Hypoallergenic Dog Breeds

Hypoallergenic dog breeds are those that can lessen allergies in humans. Animal allergies are usually caused from pet dander which is increased from dogs with long and thick coats. For people with extreme allergies, even hypoallergenic dog breeds will not be enough. Some examples of these breeds are single-coated dogs such as Poodles, Schnauzers, and many of the Terrier breeds. Hairless breeds like the American Hairless Terrier, are also good choices for those will animal allergies.

Pet dander is the shedding of skin scales, which is what usually irritates people’s allergies the most. Some breeds, like Cocker Spaniels and Irish Setters shed their skin every three to four days, compared to the single-coated breeds listed above, that shed their skin scales about every 21 days. Long haired dogs can also cause problems for allergy sufferers, since dust, pollen, and mold can collect in their coats and be spread throughout the house.
