Airedales And Allergy Sufferers

The Airedale Terrier is the ideal dog breed for allergy sufferers. Because they shed very little, Airedales are considered amoungst the list of hypoallergenic dogs.

Despite the fact that some dogs are considered ‘non-shedders’, this is in fact a misnomer. All dogs shed – it is simply that some dogs shed less than others. One of those that sheds less than most others is the Airedale Terrier.

When a dog sheds, it releases dander into the air. Dander is similar to dandruff, and contains hair and dried, flaky skin. This dander contains allergens, and that is what triggers allergies in allergy sufferers.

Hypoallergenic dogs, because they shed less than other dogs, therefore have a tendency to provoke less reaction in allergy sufferers. So if you suffer from allergies but still want a dog, maybe the Airedale Terrier is the dog for you!
