In brief: Avoidance, meds,

And allergy shots, usually in that order. Wash the dog regularly, keep it out of your bedroom, consider getting a hepa filter for the bedroom. If you have eye or nasal symptoms, try an otc antihistamine like cetirizine.
If these steps don't work or if you have breathing difficulties, you need to see an allergist.
