Can't comment on the coat length issue, Linda, but have you considered allergy shots for him? It wouldn't help for this year, but he'd be set for next year. My horse had bad allergies when he was younger, and we did allergy shots for him for several years. (they start out more frequently, but eventually you get down to once a month) They completely solved the problem. He hasn't had the shots for about 10 years now, and remains mostly allergy free.
I was told by the vet that allergy shots are not very effective for food allergies, but seem to work well for environmental allergies. If that's the same for dogs, Finn would be a prime candidate.
