Non-shedding dog breeds

While they are only conditionally suitable for allergy sufferers, you should definitely get to know them anyway.

To this day, he is considered man's best friend - the dog. Thus, he takes an important role in very many families and is considered a permanent as well as full-fledged family member. Since however in the today's time ever more humans allergies develop, should be paid attention before the acquisition of a dog, which dog race loses little fur and is suitable thus for Allergiker. Should a dog allergy exist, it can lead to undesirable health conditions. These allergic reactions include coughing, sneezing as well as watery eyes. In worse cases even shortness of breath can be the consequence. If such an allergy or intolerance exists, this does not mean that it is triggered in all dog breeds.

As different as the intolerance are of course also the non-shedding dog breeds. Not every dog that sheds little to no hair is suitable for allergy sufferers. And not every person who chooses a dog breed that sheds little of its coat is also an allergy sufferer. The reasons can be very different. If we now get a dog that loses little or no fur, we do not have to remove so many hairs from the sofa or our clothes. Furthermore, the house cleaning with such a dog breed turns out more sparse, because by the few hairs must also be vacuumed less or the clothes depilated.
