I was raised around dobermans my whole life and parents still have them so wife and I bought one few years ago which is our baby. My parents have raised 7 kids and have 18 grandkids and even though Some people have negative opinions of dobies they have raised all of us. So back to where I started, my daughter has been around my dog and parents dogs and never had an issue. I have always hunted and have brothers who have labs for hunting nd I talked my wife into letting me get one but wanted to also get involved in Field Trials and or hunt test and so I have spent last several weekends going to watch some event to get some knowledge of the sport. My neighbor who has a lab had a family emergency and asked if we could please watch his girl overnight which was no problem since our dogs play together. My daughter hasn't really been around the lab very long and she has been sneezing and itching and has a rash. Can people be allergic to specific breeds of dogs and not others? I sure hope not because this may end us adding a lab to our family.
