Have you always wanted a dog but couldn't get one because of your allergies? Well, we have created a list of allergy safe dogs that is just for you.
Allergy Safe Dogs
Dogs for People with Allergies
Are you allergic to dogs? If so, you may yearn for an allergy safe dog companion but feel there is no way you can be a dog owner. Contrary to popular belief there are some dogs that don’t aggravate allergies. They are perfect for anyone who has allergies or sensitivity to dog hair or dander. One of the most popular breeds of dog is the Poodle. Poodles come in sizes from toy to standard, and are one of the most intelligent dogs found anywhere. They don’t shed, and don’t aggravate dog allergies.
Another good choice for people with allergies is the Schnauzer. This dog comes in Miniature, Standard and Giant size. These dogs have wiry coats that are also non-irritating to allergies. These dogs, like poodles, require periodic grooming to keep their coats in good shape.
The Kerry Blue Terrier has a soft coat that is not wiry, yet does not shed much and is known to be a solution for those who are allergic to dogs.
Another breed to consider is the elegant and adorable Maltese. The Maltese has a coat that grows long, silky fur but rarely sheds. Maltese dogs also don’t have much dander.
Chinese crested hairless dogs are also ideal for people with dog allergies. These dogs aren’t the most beautiful canine in the world but they have their own special charm.
If you want a small dog like a Chinese crested or Maltese you might also like the Bichon Frise. These little white dogs have puffy coats that require frequent grooming but don’t shed or produce a lot of dander either.
The best thing for someone with pet allergies to do is to research the breed that they want, then visit these dogs to ensure that they are truly suitable for you.
