If you are talking about desensitization shots, having been through this with my child, these are things that worked:
-explain that the shots will help her/him not to have so many Asthma attacks.
-the needle used for these is so small that many children never even feel it if they are distracted. you can even get the doctor to show it to the child if you think it will help.
-the shots don't go on indefinitely, they stop after an immunity has been built up. The immunity can last for years.
-making allergy shot day a special treat day for some favorite activity helps a lot, if it is dependent on their behaving well for the shot first.
-get the child to talk out their specific worries about the shots, and be honest in your response.
-some kids like a colorful bandaid with their favorite characters on them for their "owie".
-if your child will respond well, set her/him on your lap for the shot, but be firm while soothing her/him that this is necessary because you care about her/his health and well-being.
No. I got mine 1 year after I was diagnosed with pollen allergies and then I learned that 80% of everybody who gets pollen allergy develops asthma. My sister have always had that allergy but developed serious asthma after her second child.
are often allergic to something like mold that sets off the asthma attack. A good first approach is to take the child to an allergy doctor to see what allergies if any exist and avoid them or get allergy treatments.
Yes, that is how most people get it. Just 80% of people who have pollen allergy develops allergic asthma. It's not as bad as the one you are born with but it can develop into it. I got my asthma after I had my second child. But I also have a severe allergy against pollen and fur.

Theodore Roosevelt suffered from severe asthma as a child.
He developed asthma as a child.
Well that should be an easy answer the answer is I don't know?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!
Because asthma is constriction and inflammation in the airways, a short haired dachshund should be fine because dogs cannot trigger an asthma attack.
Unless the child has the same allergy, No. Allergic reactions are not "contagious"
There are many ages when a child can develop asthma. The age that a child is most likely to develop the disease called asthma is the very young age of five.
Asthma doesn't spread. It's not a contagious disease. It's an allergy. You're born with a tendence to hipersensitivity, and can develop it through your life. If you're exposed to allergens at a very young age, you develop asthma as a child.

Animals have nothing to do with asthma. Allergies do.
...you mean Theodore Roosevelt? He only had asthma as a child.
I believe so.
Yes, especially if they have asthma when they were children. My husband had asthma as a child (very badly) but by the time he reached 15 it disappeared.
maybe or not
Inhalers are a must, especially if the child experiences asthma attacks. Inhalers usually contain a steroid medication that will cut an attack short. There are other medications that can be used to treat asthma -- there is no cure, just treatment.
Nothing unless the child has an allergy
Yes it is
