Hi Ashton, welcome to Healingwell :) A few tips to help you guys. What sort of mattress do you sleep on? You can put a hypoallergenic liner over your mattress and also get hypoallergenic pillows. If you have carpet in your room, is it possible to remove that only? We spend so much time in our rooms that by eliminating the allergens in there can really help. Do you keep the dog out of the room? If not, then that's a start too. Also, sometime a humidifier in your room at night can help reduce allergies. You can also put cheesecloth over the heating vents to trap any dust plus insert a hypo allergenic filter in your furnace. If your dog is long haired, you can try having him/her shaved and have him/her shampooed frequently at the groomers (or at home) with allergy shampoo. This helps keep the animal dander down. As for the carpets, I forget who makes it, but they have an allergy reducer powder you can sprinkle on your carpet. But one tip about vacuuming, is that you should dust after you vacuum because vacuuming stirs up stuff that is in the carpet. Also, if you have a carpet cleaner, you can clean your carpets once a month or every other month with allergen shampoo.
I hope that some of these tips help you!
