Doodle dogs are a popular crossbred between several poodle types and other dog breeds. If you’re the proud owner or soon-to-be parent of an adorable Doodle breed, you’ve likely come across various viewpoints, facts, and even misconceptions about doodles and allergies. But don’t panic; The Doodle Tribe is here to bust myths and clarify the truth concerning doodles and allergies.
Myth #1: All doodles are allergy-friendly.
A widespread myth is that all doodles are equally safe for allergy sufferers. This is only partially accurate because various people react differently to different drawings. Some may have allergies to the dog’s dander or even saliva, in which case, the hypo-allergenic benefits of a doodle’s coat would not be effective in minimizing allergic reactions. Allergies differ considerably from person to person, and although some people may find particular doodles comfortable, others may develop allergic responses despite the breed’s reputation.
Fact #1: F1B and multigenerational doodles may be more allergy-friendly
When choosing a doodle with potential allergy considerations, F1B and multigenerational doodles are often recommended. F1B doodles result from crossing a doodle with a purebred Poodle, creating a higher percentage of Poodle genes, which can contribute to reduced allergenicity. Multigenerational doodles are bred from generations of doodle-to-doodle pairings, increasing the likelihood of allergy-friendly traits.
Myth #2: Doodles don’t require regular grooming for allergy sufferers
While doodles have low-shedding coats, this doesn’t mean they don’t need regular grooming, especially for allergy sufferers. Regular grooming, including brushing, bathing, and coat maintenance, can help minimize the allergens in a doodle’s coat. It’s essential to establish a grooming routine and consider professional grooming to keep your doodle’s coat and living environment as allergen-free as possible.
Fact #2: Individual allergy testing is necessary
If you or a family member has allergies and are considering getting a doodle, you should contact a medical expert or an allergist beforehand. Individual allergy testing can give useful information about individual triggers and aid in determining the best course of action. Testing can assist in determining whether a doodle breed is a good fit or if other possibilities should be considered.
By staying informed, maintaining regular grooming routines, and seeking professional guidance from the Doodle Tribe, you can create a safe and comfortable environment for your new doodle and yourself.
