Rutland Manor determines the hypoallergenic index of its dogs at the level of 99%.
However, if you are struggling with various types of allergies or asthma, the best thing I can advise you is to spend some time with our Labradoodles. In this way, you will find out for yourself whether they cause allergic reactions in you or not. Our hairy family cordially invites you to visit!
I was also very skeptical about the subject and before I bought one of these dogs, I made sure to spend a few hours with him for a few days.
My Dudles will certainly help convince you, and at the very entrance you can count on a joyful welcome with a wet tongue.
Over the years of selective breeding, Australian Labradoodles have been created precisely to play the role of an excellent working dog, for people who also struggle with allergies or asthma.
Of course, not all Labradoodles are hypoallergenic - but we can be more sure only in the case of Multi-generational Australian Labradoodles, whose conscious selective breeding was focused on this feature.
Your allergies don't necessarily have to be caused by your dog's fur - and by the allergens it may carry on it - dust, grass, pollen allergens. Therefore, if after reaching home you find that it does cause allergies in you, I advise you to bathe your dog first - especially when his journey was long and he himself was focused on many external factors that could cause the appearance of various allergens on his fur. Indeed, some customers pay attention to this, but after the bath they calm their fears.
Hairy Passion's Australian Labradoodles live with allergy sufferers in 90% cases. Often these are very strong, cross allergies, including the weakening of the immune system. So far everything is fine. However, our Labradoodles are 100% verified for "allergy friendly" coat
Let's take a quick look at the different generations of Labradoodles and the question of triggering allergic reactions:
- First generation (F1) - A cross between a Labrador and a Poodle. In such a litter, of course, there may be puppies that are non-shedding and hypoallergenic. However, choosing a puppy that will have these features as an adult dog is like fortune-telling. Research is currently being conducted to determine if a puppy's hair texture can be a determinant of shedding and causing allergic reactions in the future. Studies show that there is no direct relationship to hair texture, length or type for allergies. Therefore, the identification and selection of puppies that will have these features in the future is extremely difficult. I myself strongly advise against the first generation Labradoodle for allergy sufferers. It may turn out that soon they will have to say "goodbye" to their pet, which is always a very unpleasant experience.
- Second generation (F1B) - A cross between a first generation Labradoodle and a Poodle. If you want a non-shedding dog, this is a much better choice, but the results are still uncertain. The probability that Labradoodle of this generation will be non-shedding and allergy-friendly is estimated at approx. 80%. However, it all depends on the coat of the first generation Labradoodle and the Poodle, which were crossed with each other. Note - the second generation is not a cross between a first generation Labradoodle and a first generation Labradoodle and should not be confused.
- Third generation or higher - A cross between a second generation Labradoodle (F1B) and a second generation Labradoodle (F1B). If we want to get a non-shedding and allergy-friendly dog from this combination, we must be sure that both parents also had these features. It takes about three generations of selective breeding to get the desired results, and even then it may turn out that the dog does shed slightly (genetic recessive trait).
- Australian Labradoodle. This is one of the best choices if you want a non-shedding and hypoallergenic dog. If both parents don't shed, neither should your puppy. It takes about three generations of selective breeding to get the desired results, and even then it may turn out that the dog does shed slightly (genetic recessive trait).
In a word, when buying a dog from lower generations, you can never be sure that an allergic reaction will not occur after about a year of owning a dog (just at the time of replacing the coat with proper fur), then there are a lot of unpleasant disappointments and often crying.
