Questions & Answers
When people talk about small or big dogs that dont shed and hypoallergenic dogs, they’re often talking about the same thing. Most dog allergies are caused by tiny pieces of dead skin that you come in contact with as your dog sheds fur. That means usually, the less a dog sheds, the more hypoallergenic it will be.
Animal dander isn’t the only cause of dog allergies, although it is the most common. Saliva and urine can also trigger allergies in sensitive owners. What’s more, some people are more susceptible than others to pet allergies. While many breeds are great for allergy sufferers, bear in mind that some people are just more likely to suffer allergies than others.
There are several steps you can take to minimize your allergies, whether you have a high-shedding dog or even low shedding dog breeds. Frequent grooming and bathing is the secret to minimizing animal dander in your home. Also, be sure to keep your pup off of the couch and bed to avoid prolonged contact with allergens.
Responsible breeders attempt to pass down desirable traits to all of their puppy litters from generation to generation. Breeds known for their non-shedding or minimally shedding coats (such as Schnauzers, Poodles, Yorkshire Terriers, Doodles and more) should be bred to pass down these traits as well.
If you suffer from dog allergies but love dogs, non shedding dog breeds (or even low shedding dogs) may very well help with your allergies. The less a dog sheds, the less animal dander there will be to trigger your allergies. Bear in mind that if you have very severe pet allergies, ALL dogs shed at least a little!

The fun is just beginning. After you pick your perfect puppy, your pup’s breeder will be available to keep you up to date on all of the important details—like your dog’s health check, current diet, travel arrangements and more.

Businesses and breeders in our network are required to provide nose-to-tail puppy health checks. These examinations thoroughly look at your dog’s eyes, teeth, mouth, ears, skin, fur, and his or her gastrointestinal, respiratory and cardiovascular systems. As always, be sure to check with your own vet ASAP to confirm your pup’s health once they arrive.
After deciding on your perfect puppy, you’ll be able to arrange transportation with your chosen breeder. Different businesses and breeders may offer different transportation methods. For big dogs that don't shed, one of the easiest and most common ways to get your new pooch is by picking them up at the nearest airport (available outside of Alaska and Hawaii).
