Breeds of Hypoallergenic Dogs

by Emily Furlongs

may cause you to have fewer allergy attacks because their hair does not shed, they don’t have an undercoat, or they do not a lot dead skin cells, or dander. When looking for a hypoallergenic , you will have to decide on a breed of dog and how the dog will fit into your lifestyle. Many hypoallergenic dogs are or medium breed dogs. This means that they are small sized or medium sized dogs that require more attention than larger breeds. The following breeds of hypoallergenic dogs are popular with those who suffer from allergies: Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Bedlington Terrier, and .

The Irish Water Spaniel

The coats of these hypoallergenic dogs must be maintained through grooming every two months. For those looking for a hypoallergenic dog that is larger than other breeds, the Irish Water Spaniel may be the dog for you. The Irish Water Spaniel is a friendly dog that likes to exercise and swim during the warmer months of the year. These dogs have very short human-like hair that will prevent shedding and allergens from entering the air.

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier

The Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier will need to be groomed as often as other hypoallergenic breeds in order to prevent clumping or rashes on their skin. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is available in four varieties, the Traditional Irish, Heavy Irish, English, and American. The main difference is the size of the dog. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier has a short coat that does not much during the day.

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is very friendly and will always welcome strangers. They enjoy getting their exercise and want to be around people as much as possible. These dogs should not be kept in an apartment. Having a backyard is a must as this dog loves to run and bark. If you are in need of a hypoallergenic dog that is a little larger than most, then this is a dog worth considering.

The Bedlington Terriers

Bedlington Terriers are smaller than the Irish Water Spaniel and Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, but they have short coats which need to be brushed a few times a week to prevent tangling. They will need to be groomed every three or four months in order to maintain a healthy coat. These dogs are energetic and enjoy exercise. For those who are hypoallergenic and who live in apartment buildings or small homes, this dog is perfect.

Hypoallergenic dogs require more grooming than other breeds because they do not most of their hair, it just continues to grow. Not grooming regularly will cause matting, which will have to be cut from the coat in order to prevent skin rashes and other problems. These breeds of hypoallergenic dog are not the only ones you have to choose from. There are other varieties that may appeal to your lifestyle and allergy issues. Smaller dogs are better for apartment living as they tend to less and require less room to move around in. If you own or rent a home, then you may want to consider a larger breed that will be able to run around in the back yard.
