Thanks for the questionCustomer

Short answer here but it does cover things : You have nothing to worry about here as human scabies will not affect dogs or indeed dog scabies affect people. You get the odd person who has a mild transient skin reaction to the dog mites but the full blown disease will never develop.

If I have not covered your question fully enough or you would like to ask more I will be online for the next hour or so and I will be at your disposal.
