My county is a chessboard grid of buildings and streets. By going east, I mean away from the everglades forward the beach. Less than 20 miles. But normally a trip to Walgreen's doesn't happen, so it's rare I go that far. She has one door to her kitchen and said there would be fine. Ed wouldn't say no. There's another door to the apartment. But since it's a locked, indoor condo building with a.c. and heat, on the 3rd for, everyone knows everyone there, and there are 3 appt on the floor that's why I thought a crate near their door might work with a toy or bone.

I'd look at the possibility of crate in kitchen (because tile floors are easy to clean) assuming that there's a door into the kitchen. Something of that sort. The details depend on the layout of the home, but crated, in a place that is easy to clean, and doesn't involve walking through a large amount of the home to get to.

Is there someone who can watch the dog for you while you are away? In the case there isn't, I'd look into boarding the dog a short while at a nearby vet clinic if you are planning to stay the day or meeting them outdoors in the parking lot (or whatever) for something quick like picking up your son. That way it doesn't impact them in a negative way. If it really is a difficult dilemma you could ask them and say you are concerned about his allergies, but I personally would never push it in someones home. Allergies can be aggravated long after you are gone. It just depends on what they want to do.

When i was younger I remember having some family that never had dogs in the house and really didn't want any to start coming in the house. I just left the dog at home. I had people that could watch the dog though.

I'm trying to be as respectful as possible. I'm kind of in what might be a suburb, but it's still city... I don't go east that often but if I do I pack as much as possible into the day. If I leave the house I need to know I'm not going to have to for a while, so if I do go to visit leaving the dog home wouldn't be possible. That's why I'm planning ahead.

Personally, I would leave the dog at home and try and get as much dog hair off me as possible so as not to bring it in their apartment. Sort of a respect thing as you are entering someone's house. I wouldn't even ask, I'd just leave the dog and if they ask where the dog was I'd say I didn't want to aggravate his allergies. They may offer an alternative to you at that point, or just thank you for thinking of them ahead of time.  :smile:

The work place is different, but someone's house is their personal domain. So I'd go out of my way to accommodate them.

If it is an illness that is running higher than normal in your area, if it were me, I would get the vaccine, just to be on the safe side. Prevention is the one area where you can have the biggest effect on keeping an animal healthy.  Yes, vaccines have a downside, but I feel that the benefit outweighs the negatives.

I do not want someone to bring a dog into my house that I am allergic to even if it is wearing a body suit. 75 - 80% is not enough for me.   Certainly an improvement though for a work place or something.

It's all that is needed for flying as well.

Our articles on ESAs start here:  http://www.servicedogcentral.org/content/esa

Articles include a step-by-step instruction on getting a reasonable accommodation in housing (if landlord is subject to FHAA, but not all are) or on commercial flights. Please note the doctors letters you need must include some specific information/statements (especially for flying) or they can be rejected. We include sample letters to guide you in your letter to a landlord and to guide your doctor in writing a letter for housing and/or flying. If you word carefully, one doctors letter can work for both housing and flying and is good for one year.

I am surprised no one has mentioned it yet, but K9 Topcoat offers Lycra "body suits" for dogs. This would hold in most of the hair and dander that are responsible for allergy reactions. Ity covers about 75 to 80% of the dog, so it might be worth looking into if you go to the house a lot.
