For someone with allergies, pet ownership is commonly considered out of reach; after all, every breeder knows that no purebred pet is truly hypoallergenic. Cross-breeds like the Labradoodle (Labrador Retriever and Standard Poodle) are frequently recommended for prospective pet owners with allergies. But no plebeian breeder or pet shop can compare to the full line of dogs and cats billed as hypoallergenic that Lifestyle Pets offers--both in price as well as range.

Lifestyle Pets has three hypoallergenic cats. The Allerca GD is founded on the Shorthair breed and comes in all coat colors and patterns. Its coat is medium-long, but the cat sheds only minimally. The Chakan is a mix of an Allerca GD and a Siamese cat. They have blue eyes and a cream-colored coat with colored points on their snouts, ears, paws, lower legs and tails. The Ashera GD looks just like a miniature leopard and can grow up to a hefty 30 pounds.

Lifestyle Pets also offers two hypoallergenic dogs. The Jabari GD is a medium-sized dog that weighs about 10 pounds. Its short coat is low-maintenance and sheds minimally. There is also the non-hypoallergenic Titan Family Protector, a highly trained German Shepherd Dog that is is bred, trained and certified as a Schutzhund protection dog in Germany.

Owning one of Lifestyle Pets’ hypoallergenic pets will set you back significantly. The Allerca GD costs $5,950, the Chakan GD costs $10,900 and the Ashera GD costs $31,000. For dogs, the Jabari GD costs $15,000 and the Titan Family Protector costs $85,000-$120,000. The pets are delivered at 12 weeks of age with all shots, spay/neuter complete, microchip identifiers implanted, a veterinary health certificate, two at-home allergy tests, a 30-day in home trial and a one year guarantee.
