American Hairless Terrier Association

American Hairless Terrier (AHT)
 Allergy Testing Locations

Individuals and families frequently contact us wondering if the American Hairless Terrier (AHT) is the "right dog" for them. Oftentimes, known allergies of one or more family members to dogs is an issue to be considered. Although the AHT has been "the answer" for many allergy sufferers, there is no guarantee that a lack of hair will equate to a complete lack of allergies. It is important to note that allergies to dogs (and other animals) are primarily due to proteins present in the animal's saliva, dander and urine. These known allergens may be minimized in a hairless breed, but they are still present. PLEASE keep in mind that there are, without a doubt, people who are allergic to AHT's. 

Given that the health and well-being of all (the individual/family and the dog) should be of primary importance, it is recommended that an allergy-test (exposure of the normally affected individual to an AHT) is conducted before making any decision with regards to obtaining an AHT. The results of bringing a puppy/dog home and finding out after the fact that allergies are too much to live with can be heartbreaking (for both the individuals and the dog). Please do the legwork first in an attempt to avoid such situations.

We have asked for volunteers (from amongst present AHT owners) to assist others in this testing. These volunteers are located throughout the United States, Canada and Scandinavia (Northern Europe) with their general locations shown on the maps and text below.

Note: The volunteers are in no way compensated by the AHTA for their time and effort and are doing so of their own free will and out of the goodness of their hearts. Please keep this in mind when setting up and completing your allergy tests.

It should also be understood that, although the AHTA is providing a means for individuals to contact AHT owners to schedule "allergy trials" and meet the dogs, the AHTA is in NO way responsible for any interactions resulting from providing a point of contact.

The maps below are linked to general locations of AHT owners willing to assist you. If you are interested in contacting (or being contacted by) an individual in one of the locations listed, please send us an email at allergies@AHTA.info and include your name, location, contact info (preferred phone and/or email address) and the location that you think will work best for you to meet. We will then attempt to put you in contact with the individual closest to the location you chose.

Are you an AHT owner willing to volunteer to help others?  If you are and you haven't already contacted us with your information (or you don't see your city listed below), please send as an email at volunteer@AHTA.info - include your name, location, preferred contact info (email and/or phone), number of dogs (hairless vs coated) and anything else you feel relevant. We will get back to you and explain the general procedure that has been found to work best with allergy trials.
