One of the main symptoms of allergies in dogs is licking the feet. Now this can be deceptive because some Malts do this as a kind of nervous habit and as we all know this breed seems to be genetic lickers..of almost anything. If you can distract the dog from feet licking it is probably not allergy related. The dog is licking because that is the way they "comfort" the itch and they will not be distracted easily. Sometimes allergies manifest as eye symptoms..like the area around the eyes becomes red and swollen. Dogs don't all that often manifest allergies in sneezing and coughing..that is more likely due to an illness.

Another symptom is throwing up bile, usually first thing in the morning. Especially after their first trip outside.

Micah did that a few times and my Vet thought it might be allergies - but turns out she actually has a tummy problem we're dealing with.

dogs allergies are mainly skin problems. chewing, licking, etc. ear infections. they just get real itchy.
