ALLERGY T-SHIRT TEST
Allergies are what come between many families and their lifelong desire of dog ownership. At Beautiful Doodles 4 U we feel it is our responsibility to assist our allergy sensitive families in their choice of puppy, ensuring he/she will have a furever home and will not have to be rehomed due to an allergy reaction that could have been prevented.
While our breeds are considered allergy-friendly and hypo-allergenic, this only means the breed is less reactive than other breeds. Allergies are subjective to many factors and are different for each person. Not every person is allergic to dander, some are allergic to saliva, while others are allergic to both. In order to decide if our puppies are a good choice for you, we are now offering a special service that is performed before choosing day, using a simple T-Shirt Test. The cost of our T-Shirt Test is $20 ( +3% Square Fee), this is the total cost whether it is for one test or twelve.
If you are considering a puppy and suffer from allergies, please let us know so we can arrange to have a T-Shirt Test BEFORE choosing day.
You will send us one clean T-Shirt per puppy you are considering, laundered in your detergent. (If you like 2, you will send two separate shirts. If you like three, send three). We will expose one shirt to each individual puppy, seal it, and send back either Priority Mail, or for local clients we can arrange a pick-up/drop-off location convenient for both parties. The shirt is then worn for at least 30 minutes-to an hour and up to all day, to see if you have a reaction. If you are testing more than one puppy, allow time in-between each T-Shirt test. Most people that react will start to do so within a half hour, however some people have slept in a shirt to see if they react.
