No bedbugs aren’t from dogs. Fleas are from dogs and cats tho.

No they can’t carry them,or support them so if you have them or are worried about bedbugs dogs DO NOT past them to you. The things they can bring in to house are,fleas(they can’t live on us but can give you a few itchy bites!) Mange mites(these can give you a temporary rash,but nothing more) Lice(unless they are human lice,they can’t live on us,im not even sure if dogs can carry human lice)ringworm(dogs can get this and it CAN past to humans and it will stay unless treated by a doctor) So these are the most common parisites (though ringworm is actually a fungi). Hope this helps.

No…I don’t think so. But if you are still worried ask your vet.
