Are Cobberdogs the magic panacea to allergic dog lovers? They might be, if the allergy is to dogs. But what about the Dust Mite?
Today I received another inquiry from someone who has a family member who is severely allergic to dust mites. This question is getting more frequent so this was my reply If your daughter’s allergies were to dog dander (skin particles) then a Cobberdog would be a great choice. But seeing as she is allergic to dust mites, then sadly, I don’t think the breed of dog would make much or even any difference.
Healthy dogs will roll in the dust, play in the dust etc., and when they are touched by a human, the dust mites are transferred from the dog to the human. No doubt the inside of your home is kept very clean and free of dust, but it would not be healthy for a dog, to keep him/her always inside.
Perhaps a breed with no hair at all might be the best option for you such as the Chinese Crested? Then you could wipe over the dog’s body several times a day with a cloth to remove any dust picked up outside.
I’m so sorry to disappoint you, but I would not feel comfortable sending you a puppy with a long coat
