If you want to get a dog in your house despite your allergy, you should make sure that your four-legged friend has as little hair as possible, since a large part of the allergens reach the air we breathe via the coat.
Contrary to the common assumption that short-haired dogs have less hair, they lose significantly more fur than their long-haired counterparts -, especially in spring and autumn.
How many hairs the dog loses, however, is not the only criterion for whether the dog is suitable for allergy sufferers. It is assumed that some dog breeds have a comparatively low number of allergens and are therefore generally better tolerated than others.
The origin of this special breeding from Labrador and Poodle was the desire for a guide dog suitable for allergy sufferers.
The Labradoodle is a cross between a Labrador and a poodle. The background of this breeding was the wish for an allergy-friendly, smart dog.
Most people assume that dog hairs are responsible for an allergic reaction. But this is only partly true. The actual trigger is (in principle completely harmless) proteins that are found in saliva, skin scales, and urine.
