Cheapest Hypoallergenic Dogs. 23 Breeds Ranked by Cost


If you have a pet allergy and love dogs, hypoallergenic breeds can be very tempting. With the help of pet professionals, I have analyzed the cost of over 150 breeds. In this article, I only present the ones that are considered hypoallergenic by the American Kennel Club and mixed breeds bred from these purebred dogs.

Two things are essential to understand. First, there is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic dog. Some breeds may reduce the risk of allergies based on anecdotal evidence, dogs that shed less, but all dogs have proteins in dander and saliva which can create allergic reactions. Secondly, even though some designer breeds were created to be hypoallergenic, results in coat or temperament are not achieved consistently.

This article will detail the cost for 23 of the most popular hypoallergenic breeds. Like any other dog, there are many expenses to consider, like the cost of the dog itself, supplies, food and treats, training, grooming, vet, license, and microchip.

When getting a hypoallergenic dog, an owner can expect to spend $1,700 on average for the puppy. Throughout its lifetime, the dog should cost around $23,000 (usually between $12,000 and $35,000) in essential expenses.

Additionally, expenses like insurance ($565 per year on average), spaying or neutering ($100 to $500), dog walking ($15 to $50 per walk), or boarding services ($25 to $85 per day) would increase the cost of ownership as well. It is also essential to know that cost can vary significantly depending on products and services quality and the area you live in.

Below, we detail each hypoallergenic breed’s cost based on professional recommendations and estimations from a dog trainer, two licensed veterinarians, a certified groomer, and a dog walker from the US. If you are interested in a specific breed, check the related cost article to learn everything there is to know and find professional tips. You will also find a cost calculator that will enable you to establish a budget based on your needs and preferences.

Essential costs to consider for a hypoallergenic dog

Before going into details about the cost for 23 hypoallergenic dog breeds, here is a quick explanation of the expenses considered essentials in this article.

Puppy or dog

We have accounted for the cost of acquiring a dog. In the US, a puppy will cost $1,300 on average ($1,700 for the hypoallergenic dog breeds below), and most will fall in the $500 to $2,500 range. It could be much more for quality show purebred dogs with a prestigious bloodline. On the other hand, adoption is much cheaper and generally costs $50 to $500.

If you want to know more about the price of puppies in the US or compare this breed with 150 others, check our puppy prices article based on the analysis of close to 50,000 ads (for 151 different breeds).

Supplies

Any owner will need to purchase dog supplies for their dog. The bigger the dog, the more expensive it gets. We have considered prices for the following items in this research: bowls, leash, collar with ID tag, bed and crate, poop bags and scooper, training pads, odor removal spray, toys, first-aid kit, brush, shampoo, tooth-brushing kit, and toenail clippers. Some owners could need more supplies. Although the initial investment is higher, some items will need to be replenished or replaced, and an owner will have to buy dog supplies every year.

Check our Dog Supplies Guide and get tips to choose the right items for you and your dog (bowls, collar, leash, bed and crate size, etc.). Learn everything about costs, and find the best products available.

Basic training

Every dog would benefit from training. Although some breeds tend to be more docile, each dog is very different, and training needs must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Whether the owner trains the dog himself or hires a professional for group or private lessons, a dog should always be properly socialized, know basic training commands, be potty and crate trained. Positive reinforcement training methods will give the best results.

Medical costs

It is recommended that a puppy goes to the vet at least three times during the first year and an adult dog at least once every year. These appointments are for a physical checkup, necessary vaccines, and any recommended examination or test. Veterinarians like Dr. Brooks, DVM, also recommend using heartworm, flea, and tick prevention medication to reduce the risks for the dog to develop a dangerous illness. The bigger the dog, the more expensive it gets.

Read our article titled a veterinarian explains medical costs for a dog to learn more and get tips to save on vet expenses.

Food and treats

There are so many types of food, diets, and brands that it can be overwhelming. To establish the costs in this article, we have considered some of the most popular dry food brands as it remains the most common dog food type. In general, bigger dogs will need to eat more, but other factors such as age and activity level will also have an impact.

Treats can easily be more expensive than food if given daily. There are many reasons to give a dog treat: to supplement his diet, stimulate him, help with training, etc.

When it comes to food and treats, prices are all over the place. Some brands are very accessible, while some premium quality products can be considerably more expensive. For example, some more expensive products pretend to prevent shedding, which could be worth trying to reduce your allergy symptoms.

