Salmonella is not a reason not to have a pet, it is just a reason to wash your hands. I would prefer your Leonberger, but lots of people are happy with different pets!
Salmonella is the reason why some suggest it is safer to buy from a breeder than a pet store. I had iguanas for a while, so I do know the dangers.
I would worry about the salmonella with kids because they spend so much time with their hands in their mouths. I had Red-Eared sliders as a kid and never had problem so I guess you are right Dr. Mark.
