Dog Breeds

One of the best dog breeds for allergy victims



Finding the right pet can be difficult for people with allergies.

Animal lovers who want a dog can find it even more difficult as many popular breeds shed their skin.

We scoured the American Kennel Club website to find the best hypoallergenic dog breeds available.

These breeds reduce the likelihood of dog hair ravaging pet owners with allergies.

The club is an expert in breed, health and training information for dog owners.

Check out some of the best hypoallergenic dog breeds they recommend below.

Afghan dog

The majestic looking Afghan Hounds are perfect for animal lovers with allergies.

The large and slender dogs do not shed their skin much and are loyal and loving companions.

Afghan hounds are often sensitive dogs and require very calm, friendly, and firm training.

Bichon Frize

Bichon Frize is another breed of dog that is perfect for allergy sufferers.

The small breed is a “gentle, happy, playful dog” according to the American Kennel Club.

Bichon’s hair grows continuously but does not shed. Therefore, regular maintenance is important to prevent matting.


All types of schnauzers are suitable for animal lovers with allergies.

Those in the market for a schnauzer can choose from a number of varieties including: miniature, standard, and giant.

Their breed is known for not shedding, but their double coat requires clipping.

Portuguese water dogs are good choices for people with allergies.

However, the breed requires a lot of daily exercise, so dog lovers thinking of getting one should keep this in mind.

The breed is an intelligent and loyal worker, and their waterproof fur does not shed but requires regular maintenance.


Similar to the Schnauzer, the poodle comes in three variants: standard, miniature and toy.

Considered an extremely smart breed, Poodles are also active and need good daily exercise.

Poodles are known for not shedding a lot. They are the perfect pet for dog lovers with allergies.

However, their trademark coat requires regular professional grooming, so this should be considered.