Grooming

Short-haired dogs or the ones with a low-maintenance coat could be groomed at home with basic supplies. Visiting a grooming salon could be avoided if the owner is willing to do the essential grooming himself. Brush the dog regularly (ideally daily), cut his nails once every 2 to 6 weeks, brush his teeth at least once a week (ideally more), and bathe him once every one to three months. Clean the eyes with cotton and water and the ears with an ear cleaning solution when necessary. And if needed, remove any extra hair under the paws, around the eyes, and in the ears.

Wire-haired, long-coated, or curly-coated breeds will most likely need to be professionally groomed multiple times every year on top of that, as it would be too challenging for most owners to care for their coats.

Whether you take your dog to the groomer or do everything yourself, regular grooming and coat maintenance will be primordial to reduce the risk of allergy reactions. A dog with a well-maintained and healthy coat should lose less hair and dander in the house.

License and microchip

Licenses are mandatory almost everywhere and usually are between $10 and $20 yearly in the USA, depending on your location. A microchip is also required in most states and usually costs from $25 to $50. Both are useful to identify the dog if he gets lost and make locating you much easier.

Additional costs to consider for a hypoallergenic dog

Reduce allergens and allergy symptoms

As mentioned earlier, there is no such thing as a 100% hypoallergenic dog. The breeds in this list may help by shedding less and potentially could cause fewer allergies, but all dogs have proteins in dander and saliva (even hairless and non-shedding breeds) which can create allergic reactions.

So even with a hypoallergenic dog, you might need to consider additional expenses. For example, you might need to clean your house more often, use HEPA air cleaners, get extra grooming sessions, buy special dog food, or get allergy treatments which would add to your costs.

Pet insurance

According to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association, the average premium for accident and illness insurance is close to $49 monthly. This will vary a lot depending on your location, the dog’s breed, and age.

Some medical conditions can be expensive to treat (hundreds or even thousands of dollars). Although purebred dogs may have a higher incidence of some inherited disorders, mixed breed dogs are also likely to develop health conditions, such as cancer and heart disorders. No dog owner should have to make critical decisions about their pets based on their ability to afford care. That’s why pet insurance is more popular every year in the US.

If you wonder whether or not you should get pet insurance, we have a simple step-by-step guide to help you make the decision. This could save you thousands of dollars. Also, be aware that there is an alternative to traditional pet insurance available on the market.

Community coverage VS Insurance

Eusoh: Better than Pet Insurance for Complete Health Coverage
Eusoh is a community-based pet insurance alternative in which members share the cost of their veterinary expenses. You get reimbursed for your pet’s medical, wellness, illness, routine care expenses but never pay more than $65/month ($40 on average).

For complete health coverage at a low cost, Eusoh is the best option. On average, members save around 50% when compared to traditional pet insurance. I love the idea of not having to worry about being able to afford medical care for my furry companion. Dogs are family, after all!

– There is no premium, so you don’t overpay for care in your monthly contributions. Any unused contributions are rolled over entirely as a credit.
– You can easily know in advance what will be reimbursed and by how much (usually 80%), and you can submit expenses easily from your smartphone.
– You can choose the veterinarian or healthcare provider you want and are covered for a broader range of services.
– You can get advice from other Eusoh members.

Spaying or neutering

Most specialists recommend that every dog should be spayed or neutered. It remains the owner’s decision in most cases, but know that the procedure could cost $100 to $500 depending on the clinic and the dog’s size.

Dr. Brooks, DVM, would recommend a gastropexy procedure for large, deep-chested dogs such as the Afghan Hound, Standard Poodle, Labradoodle, Giant Schnauzer, and Goldendoodle. It usually costs $200 to $400 when performed at the time of sterilization. It is an efficient way to help prevent the stomach from twisting on itself (Gastric Dilatation and Volvulus or GDV) which is life-threatening and would require expensive surgery to be corrected.

Dog walking

If you cannot take your dog outside during the day, a dog walker is essential to prevent the dog from getting bored and potentially develop behavioral or health issues. Dog walking usually costs $15 to $25 for a 30-minute walk and $20 to $50 for a one-hour walk. You must be aware that those costs add up very quickly if you need a dog walker five days a week all year long.

Dog boarding

If you are traveling and cannot leave your dog in the care of a family member or friend, dog boarding will usually cost between $25 and $85 per day. It could be more expensive depending on the time of the year.
