The Benefits of Hypoallergenic Dog Breeds

When you are around a hypoallergenic dog, you won’t run as much of a risk of contracting allergies as if you were around a non-hypoallergenic dog. This isn’t a very big difference but it is quite important at the same time. It is obvious that people who want to own dogs but can’t because of their allergies feel a certain level of frustration. This is where hypoallergenic dogs come in. These dogs don’t spread as much allergens and even though you won’t be able to completely get rid of your allergy attacks, you will definitely be able to reduce them to a tolerable level.

The fur of a regular dog is loose and dense. This results in quite a lot of shedding & their fur even contains a lot of dander. Dander basically comprises of a dogs skin cells and dust particles as well as any other harmful particles which may be flying around in the air. When this dander is shed by the dog, it leads to allergic attacks. These dogs also have thick undercoats which is one of the main causes of shedding and this further traps dander and allergens from around them.

Non-hypoallergenic dogs even salivate excessively. This is yet another reason why people suffer from allergy attacks when around them. It is basically the bacteria found in their saliva which people are allergic to. Unfortunately, these dogs can’t really control the quantity of saliva that they expel. This makes it very difficult for people with allergies to be around them. Even dog urine contains these same bacteria and this makes it even more difficult for allergic people to be around them.

On the other hand, in hypoallergenic dogs, their undercoat is almost absent or quite thin. This makes them very vulnerable to the cold but at the same point of time makes them a great pet for people who are allergic to dogs. These dogs don’t shed too much hair either and all you will need is some slight grooming and these dogs will not be any trouble at all as far as your allergies are concerned. There are even a few hypoallergenic dogs without any hair whatsoever. The skin of these dogs needs a lot of care though.

Some of the most popular hypoallergenic dog breeds include Terriers, Maltese, Schnauzers, the Irish Water Spaniel and the Portuguese Water Dog.
