Doodles and Allergies
Let's begin by discussing the allergy issues, as we see it, with regards to all doodles, but more importantly with our Goldendoodles and Aussiedoodles!
Many people who suffer from dog-related allergies assume that they are allergic to dog dander, only to find out that it is dog saliva that they are allergic to. If you are allergic to saliva, you could be hard-pressed to find a breed you were able to live with, but I would recommend a female because their PH levels are lower.
We want all of our pups to go to lifetime homes, so if you (or a family member) has any allergy concerns it is important that you (or they) are tested before you adopt a puppy.
It is impossible to test your allergic response with puppies or breeding dogs, because dander is present any place you go here-especially at Doodlesville where our dogs live in the house with us! Therefore it is important that all of our puppies are placed in homes where allergy and asthma is controlled by medicine or other successful treatments.
Each and every doodle is different. It all depends on where the genes fall in each puppy in every litter. And even if a breeder were to send you a sample of hair or saliva from a puppy, it would be impossible to accurately test what your allergic reaction would be until a puppy gets its adult coat in between 8-12 months old. The simple fact is that the puppy coat is very different from what the adult coat will be.
