Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa waheguru Ji ke fateh

Hi I've been a germphobe for quite some time, and recently my family got a dog know I'm confused a bit.

I wash my hands quite a lot now, And I don't want them to get bad like they did before.

Like the dog eats meat and stuff and I do want to play with it but is just washing my hands enough if I want to do path, if the dog touches my clothes and I want to go gurdwara shall I change my clothes ?

Also am I allowed to touch meat, to feed it?

I too have three dogs. We feed them meat as well, because that is their natural diet. We have all special dishes and containers for their food and I lay newspapers out on the counter when preparing the food so no meat touches the surface. Also, I prefer to wear rubber gloves when preparing their food because I do not wish to touch the meat.

As for the dogs themselves, yes, just wash your hands before doing paath. You do not need to change your clothes unless you wish to do that.

Our dogs are blessed souls. They have earned rebirth to come into the home of a Gursikh such as yourself and to hear the divine Gurbani.
