Many people who love to own a dog are hypersensitive to allergens that can easily trigger allergy reactions. Common allergens that trigger flare-ups include a dog’s saliva, urine, and pet dander.

Luckily, there are dog breeds which are non-shedders and are less likely to trigger an allergic reaction. Dogs that don’t shed or shed less are also known as hypo-allergenic dogs. With less hair around the house, there will also be less potential allergens that can trigger allergy flare-ups. If you are an allergy sufferer, you can still enjoy the love and friendship of man’s best friend. The best hypo-allergenic dogs are those which have the least amount of dander (skin flakes) and those that don’t drool a lot.

If you are looking for non-shedding dog breeds, a bit of research will show you that there are certain dog breeds which you can choose from. Most of these dog breeds possess a single coat layer. Aside from lesser risks of triggering hypersensitivity reactions, you will be glad to note that there will be less mess brought about by shedding hairs.

Here are the top 10 non-shedding dogs and their unique features to help you decide what breed you can live with harmoniously.
