Perhaps the word Hypoallergenic sounds strange, it was to me at first too, but it's easy. Hypoallergenic dogs are dogs that do not shed their coat. Whenever a dog sheds its coat, there are particles of dander (the dead skin cells that are shed by all dogs) that shed along with the coat, and that causes allergic reactions in many humans. The more hair a dog sheds, the more the animal dander that comes with it.

We love helping people with allergies become dog owners. For the purpose of this article, we have made of list of the top-5 hypoallergenic dogs.
