We know you love your dog, we are animals lovers all around. In fact, the RAACINE team has 6 dogs combined, plus cats, birds, horses, the list goes on! 😃
But here are our thoughts on letting your dog lick your face ...
Put simply: Don’t do it! Without getting too technical, here are our top 3 reasons why you shouldn’t:
1. Have you seen where your dog puts his muzzle? Hmmm … probably not where you would put your own mouth.
2. Dog’s carry a certain amount of bacteria on their tongues, and this is different bacteria than we as humans carry.
3. Everyone’s skin reacts differently, and while it's not a given, your skin could have a reaction from a dog’s saliva, why chance it.
So in a nutshell – we love our pets - but let’s save their kisses for our hands and body and not our faces!
