Posted by Nadezhda Robinson on

Love dogs but can’t be around them without a sneezing frenzy? Then hypoallergenic dogs might be the key to housing a new furry friend. Having a dog that doesn’t shed its coat reduces the chance of you having an allergic reaction, meaning more cuddles - simple maths really.

Poodles

Poodles are considered the best hypoallergenic dogs - despite their incredibly fluffy fur! Most people do not have any reactions to this dog breed due to their non-shedding coat. They have a single layer coat of fur, which differs from most dogs. 

Yorkshire Terriers

Maltese

However, these dogs do require more grooming than others, ensure to wash your dog regularly using a detangling dog shampoo, leaving your dog with luxuriously soft fur.

African Basenji

Taking Care of your Hypoallergenic dog:

As most hypoallergenic dogs moult hair minimally, they are often very low maintenance (unless they’re one for fancy hairstyles). Regular brushing of your dog spreads oil throughout the fur, ensuring a healthy coat. Washing your pet with a mild dog shampoo softens their hair and regulates fungal and bacterial issues that can arise.
