Dog Breeds Ideal For People With Allergies


Poodles are a top choice for allergy sufferers thanks to their tight curly coat that doesn't shed and produces less dander. 

Bichon Frise

The Bichon Frise is a virtually non-shedding breed perfect for those allergic to dogs. Their hair-like fur must be groomed often.

Portuguese Water Dog

Portuguese Water Dogs shed minimally with their tight curls and are safe for most with allergies.

Miniature Schnauzer 

Miniature Schnauzers have a wiry, low-shedding coat that needs frequent grooming to remove dander. 

Brussels Griffon

Brussels Griffons have thick rough coats that trap dander instead of releasing it airborne to trigger allergies.


The long, silky white hair of Maltese dogs rarely sheds and may not trigger symptoms in some.

Afghan Hound

Afghan Hounds require daily grooming to control shedding and saliva that can aggravate allergies. Their long hair helps trap dander.
