I recently had the opportunity to speak at a blogging conference and met a few people who love dogs, but either they’re allergic or someone in their family is allergic.  That has got to be the biggest bummer in the world.   We fall in love with dogs in seconds, sometimes before we even meet the dog, and to give up that dog because we can’t stop sneezing or itching is heartbreaking.

So I thought I’d put together a list of 33 hypoallergenic dog breeds for dog lovers who are allergic to dogs.  This list isn’t exhaustive; if you just Google “hypoallergenic dogs” you’ll come up with many more.  I narrowed this list down to the dog breeds that I’ve heard of; I found that many of them are either Terrier breed or a Poodle mix.

  1. American Hairless Terrier
  2. Airedale Terrier
  3. Basenji
  4. Bedlington Terrier
  5. Bichon Frise
  6. Bichon Yorkie
  7. Bolognese
  8. Border Terrier
  9. Cairn Terrier
  10. Chinese Creste
  11. Cockapoo
  12. Giant Schnauzer
  13. Havanese
  14. Irish Water Spaniel
  15. Kerry Blue Terrier
  16. Labradoodle
  17. Maltese
  18. Malti-Poo
  19. Miniature Poodle
  20. Miniature Schnauzer
  21. Portuguese Water Dog
  22. Schnoodle
  23. Shepadoodle
  24. Shih-Tzu
  25. Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier
  26. Spanish Water Dog
  27. Standard Poodle
  28. Standard Schnauzer
  29. Tibetan Terrier
  30. Toy Poodle
  31. West Highland White Terrier
  32. Wirehaired Fox Terrier
  33. Yorkshire Terrier


This list isn’t exhaustive; I just included the hypoallergenic dog breeds that I’ve heard of in the past.  All is not lost if you’re allergic to dogs.  With this list, you can definitely find your new best friend and fur kid who will throw a parade for you at the end of a long day.  It’s heaven.

Here is a video by Heart My Dog that sheds some light on the top 10 hypoallergenic dog breeds.


Now it’s YOUR turn?  If you have the pleasure of living with one of these breeds, please share your experience!

    Thank you so much for publishing this. We had been looking to do something similar but kept getting sidetracked on other tasks.

    Our pup is a very allergy unfriendly terrier mix, in case anyone was wondering
