Do you suffer from allergies to dogs?
People with allergies to dogs appear to fall into two categories. Either they are allergic to the hair, or the dander/oils on the dog’s skin.
In spite of the fact that some dogs are promoted as being ‘non-shedding’ – ALL dogs shed to some extent. The non-shedding dogs simply keep the shed hair in their coats rather than dropping it all over the house.
So regular brushing of the non-shedding dogs will get rid of this hair and greatly reduce or eliminate the suffering of the allergic owner.
Remember to spend some time at the breeders to test out your allergies before you commit to a particular dog.
According to Native Indian legend,
when a person dies s/he will come to a bridge that leads to Heaven.
At the head of that bridge waits every animal that the person encountered during his/her lifetime. The animals, based upon what they know of the person,
decide which humans may cross the bridge…. and which are turned away.
Dogs that have done well with allergy sufferers are long-haired, short-haired, and hairless!
Here they are:
