I say with all my heart that unless the owner of such a dog particularly requires it for show purposes, it should be neutered to make its life happy and that of its owners equally trouble free.
I've caught more ills from people sneezing over me and giving me virus infections than from kissing dogs.

The phobias I meet are very often connected with the show ring.
