Handle it at school? My ds and i are always covered in dig hair at my home, dog sleeps with ds and on the couch so the dog hair is inevitable.
Just wondering.

 You need to clean more, we have two long haired cats and a German Shepherd and no one has hair all over them when they leave the house.

No idea, but my daughter always has at least some dog hair on her from the dogs (she feels. Hey need hugs at least every 10 minutes lol). I hope no one goes after her with a lint roller in kindergarten!

If he's symptomatic, we give him Zyrtec or Allegra. We have dogs too. :-)

Our dogs shed a ridiculous amount, no one ever leaves the house full of hair. Lint rollers, vacuums, etc.

we have a kitten, and im the allergic one, but its a mild allergy and he doesn't shed alot. I also keep my hands away from my face and eyes otherwise I'm itching and have red eyes.

DH is highly allergic to cats, it never bothers him unless he's in someones house.

Occasionally in a closed space with a particuliarly unclean person.

I sleep with my dogs too, but i don't walk around with hair all over me in public, and neither did my son.

And we aren't neat freaks.

So far it hasn't been a problem. He seems to be mostly allergic to the saliva. We found out he was allergic when a dog licked his face.

Well I am allergic to dogs and cats. I never had any issues at school.

I think my friend has a lot of dogs and cats and I just sneezed a bit while she was near me. My ex bf did as well. Its not life threatening or anything.

If there was claritin when i was a kid, that would have probably fixed the issue.

Buahaha, my mom is a clean freak and she has two labs, short haired dogs, and we leave covered with their hair.

Your definition of clean freak and mine are very different.
