What does Hypoallergenic Mean?
Because hypoallergenic dogs are dogs like poodles that rarely shed their coat, fewer furs mean less disturbed allergic proteins. Ultimately, this means fewer allergies. Not all Border Collies are hypoallergenic. Mixed Border Collies such as a mix of a doddle and a Border Collie known Bordoodle or Borderpool are hypoallergenic. Doodles are known for their less coat shedding activity, and this mix is perfect for those allergic to shedding but still want Border Collies characteristics in their pets.

How to prevent allergies
Groom your Collie
A clean breed with no real body odour, Collies can have either a very rough or a smooth coat. The long, stiff, rough coat sheds easily and needs a weekly brushing. The smooth soft coat should be brushed every one or two weeks. Like most breeds, a regular bath is not a necessity. The rough Collie sheds heavily twice a year whereas the smooth variety is an average shedder. Collies are not hypoallergenic.
If someone owns a collie, they now have a new second job in their life. It is brushing the collie’s fur and maintaining its cleanliness. It may not surprise you when we say the collies go through many brushes and combs. When you brush a collie, you have to pull out all the hair from the brush after each use.
Designate Dog-Free Zones
Once your Collie sheds its coat, the decreased exposed areas imply the allergens have less opportunity to attack. Use toss covers over sofas and seats where the canine likes to set down and wash them regularly in steaming hot water. At whatever point conceivable, pick your Collie beds or container cushions that are easily washable to additional tidy it up.
