Even though there are no 100% hypoallergenic dog breeds, some types of dogs are suitable for allergy sufferers or those with sensitivities. Due to the fact that mainly flying dog hairs are responsible for the distribution of the allergens on them, the coating structure of a dog suitable for people with allergies is of particular importance. The less hair a dog loses, the better.
Although some dogs have relatively little hair (such as Great Danes), they are hardly suitable for allergy sufferers because they drool excessively – and thus distribute the dog allergens.
It is also impossible to say in general terms that short-haired dogs are more suitable than long-haired ones. Often the opposite is the case because on the one hand allergens of short-haired dogs can easily be more aggressive, on the other hand, short hairs are often more difficult to remove than long ones.
