List of Hyper Allergenic Dogs

Below is a list of Hyper Allergenic dogs. If you are looking for a Hyper Allergenic dog to bring into a home with family members with allergies any of these dogs may be a match for your home. No dog is 100% Hyper Allergenic, but most people allergic to dogs react different ways to different breeds. Even if your allergic family member has a reaction to a particular breed of dog the breeder claims is hyper allergenic that family member may be fine with other breeds deemed hyper allergenic.

We are so glad you found our page addressing questions about hyperallergenic dogs and hope this article is helpful, but as you continue your research about low allergy dog breeds you should use the search term "hypoallergenic" instead of "hyperallergenic". Hyper- means over, excessive, more than normal and Hypo means under or less than. A hyperallergenic dog would be a dog with extra allergy producing dander, but if you have a dog allergy you'll want to look for information on hypoallergenic dogs. Keep in mind that all dogs may carry small amounts of allergens or will carry allergens from other dogs in their fur.

To keep the allergy risk low even among hyperallergenic breeds, you should bath and groom as frequently as your breeder suggests. (Bathing some dogs too often will remove oils from their coat, causing their skin to flake and potentially cause greater allergic reactions) If your family is super sensitive to pet dander you should be careful about having your pet groomed in a facility where other breeds are groomed.
