Please tell a friend about Carole's Doggie World:


The American Kennel Club's list of dog breeds for people with allergies

plus 23 other breeds as well

Fortunately for all those dog-loving but allergic people out there, there are quite a few breeds that don't shed a lot and consequently spread less dander. Although the American Kennel Club (AKC) does not endorse or recommend any particular breed as being hypoallergenic, they have published a list of dog breeds that are commonly known for not shedding a lot.

If you are allergic to dogs and you'd like to give adoption a go, please peruse the AKC list and the 23 other hypoallergenic breeds listed separately below.
