Are doodles
hypoallergenic?

Doodles are usually hypoallergenic, but that’s not the same as non-allergenic. Hypoallergenic means having a decreased tendency to provoke an allergic response. There are NO non-allergenic dogs (meaning a dog that does not produce an allergic response). 

 

There are so many different causes for allergies that it would be impossible to breed a totally hypo-allergenic dog. People who are allergic to dog saliva will be allergic to all dogs. People with other types of dog allergy, however, have found a high level of tolerance with certain breeds, such as the Poodle. This has traditionally been linked with the lack of coat shedding of these breeds. Recent thinking, however, suggests that the ‘dander’ free skin of these dogs is more responsible for the high tolerance level. Dander is the term for skin flakes found in animal hair and fur coats.

In our experience people with mild allergies haven’t been affected by our puppies. If you have questions we would suggest doing a t-shirt test, prior to adopting one.

Do doodles shed?

All dogs will shed, but where doodles have one parent at least who carries the non-shedding genes it will be greatly reduced. Doodles have hair instead of fur, which gives then that wonderful teddybear look, this means it’s usually just stray hairs here and there, that you will see, much like human hair shedding, rather than fur shedding that you would see in a Cavalier, Bernese, Golden Retriever, Great Pyrenees etc.
