Best Dogs for Allergies

Questions & Answers

Have questions about the best dogs for allergies? We have answers!

What causes dog allergies?

While mostly any furry critter can cause allergies, we’re most familiar with cat and dog allergies. Dog allergies are triggered by exposure to flakes of dead skin cells, otherwise known as dander. Allergies can also be triggered by dog urine or saliva. Reactions can range from mild to severe, depending on the person.

Can dogs be 100% hypoallergenic? What dogs are good for allergies?

While all dogs have the potential to cause allergies in their human owners, what most people refer to as “hypoallergenic” and dog breeds good for allergies are actually those that have the smallest chance of causing allergies. Hypoallergenic dogs are good dogs for allergies because they shed and drool less, meaning there are fewer opportunities for you to come into contact with allergens.

What is the best dog for allergies?

There are so many options when it comes to the best dogs for people with allergies. Some of our favorites are the Doodle hybrids (Labradoodles, Cockapoos, Goldendoodles, Maltipoos, Cavapoos and more), Schnauzers, Poodles, Yorkshire Terriers and Yorkiepoos, Maltese and Morkies, Havanese, Shih Tzus, and many more dog breeds for people with allergies.

What’s this about Doodles? Are they good dogs for allergies?

Doodles are hybrid breeds created by crossing a Poodle with another breed. Doodles are famous for their curly, minimally shedding coats—making them perfect for allergy sufferers.

How do I know that my puppy will be healthy?

All dogs in the Uptown Puppies Network receive full health checks before they come to your home. These checks cover your pup from nose to tail, including their teeth, eyes, ears, skin, fur and nose, as well as their gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. As always, be sure to verify your pup’s health with your own vet after arrival.

No matter where you are in the country or where your puppy is, the businesses and breeders in our network can help you unite. One of the most common ways families choose to meet their new pal is by air transportation, where your pooch will be flown to any major airport in the US (excluding Hawaii and Alaska).
