Yep! Moose knows "Leave It" (for anything) and the wife doesn't like him licking and as soon as he starts she says it and he stops. He doesn't really try anymore either.Yeah, when dogs lick me I get hives and they itch. I could deal with that though. I suppose I could train the dog from the beggining to not lick. Do you think thats possible?
It really depends on what part of the dog you are allergic to, if its the hair its self then yes Poodles and other non shedding/single coated dogs work well. But if its the dander then you may have issues as all animals have dander. I've never heard of anyone being allergic to dog slobber, thats kind of funny to think about. Anyway I would see if you can spend time with a few different Poodles and see what your reactions are to them. More so at pet homes as show dogs tend to be much cleaner and therefore less dander/shedding equals less to have a reaction too.I am allergic to dogs and have been told that poodles are "hypoallergenic." Can anyone give me any advise or stories of experiences with this. I am wanting to purchase a standard poodle if it would work with my allergies. Thanks in advance. John Beiser
