How does the Australian Shepherd do with allergies?
The Goldendoodle is hyper-allergenic but way too expensive! So I am wondering about the Australian Shepherd.
Thanks

The "Goldendoodle" is not hypoallergenic. The dogs are just as likely to inherit the Retriever's dander as the Poodle's.

Aussies have dander, just like the other double coated breeds. If allergies are severe it's probably best to avoid them. I have allergies and I suffer a perpetually runny nose with my dog around, but that's it.
