Are soft-coated Wheatons a good choice for allergy prone people ? I have a grandchild who is "allergic to dogs and cats" hives appear when around them......... would it be safe for her to visit, stay etc., with this breed ?

I have a Wheaten and everything we have looked into says they are hyoallergenic. I have had friends over who are allergic to dogs and none of them have ever had any issues..... I am not sue how severe their allergies are though.

I have severe allergies to cats and most dogs. I owned a Wheaten Terrier for 6 years and had NO allergic reactions. Unfortunately, my wheaten passed from cancer but would get another one in time. Great breed.

Did you continue to have reactions around other dogs? Like at the vets or visiting friends with non-allergenic dogs? Just curious, thanks for your input so far.....
