Top 10 best hypoallergenic dog breeds

The perfect dogs for people with allergies

With allergies on the rise, especially among children, there are more allergy-conscious pet owners than ever before. Before you pick up a new pup that could trigger sneezing and watery eyes, check out some of the best nonallergic breeds out there — that also happen to be some of the cutest too.

These shed-less pups are great for the owner who loves to be the center of attention — or the kid who loves playing follow-the-leader. The schnauzer loves his owners so much that he won't let them out of his sight, so expect to have a buddy by your side at all times. He does need a firm hand, though, to balance his stubborn, energetic and protective temper. Schnauzers come in three sizes: standard, giant and miniature.

While you can pick your size, do know that the giant model, as a larger dog, may not live quite as long as smaller ones (though not by much).
