Looking for a canine companion but can't take the allergies that come with it? You might be able to handle a hypoallergenic dog. While experts are split on the veracity of the hypoallergenic label, certain breeds that don't shed much are likely to leave you sneezing far less. Different people and dogs react differently though, so try spending some time with the dog or breed before you buy or adopt one of these loveable hypoallergenic pups.
This small breed is one part human, one part dog, and 100 percent loveable. Yorkies are independent, affectionate and spirited, and love to be in the company of people. You don't need a huge backyard to own a Yorkie, but you should be up for playtime anytime.
Despite this small breed's fluffy hair, it's considered hypoallergenic. Happy, enthusiastic dogs, they are sociable and need lots of attention, so they can't be left alone for long periods of time.
Many people became familiar with this breed when President Obama picked it for his family dog. They are smart and friendly dogs who love being a part of the family. As their names suggest, they love water and need a fair bit of exercise. Porties are loyal and great with kids, and they love to keep busy.
These terriers are friendly, bouncy dogs who love everyone they meet. While they definitely need some training, their spirited personalities make them permanent kids-at-heart and a lovely addition to the family.
Feisty, stubborn and sociable, this is not your typical lapdog. This breed is lively and loves to take part in family activities. They're quite independent, so early training is important, but their personalities make them indispensable members of the family.
Like the Norwich terrier, the Norfolk terrier is bold and affectionate — a big dog in a small dog's body. Though these dogs don't need as much exercise as some breeds, they have hunting instincts and are never boring.
These champion runners love to exercise and can make terrific jogging partners. They see any place as a place to run and jump. But they also love to snuggle and get cozy in warm places. They're sensitive dogs who hate the rain and cold, and respond best to gentle training.
These terriers make boisterous puppies and loving lifelong companions. Airedales are smart and athletic dogs with hunting instincts. Be sure to offer them lots of opportunity for active, thoughtful play. They dig, chase and are full of energy, so they'll keep you on your toes.

The marble trend is still going strong for 2017, but you don’t have to splash out on real stone to get the look. Transform a plain tray into a chic catchall with this easy project.
- A cardboard or wooden tray
- Acrylic paint in three complementary colours, or two colours plus white
- A small paintbrush
1. Lay the tray, right side up, on a hard work surface. Pour two or three large dollops of each paint colour onto the top of the tray.
2. Tilt the tray to one side until vertical, then gently tap the bottom edge onto your work surface, allowing the paint to drip down to the edge of the tray. Rotate the tray 90 degrees and tap the bottom edge again to create a marbled design. Repeat until the surface of the tray is coated, adding more paint, if needed, as you go.
3. Using the paintbrush, paint the rim and the sides of the tray in one of the colours.
4. Let dry overnight.
Tip: Add a metallic hue for a glam accent, or go with grey and white paint for the look of Carrara marble.
