    Yes, a certain kind of mange.

    When mites infect dogs, it is medically referred to as mange. Mange is a skin diseased caused by mites that invade a dog's body. They normally attack in large numbers. The mites will feed on the nutrients of their host's body. Dogs can contract two types of mange, but sarcoptic mange is the only form that can be transmitted to humans. Mites can cause many health concerns for your pet as well as you.

    Physical Contact

    When a human contracts mange, the condition is referred to as scabies. Humans can get mange through prolonged physical contact with an infected dog.
