from what you've described about yourself, I could gather that you're suffering from allergic rhinitis.
This is actually a hyper responsive state of the immune system. Trigger could be anything varying from person to person.
It's great that you've identified the allergens for yourself.
The best treatment is to avoid exposure to factors, to which you're allergic. Difficult for temperature and weather changes, but dogs ,dust exposure can be avoided and certainly should be done.
Besides that there are few blood tests, which can tell you about your allergies.
If longstanding ,then few radiological tests also to be done to rule out sinusitis and polyps in nose.
Better consult with the Ent doctor nearby and get the complete diagnosis.
Depending on it ,you might be given oral anti allergic tablets or intra nasal sprays.
One thing you must remember, that allergy is decided by your genetic composition, so it can only be controlled, not cured.

Household dust is a mixture of many materials.
Dust may contain tiny fibers shed from different fabrics as well as tiny particles of food,
plant and insect parts, mold and fungus spores, dander from pet dogs or cats,
or feathers from birds. Dust also contains many microscopic mites and their waste products.
The waste products of dust mites â not the mites themselves â are what cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.
Throughout its short life span, a single dust mite may produce as much as 200 times its body weight in waste products. Dust mite waste contains a protein that is an allergen.
An allergen is a substance that provokes an allergic reaction.
Homoeopathy can cure such allergy.
