I can never understand why people let dogs lick their faces.
Dog saliva is cleaner than a human's. Fact.

Joking aside, I read it somewhere (I can't remember for the life of me where) that you have much less chance of infection from a dog bite than a human bite. Speaking only for myself, I can't lick my plums or my bum, but I do struggle to work out how dog saliva is less likely to cause infection than a human's. I read it in a respectable publication, too, not The Sun or anything.

Leaving any infection issues aside, it stinks.

When I was a kid my grandad used to say that if you had a cut or a graze and a dog licked it then it helped to heal it.
Turns out he was right as it's been proved that dog saliva has antibacterial properties.
