Questions & Answers
Usually, pet allergies are caused by exposure to animal dander (flakes of dead skin). Although any furry animal can cause allergies, we’re most familiar with dog and cat allergies. Allergic reactions can also be set off by contact with dog saliva or urine. Allergies can be slight, or sometimes severe—which is why small hypoallergenic puppies for sale are so popular.
There’s no such thing as a truly “hypoallergenic” dog in the sense that ALL dogs can trigger allergies in people who are severely allergic. Usually when people say “hypoallergenic” they are talking about dogs that are better for allergy sufferers, meaning they shed less fur and dander (or drool less).
There are actually loads of breeds that are great for allergy sufferers. Some family favorites include Miniature Schnauzers, Bichon Frise, Shih Tzus, Toy Poodles, West Highland White Terriers, Cavapoos, Maltipoos, Havanese, Maltese, Yorkshire Terriers, Yorkiepoos, Micro Labradoodles and Micro Goldendoodles.
Whether you’re looking for hypoallergenic dogs small or large, you still have tons of options. Poodles, and many Doodle breeds such as Labradoodles, Cockapoos, Goldendoodles, Bernedoodles, Aussiedoodles and more. Keep in mind that some disreputable breeders may list their Doodles as “non-shedding” when they actually aren’t—just one more reason to trust breeders in the Uptown Network instead.
Whether you have an allergy-friendly pet or not, there are steps you can take to reduce your exposure to allergens. Bathing your dog regularly can help get rid of dander, as can washing your dog’s bedding, toys, leash, etc. Also be sure to keep your dog off the couch and bed, or other areas where you spend a lot of time in one place.
Meeting your new dream pup couldn’t be easier. Different breeders and businesses in the Uptown Network offer different options for bringing home your puppy.
