Allergies – what can be worse? Especially when you’re a kid!
For most of us, our childhood and our first pet (be it a dog or a cat) are inseparable. You can’t even imagine happy childhood days without your fluffy friend by your side. That’s why it can be one of the most heartbreaking things for a child – to not being able to have a dog due to allergy. It’s less traumatic for an adult, but still a great disappointment. Happily, there is a way out and it’s not ‘you just have to deal with the allergy’. No, what you need is a hypoallergenic dog!
So, these dogs will cause zero allergic reaction?
Technically, no dog is really hypoallergenic. As it turns out, according to the U.S. Humane Society, no breed is 100% hypoallergenic, there simply are some breeds that tend to cause much less trouble for allergic people. Now, we don’t really care much about these technical nuances, do we? The main question is – are they cute and awesome? And the answer is – yes, they certainly are!
Here are the top 3 most popular ‘hypoallergenic’ breeds out there:
These are the champions of hypoallergenic dogs. Not only are they sweet and nice, but they also come in a variety of sizes and coloring. The range is so vast that you will definitely find a perfect match for you. Being very intelligent – these are great companions, especially for kids. What makes them an even greater choice for kids is that they are not huge, aggressive predators. So you can get a great pet without compromising anything.
I bet that at least half of the people out there didn’t even know this is a real thing. Turns out, it actually is. The mix of a Labrador and a Poodle is exactly what you’d expect it to be – super friendly, good looking and fluffy. This is the quintessence of a dog for a person who has been allergic to them. There is no other way around it – they are adorable, you get the best of both breeds, and not to mention these dogs are perfect for people with allergies.
- Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier
Wheatens, as they are generally called, have really cool soft coats which actually resemble hair (making them look as gorgeous as women in shampoo commercials). It barely sheds which helps avoid any allergic reactions. These dogs are especially celebrated for their character. They are excellent companions for small kids and are considered to be a perfect family dog.
There are a number of other awesome dogs out there that are believed to be hypoallergenic.
Looking from the point of view of those who crave for dogs most – children – we thought that these 3 breeds represent the best to suit your kids. While none of them are assured to cause no allergic reactions, sometimes, it is a trouble worth going through. Nothing can compare to the experience of a truly great, devoted dog for you or your child.
