Are dogs really as dirty as a lot of people tend to think?

I’ve always found it very surprising when someone says: “Don’t let that dog lick you, his tongue is full of germs, you’ll get sick.” For me, it was everyday life, living with 10-25 dogs for over a decade. Yes, our house was probably much messier than a normal house. Sometimes I had to dress up twice before school because dogs really like to jump when they are happy seeing you. And the fur, oh the fur was everywhere. But the good news is that our family were rarely sick, usually a typical cold.

But seriously are dogs really as dirty as a lot of people tend to think?

Studies say living with dogs can actually make us healthier

I’ve come across several studies that say the complete opposite, meaning that living with dogs can actually make us healthier, especially kids. Research shows that children who grow up in homes with pets during the first year of life are likely to have a stronger immune system and less likely to develop childhood allergies and asthma.

Dogs Are Cleaner Than Men’s Beards petworldglobal.com

Mens beards are much dirtier than we think

If we think that kissing a dog is dirty then what about kissing a man with a beard? Beards can increase a man’s attractiveness but what about cleanliness?

A new study by researchers at the Hirslanden Clinic in Switzerland says that beards are much dirtier than we think.

According to BBC News, the researchers took swabs from the facial hair of 18 men and the necks of 30 dogs of varying breeds. The results were very surprising even to the researchers who were essentially trying to see if humans could pick up dog diseases through their facial hair and instead picked up this unexpected info.

Dogs can be considered clean compared with bearded men

Turns out, every one of the men, aged somewhere between 18 and 76, had high counts of bacteria in their beards. Meanwhile, only 23 of the 30 dogs had the same result. The other dogs showed a range of medium to low levels.

Even worse, seven of the men had so much bacteria in their beards that they were at risk of getting sick from it.

Professor Andreas Gutzeit said the following on the subject: “The researchers found a significantly higher bacterial load in specimens taken from the men’s beards compared with the dogs’ fur.” “On the basis of these findings, dogs can be considered as clean, compared with bearded men,” he added.

This is not the first time a study has found similar results. The study by Manchester Metropolitan University and Fragrance Direct found that 47% of beards contained faecal matter. Even the ones that were cleaned regularly! Researchers found the microorganism “Enterococcus spp” in almost half the beards of their subjects. Many of which said they cleaned their beards daily.

Beard hair is coarser and more curly so probably this is why it traps dirt more easily, with hair around the nostrils and mouth the prime hotbed for bacteria. I guess it’s possible to find all sorts of unpleasant things if you took swabs from people’s hair and hands and then tested them.

Your dog loves you most in the world

All in all, germs are everywhere, we’re meant to live with them anyways. It’s important to keep your surroundings and yourself clean but it’s also vital to show affection to your pet whose only meaning of life is you…and food of course.
