Hypoallergenic Dogs

Ever Heard of Hypoallergenic Dogs

Have you heard about hypoallergenic dogs? These dogs are basically meant for people who have trouble being around dogs. Do you start sniffing and sneezing whenever you are around dogs too? If the answer to this question is yes, then you are most probably one of more than ten million people from around the world who have dog allergies. But with hypoallergenic dogs, you no longer have to worry about allergies whenever you crave companionship or love from these cute little four legged friends.

As far as the definition of this term is concerned it basically means having a lower tendency than others to provoke allergic reactions in others. So you could basically say that hypoallergenic dogs are those breeds which are less likely to give people allergies or those which are compatible for people who are suffering from allergies.

The truth of the matter is that every dog carries allergens. They can be found in the hair, saliva, urine, dander, etc. But since there are a few dogs that do not shed or drool as much as others, they are considered as non-allergic dogs. These dogs are an excellent choice for people who are allergic to dogs.

As far as the dog breeds which are considered non-allergenic are concerned, they are:

  1. Affenpinscher
  2. Yorkshire Terrier
  3. Welsh Terrier
  4. Schnauzer
  5. Poodle
  6. Havanese
  7. Dandie Dinmont
  8. Coton de Tulear
  9. Bolognese
  10. Bichone Frise

It is very important for you to remember that not every hypoallergenic dog is the same. That's right, different non-allergic dogs will be suitable for different people and you can't expect all of the dogs mentioned in the above list to have the same non-allergic effect on everyone. That's why it is recommended that if you are thinking about getting any one of the above mentioned dogs, you should spend some time with it in order to determine that you are not allergic to it before buying it. This is pretty much the only way in which you can be sure that you are not allergic to a dog before buying it.
