Can dogs get nasal bots

My two pooches are snuggling and sneezing away.  We have sheep as well so can they get nasal bots?

Looks like they can - Mr Google says this "Nasal bots are the maggots or larvae of the sheep nasal bot fly, Oestrus ovis. Nasal bots are often found in sheep and goats but do not cause significant problems and owners are usually unaware of their presence. However bot flies occasionally target humans, dogs and cats."

I wonder how you'd know if you have nasal bots "
... bot flies occasionally target humans..."
