Allergies in dogs can be just as stressful as in humans. From seasonal allergens to house dust mites, a variety of triggers can cause discomfort in our beloved four-legged friends. In this blog post, we would like to give you some useful tips and tricks for dealing with dogs with allergies, especially during the allergy season, as well as in everyday life.

Tips for the allergy season

Allergy season can be particularly unpleasant for dogs, but with a few precautions you can help your four-legged friend:

Visit the vet: Have your dog tested for allergies to identify the exact triggers and plan suitable treatment.

Allergen minimization: Try to minimize your dog's exposure to allergens by wiping him down after walks and cleaning his paws.

Everyday tips

In daily life with an allergy-prone dog, there are some best practices that can help control symptoms:

Keeping the living area clean: Keep your home clean by vacuuming regularly, washing your dog's beds and cleaning his favorite spots.

Hypoallergenic materials: Look for hypoallergenic materials when choosing a dog bed. You should also pay attention to this when choosing toys and other accessories.

Food adaptation: It makes sense to adapt the food to your dog's individual needs. We recommend that you consult your vet or an expert here.

Skin care: Only bathe your dog when it is really necessary and only use shampoos developed for dogs. Your dog's skin produces natural oils that are important for maintaining a healthy skin and coat condition. Too frequent bathing can strip away these natural oils and lead to dry skin and a dull coat. Using two-legged shampoo can disrupt the natural pH balance and lead to skin irritation.

Special challenges for house dust and mite allergies

Additional measures may be necessary for dogs with house dust and mite allergies:

Mite-proof dog beds: Choose dog beds that provide a mite-proof barrier to prevent mites from entering and relieve allergy symptoms.These include, for example, the KUDDE dog bed (faux leather or suede look) and our Jokkmokk outdoor mat, which guarantees the best sleeping comfort for your dog even when traveling in the car or motorhome.

Clean regularly: Wash fabric dog beds and blankets regularly to remove mites and ensure a clean environment for your dog.

Health check: Consult your vet regularly to monitor your dog's allergy symptoms and adjust treatment if necessary.


Overall, allergies in dogs can be a challenge, but with the right care and attention you can give your furry friend a comfortable and healthy life, even during allergy season.
