Watery eyes, itchy skin, and constant sneezing, let’s face it being a dog lover with allergies can be difficult. Fortunately, specific lines of dogs, including Miniature Schnauzers, can be a great fit for allergy sensitive individuals. Miniature Schnauzers do not shed, and are considered to be hypoallergenic, making them a good choice for people with COPD, allergies or asthma. Every person will have his or her own degree of reactivity to certain dogs; their saliva and the proteins in their bodies. Those dogs that are universally less allergenic come from specific breeds such as Poodles, Kerry Blue Terriers, Schnauzers, Bichons and Lhasa Apsos. These dog breeds, like the Mini Schnauzer, shed minimally due to the length and texture of their coat. Through a combination of coat type and grooming frequency, allergen levels are greatly reduced.
Mini Schnauzers are less likely to cause an allergy sufferer to have a reaction. Some refer to Schnauzers as allergy free dogs or non-shedding dogs or even as people dogs. But whatever you call them, the good news is there’s no reason why those suffering with allergies, must also suffer a life without the loving companionship of man’s best friend.
As allergy sufferers ourselves, we can attest to the low allergen levels of the Mini Schnauzer breed. For those with allergies, the Miniature Schnauzer allows you the companionship of a canine friend without the allergies that so often follow.
