Is it Safer to Kiss Your Dog or Your Significant Other?

Between dog breath and drool, the canine mouth can get a bad rap.

Through a series of tests, a dog fence company has found that the human mouth has 1.4 times more bacteria than a dog’s kisser. That’s a difference of about 2,000,000 germs.

This information shows it is safer to kiss the dog you love over the human you love. Sorry, significant others.

Here are some other surprising dirty numbers:03While dogs may have cleaner mouths, humans have less germy toys. Doggie playthings and bowls have 2x more germs than the everyday objects humans use, like forks and cellphones.

So, what did we learn? Dog smooches are probably safer than you think, and your pet’s bowl could use an extra run through the dishwasher
