@mechi2, I don't think it's dumb, but you may be overreacting. From all I've read and heard, dogs cannot carry the virus on their skin or fur, so it shouldn't be such a concern to let the dog into the house as usual. I walk my dog every day, and never wipe his paws unless they are dirty with mud. I also let people I know at the park pet him with no worries, he has a long retractable leash and I am at least ten feet away from them, that's my only concern.Because of the coronavirus going around I wipe my dog's paws with hand sanitizer after she comes home from a walk. Do any of you do anything like that or am I just overreacting?
