What dogs have low dander or no dander at all?
no dogs are dander free. Some have less dander but none are 100% free of dander. small dogs with hair instead of fur that don't shed tend to produce less dander. Yorkies and Maltese are nice dogs to have if you are allergic to dander but you can still be allergic to them. Poodles are supposed to be hypoallergenic but my dad is allergic to dander and poodles bother his allergies the most. be sure to spend a little time with an adult Maltese or Yorkie if you want to buy them first. be sure it is an adult because puppies have less dander.

What is the best dog to buy for people allergic to dog saliva and dander?
I have been looking into dogs with little dander because my dad is like extremely allergic to dander. two that i was interested in were a Yorkshire terrier or a Maltese. These dogs both have hair not fur and don't shed. I was in love when i saw the picture of a Yorkie! Maltese are also adorable, both small dogs. because they are small they don't have as much dander as big dogs. Just make sure you bathe your dog regularly so that they don't have as much dander. Hairless dogs would work too but they aren't as cute. Poodles are good hypoallergenic too. Here is a link to more info- dogbreedinfo.com/allergy.htm
Are westies all right for people with serious allergies to dogs?
People who are allergic to dogs are allergic to two aspects of the dog: their dander, and their saliva. Though Westies shed very minimally, especially if they are brushed and groomed regularly, if you are seriously allergic to dogs, you might not be able to live with the little bit of dander, and the saliva.

What does the phrase dander up mean?
When someone gets their dander up they are angry or excited. Saying 'Don't get your dander up' means relax or calm yourself down. I suspect it comes from dogs. Dark haired dogs will show their dander when upset (it can happen during a thunderstorm, or when upset at a strange dog, etc.). The appearance of white dander flakes on black fur is quite noticeable and led to the saying.

What are the dogs that a child with allergies can have?
Asked in Allergies, Chihuahuas
Are chihuahuas good for people with allergies?
Dogs transmit allergens through their own dander and by tracking external allergens into your house. Humans are allergic to dander, not fur. Dander can be found in dog saliva, fur, hair, etc. Dogs that shed fur less, have hair or are hairless may be less likely to cause allergies because they leave less material with dander in your home. Chihuahua's do have fur and they do shed, so they are not the most hypoallergenic dog. However, smaller dogs are better for allergy sufferers in general because they produce a smaller amount of dander and material that carries dander. Washing a dog twice per week can help a great deal.

Does hypoallergenic dogs work?
There is no such thing as a completely "hypoallergenic dog" because all dogs have dander, and that's what causes an allergic reactions in affected humans. However, low shedding dogs typically produce less dander and since they don't shed much, they also expose the owner to less dander, which decreases the risk of an allergic reaction in humans.

Asked in Domestic Dogs
What are hypoallergenic dogs?
"Hypoallergenic dogs" are those that hardly shed and produce less dander, as this is what causes allergies in humans. And since they don't shed much, the dander on the hair isn't as exposed, which decreases the risk of an allergic reaction.

Asked in Domestic Dogs, Dog Breeds, Yorkshire Terriers
Do Yorkshire Terrier's have pet dander?
All dogs and cats have pet dander. Some people think if certain breeds of dogs or cats don't shed then allergies aren't a problem, but just like humans whose dead cells come off their skin this is what dogs and cats do as well. This is what causes the allergies in some people. But it really depends on if your yorkie is being washed enough, when they get washed, they dander goes away.

If a 10-year old's skin test ranked as a class 3 for dog is it possible to ever get a dog if you follow proper precautions?
There are various hypo-allergenic dogs on the market right now. A Bischon Frise, I think that is the spelling. That is an example of one. It is a small dog that resembles a poodle. That wouldn't have an adverse reaction with an allergy. Don't despair, kids often grow out of allergies. When I was little I was deemed "allergic" to every kind of hair; dog, cat, horse, sheep, you name it, plus about 200 different kinds of plants. By the time I was an adolescent I was showing no symptoms and we had cats, dogs and wool blankets in our house. There is no such thing as a hypo-allergenic dog. It is the dander that causes the allergy and all dogs are going to have dander. The breeds that don't shed may be a better alternative then a shedding dog as they are said to produce less dander. Yes, all dogs have dander, but there is such a thing as a hypoallergenic dog. It's when dogs do not have as much dander, therefore the effects are severely lessened. You can most certainly get a dog if it is a breed that sheds less dander, like the one above. Just Google "hypoallergenic dogs" and you'll get some lists. :)
