What Are Non-Shedding Doodles?

If you have been in the market for a new dog or puppy but are concerned about allergies (and haven’t heard of non-shedding Doodles), then you’ve probably realized by now that your options are limited when it comes to what breed is most appropriate for you. After all, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health just for your new fur friend!

Doodles, a popular crossbreed of the Poodle and other breeds, have gained popularity in recent years due to their playful, affectionate, and intelligent nature. They have become somewhat of social media superstars over the years because they are incredibly adorable, but they also feature a few traits that make them ideal for those with allergies. 

Are Non-Shedding Doodles A Myth?

One of the main reasons people choose a Doodle is because they are often considered to be non-shedding or hypoallergenic. These are two of the traits you need in a dog if you or anyone in your family has allergies. 

A non-shedding doodle dog does not shed its hair or fur (or sheds only a little hair or fur), while a hypoallergenic dog is less likely to cause an allergic reaction in people with pet allergies. Up to 30% of the population of the United States has allergic reactions to dogs, which makes it hard for those who are allergic to find an appropriate pet.

The reason Goldendoodles, Labradoodles, Bernadoodles, and Cockapoos are hypoallergenic is due to the mix of the Poodle, which has hair instead of fur. Poodles don’t shed their hair in the same way that other breeds shed their fur. With careful genetic testing over several generations Pride and Prejudoodles has been able to breed out the fur of the Retrievers while breeding in the hair of the Poodles. This results in a dog with the lovable personalities and traits of Retrievers with the hair benefits of Poodles. This is a specific process that not many breeders have been able to achieve with their dogs. 

A Non-Shedding Doodle Might Be A Fit For You

Doodles are considered to be less shedding and more hypoallergenic than other breeds, which makes them a strong choice for a large number of Americans looking for a breed that doesn’t cause them any unwanted reactions. The shedding and hypoallergenic properties of a non-shedding Doodle will depend on the specific parent breeds, the genetics of the individual dog, and the skill of the breeder. 

At Pride & Prejudoodles, our non-shedding Doodles are coat-tested over several generations to ensure that these hypoallergenic traits are in your puppy! In fact, we guarantee that you are getting a non-shedding coat. With the canine genetic expertise of our staff, we promise your family an extensively health-tested, non-shedding puppy every single time.  

It’s important to spend time with a Doodle before committing to one as a pet, but if you or your family have all but given up on owning a pet due to allergies, look no further than a P&P Goldendoodle, Labradoodle, or even Cockapoo!
