To give you some perspective, my dog and I go for a walk, every morning (~ 45 min) and evening (~ 30 min).
We don't have any grounds nearby (only fields (1)) which means I have to walk him on streets with shrubs and small plans along the sides. There are a number of stray dogs and many people walk their dogs along the same route too. What this means is that there's fresh urine on almost every other plant (2) and mine inevitably ends up with urine all over his body (3).
As you may know many dangerous diseases, e.g. Ebola, are introduced into the human population through close contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected animals. This means that not only my dog, but also my entire family, especially me (4), could be in danger.
I have no idea how to clean him up after everyday walks without damaging/harming his coat and skin. Shampooing is not an option as it results in dry skin. (Bathing him with just water doesn't disinfect him. Will a towel bath with Dettol be good enough? Will it introduce any side effects? I don't know.)
So, what should I do? How do you do it?
And I don't walk him in fields due to fear of snakes.
Intact males and females which means they spray urine everywhere.
My dog wants to pee on the same spot, and doesn't get it over with by simply raising his leg. He first puts his head into the plant for inspection, and them moves around, inside and out, before he finishes the job he so diligently performs every single time.
It's his only play time and he loves it the most. So I simply cannot be too restrictive, and even though I watch out for pee on plans, I inevitably miss one or he's too quick.
I kiss him, pet him and play with him; and I want to be able to without fear of contracting a disease.
