Sneezing

Now, I am not professing to be an expert in allergies to dogs but I have tried to find out as much info as I can about some of the causes, based on the research of professional allergists.

Contrary to belief, most allergies to dogs are not as a result of the dog hair but to proteins found in the saliva and secretions from skin glands, this is deposited to the hair by licking and being released into the air.

Research seems to allude to the positive affect of the introduction of pets to animals when the children are young,  This could lead to a stimulation in the immune system away from allergies.

I myself have been known to react to very fluffy cats but I have my own short haired cats which do not affect me at all.

Of course, it should always be remembered that different people react differently to dog allergies and the extent of the allergy can vary breed to breed and dog to dog.

For the Schnoodle cross breed they are bred from a Poodle which is classed as a no shedding dog and a Miniature Schnoodle, considered a low shedding dog.  Each pup can vary but they are considered as more likely to suit someone with slight allergies.

Have you ever had to return a pup to a breeder following an allergic reaction?  What tips can you give to people to avoid this situation?
