to a vet ASAP.
