Light shedding and hypoallergenic dogs have been growing in popularity for the past couple of years. Although it is impossible for you to find a fully hypoallergenic dog breed, Homes Alive Pets created a list of some of the breeds you could look at before making the final decision. Below are 5 from that list we think could be good contenders for your new family friend!
We know how hard it is to pick the right breed for you, find the rest of the list at the Homes Alive Pets blog post here.
The Tibetan Terrier, originating from Tibet in China, is proof that not all dogs need to be fur-less to be a hypoallergenic breed. The breed usually has the gentle and affectionate temperament. Although like most dogs they still require regular grooming.
These dogs are well known for their silky white coat. The breed is believed to have originated from Malta and their usual temperament is described as playful and gentle. Their coats need regular grooming and a grooming comb is said to be the best tool to use!
Similar to the Tibetan Terrier, the Shih Tzu was originated from Tibet in China and has grown massively in popularity over the past 5 years. They are the most popular of the hypoallergenic bunch and their fur does not fall out unless poorly looked after. Their temperament is described as clever and lively. The grooming for this breed needs to be consistent with brushing; our groomers at Huggles Pamper Lounge recommend a Small Slicker Brush to groom your dog with at a minimum of once a week.
As the name describes the Brussels Griffon originates from Brussels, Belgium. Their temperament is described as alert and watchful, it is understandable as to why these dogs are mostly known for their watchdog abilities and tendencies. The best combination for this breeds fur is a Bristle brush to work the fur but a medium comb is also recommended.
The breed originated from Australia and was first created in the 1950s, over time the Labrador and Poodle mix has become a popular breed. They are said to have a friendly and loving temperament. However, due to the high shedding of the Labrador breed, it is not always possible to find one hypoallergenic. Although it is a quality that many look for within these breeds. Similar to the others, the best grooming brush recommended by our groomers is a Slicker Brush to help brush out the debris within the fur and to help keep it knot free!
