How To Find And Choose The Right Hypoallergenic Dog For You

Aug 28, 2007
If you are looking to get a dog that is less likely to cause allergies look for the hypoallergenic dogs. These dogs since they tend to be smaller, will need more attention then other dogs. These dogs won't cause you to have allergies as bad as the other dogs you may have because they do onot shed and don't have undercoats. These dogs are dogs are very well liked by those that commonly suffer from allergies and are hypoallergenic: Irish Water Spaniel, Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, and Bedlington Terrier.

If you are one of those looking for a larger breed of hypoallergenic dogs the water spaniel will do. This breed has short hair and doesn't shed hair so they should be ok. If you were to get one of these dogs you would have to keep up with its coat and brush it every once and a while.

There are four main types of Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, the Traditional Irish, Heavy Irish, English, and American. The difference in each of these dogs is their sizes range. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier has a short coat that does not shed much during the day. These dogs as well as any other dogs will need to be brushed to prevent rashes and such. This breed is a very good dog and they will be nice to anyone. They love to run outside and be around people inside the house as well. These dogs are not the best if you live in a condo or apartment, so you may need to move because they will love it if you get a house with a big backyard. This is the breed of dog if you are looking at these types of dogs.

For a smaller breed you may want to consider the Bedlington Terriers which are more diminutive than the Irish Water Spaniel and Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier; they have shorter coats so they will need a good brushing every week to maintain a healthy coat. To insure a healthy coat you will need to either be able to groom your dog or take them and have them groomed.

These types are not the only hypoallergenic breeds that you can choose from there are many other breeds that will not aggravate your allergies at all. If you live in a small condo than you might just be considering to get a smaller dog. On the other hand if you are looking to buy a home then you can get one of these larger breeds of dogs. These dogs will need to be brushed to maintain their healthy coat because unlike other dogs they don't shed their coats. So if you get one be sure to take good care of it and feed it the right mixture of foods and be sure to exercise them too.
