They have an alert, playful, and affectionate personality and are especially good with small children. With the hairless variant it’s important that you apply sunscreen and moisturizer to its skin to prevent sun damage and skin dehydration. This dog is extremely loyal to its owner and can even sometimes experience separation anxiety. They need to be taken for a daily walk and even though they are extremely small (12 inches adult) they should not be carried around habitually. In the winter moths the hairless Chinese crested dog should be given a sweater to wear as they are quite prone to the cold. In summary this hypoallergenic dog would be ideal for apartment dwellers, people with small children and anyone who wants a unique but loyal dog.

Poodles can come in three different sizes, toy, miniature and standard, and in a range of colours which include white, black and apricot. This dog breed holds a wide range of personality traits and skills, from the standard being an amazing hunter and retriever and the small/toy being a loving and affectionate family dog. All three sizes of the poodle are highly intelligent and will learn new tricks with ease. Like the Maltese the poodle does not shed fur, thus it’s ideal for dog allergy sufferers. Because of its unique fur the poodle will require grooming every 6-8 weeks to ensure that it is at a maintainable length.
This variant of terrier has been coined as the king of terriers due to it being the second largest in the terrier family. Its temperament is one of extreme intelligence, protectiveness, loyal and rowdy but it’s important to note that this dog can be quite stubborn which makes it difficult to train. Its wiry coat does not shed frequently making it a good pick for a dog allergy sufferer and its coat needs to be stripped every so often. Stripping is where a groomer removes loose hair from its undercoat with a special grooming tool. This dog needs to be entertained and challenged with creative and fun tasks on a daily basis as they are prone to becoming bored.
Tips and comments

- A dog allergy can be treated with prescription medication, so be sure to discuss it with your doctor.
