May 30, 2014

Story at-a-glance

  • According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, an estimated 10 percent of Americans deal with allergies to animals. What triggers the allergic response is skin dander that collects on the animal’s coat.
  • The fact is no dog is “allergy-free,” but there are several breeds considered hypoallergenic, meaning they have less chance of triggering an allergic response in sensitive individuals. The American Kennel Club (AKC) suggests these 9 breeds, which have consistent and predictable coats that don’t shed, and therefore produce less dander.
