Hypoallergenic dog breeds

Hypoallergenic dog breeds are those touted as being hypoallergenic; that is, provoking fewer allergic reactions in allergy sufferers.

These breeds usually shed less dander and hair and are, therefore, considered hypoallergenic.

However, even hairless dogs can produce enough dander to affect a highly allergic person.
