Dog breeds that produce less oil?

So, I love dogs, but I'm fairly allergic to them. It isn't so bad that it would make me get rid of a dog or never own one, but it's a minor annoyance. Specifically, I have skin reactions to the oil in their coats. So here's my question: are there any breeds that produce less oil? Or are there any that produce a LOT and I should avoid? Thanks in advance!

Poodles are good for people allergic to dogs, and I believe if you feed you dog a higher quality kibble it will produce less oils.
