If you’re one of millions of people around the world who suffer from pet allergens, we can help! Though, there are many breeds that claim their coats to be hypoallergenic, no one dog is truly allergen free. Most people who suffer with dog allergies aren’t even affected by the fur they’re affected by the dander, which are little bits of shedding skin. This dander can also be mixed with other protein allergens found in a dogs saliva or fecal matter and can be spread throughout the surrounding environment.
Before becoming discouraged, it is best to start off with an allergy test provided by your doctor. This will help to identify if you have mild, moderate or severe allergies and target what really is affecting you. As an example, some tests may show that you are only allergic to a protein that is found in male dogs.
There are many loveable dog breed options available in the “hypoallergenic” family that range from big and strong to small and cuddly and from guard dog to lap dog. Here is a list of some of the most popular.
