Allergist and Immunologist (Pediatric) Questions Allergies

My daughter has hives whenever she's exposed to certain dogs. Does this means she's allergic?

My father has a german shepherd and whenever the dog licks her, she has hives only in that area. There are a few other dogs that this happens with. Does this mean she's allergic to them? She also doesn't have any other reactions, mainly hives.

Yes. It means she is allergic to dogs. It would be worthwhile to confirm this with a blood or skin test.
