[quoteTo test claims about allergy-free dogs, researchers at Utrecht University in The Netherlands recruited nearly 200 dogs of four hypoallergenic breeds and compared them with a group of 160 standard dogs.

Based on hair and coat samples, the researchers reported that significantly higher concentrations of the Can f 1 allergen, one of the proteins that cause dog allergies, were found in samples from hypoallergenic dogs than in the control group of non-hypoallergenic dogs.

On the other hand, the researchers didn’t measure the level of allergies in the pet owners, so it still could be that these dogs, for some reason, cause fewer allergic reactions than other breeds.][/quote]

[quoteSo how can you cut down on a pet’s allergens?

Good advice includes bathing your dog frequently — one study showed allergen levels were reduced by 85 percent for about three days after a bath — plus keeping your pet out of your bedroom, and dusting and vacuuming often.][/quote]
