I've heard poodles are good hypoallergenic dogs because they barely shed and have less dander than other dogs. On the flip-side, I think they require more brushing and grooming than other dogs.
The reason the Poodle is recommended for allergy sufferers is because of the type of coat the dog has. Poodles have hair that continues to grow from the same follicle, very much like human hair. So you have to cut it every now and again. My Labradors on the other hand have fur that grows to a certain length then another hair grows from the same follicle pushing out the more mature hair which results in shedding. And boy do my Labs shed!. There are hybrid dogs being bred specifically for allergy sufferers from the Poodle like the Goldendoodle or the Labradoodle. Both lovely dogs. I think the Portugese Water Dog is good as well.
