I hear grey hounds another breed on the larger side are good for people with dog allergies- if some people are looking for less fluff or curls.

An allergist (MD) told me that it is the skin particles that cause allergies and NOT the hair. So he called 'anti allergenic breeds' a fabrication.

A fool and their money is soon parted. I just wonder how the fools get their money in the first place. Methinks too many folks have too much money to spend and then there's me. I suppose I am a fool for dogs, and that's where all the money goes, before I ever get it.

But yeah, I think folks get enamored by the cutsie little doodle word.

Lol Iíll admit I like to say the word poodle. It used to be Scarletís nickname.

Way back in the day, we saw lots of cockapoos and peekapoos, and then the schnoodles came along. Youíd think that mixing poodle with another breed would smarten it up, but that was never my experience. More often than not, it seemed that the worst of both breeds would come out. I hated grooming cockapoos. They were so stupid. (My apologies to those that loved their cockapoos. They were terrible to groom).

I groomed one Portuguese Water Dog for years, and I really liked her. Sturdy, fun dog.

There are different factors for different people. In cats for example people are generally allergic to a component in the saliva. Less allergenic breeds produce less of that component in their saliva. Which is how the mainecoon for all its long fur is less allergenic.

In dogs it varies but people are often allergic to the dander. So dogs that shed less and their fur traps the dander(hence the huge grooming requirements) people are usually less allergic to them. Doodles and other normally less allergenic breeds have very little consistency when mixed so it's often more of a coin toss unless it's from a reputable breeder who is several generations away from F1 and even then it isn't guaranteed. In the very first labradoodle F1 litter I think only one didn't trigger allergies in the lady. So technically an F1 cross could produce all allergic or all lower allergenic puppies. And somebody with a strong allergy might still be allergic to the hypoallergenic puppies. They may also not have issues with other breeds or sometimes specific dogs.

It's also why if somebody has allergies they want to meet both parents if they're purebred to see if they react to them because people often don't react to puppies. So there is some truth in people suddenly struggling with older puppies and allergies.

I think I would have gotten my mouth washed out with soap if I said "cockapoo" when I was growing up. I think if one of my nieces were to say that, I might still wash their mouth out with soap. Only for a different reason. Cockapoo rhymes with Peekachu and I do have a niece that might put a purple collar on one of those and... Yes, want to make a real aversion to the term cockapoo, soap might do it.

Very true some breeds are better for people that have allergies to dogs. Different proteins in the dander. My cats I was allergic according to my allergy test to cats. My two cats I was not allergic to one cat I had severe allergic reaction my eyes would swell up every time I pet her if I did not wash my hands after.
