Are AussieDoodles, SheepaDoodles and BerneDoodles Hypoallergenic?
While no dogs are 100% Hypoallergenic, poodles are known to be one of the most tolerable dogs for people with allergies.
We can’t speak for every AussieDoodle, BerneDoodle, or SheepaDoodle out there, but our families who have allergies, tell us their F1 Doodle sheds very little and they have no allergic reactions.
A Doodle is a poodle mix (or cross breed) typically where a poodle is mixed with another breed, in order to produce a more healthy and non shedding version of the pure bred dog.
Short haired dogs are usually the worst with shedding and dander, while long haired dogs are known to be better. To date, no family has ever returned one of our F1 Doodles due to allergies. We have sent dozens of puppies home to families who report they have “mild allergies”, and they report no reaction to our F1 AussieDoodles, SheepaDoodles, or BerneDoodles.
That said, no one could ever guarantee you won’t have an allergic reaction to a Doodle (or even a poodle). If you have severe allergies and really want an Doodle, we would suggest getting an F1B Doodle, or spending some time with a F1 Doodle (if you can find one) and seeing if you have a reaction.
When two humans have a child, sometimes the child looks like mom, and sometimes like dad, and sometimes both. With dogs, it is the same way. In summary, there is no exact answer to this question, because it depends on the severity of the allergies. But again, no family has ever returned or even complained about their AwesomeDoodle and allergies.
If you’re considering an AwesomeDoodle puppy and want to know what the puppy’s coat will look like as an adult, look at past puppies for the DADDY of that litter. Check out this article on coat types, including F1 vs F1b.
