Does touching a dog break one’s wudhu?

Salamu Alaikum Shaikh , if a person does Whudhu and a dog/cat/ touches him ,does this nullify the Whudhu according to the Hanafi madhhab or other madhhabs ,
وعليكم السلام
باسمه تعالى
The Wudhoo of a person whom a dog or cat touches will not be nullified. Since this is not amongst the factors that nullifies one’s Wudhoo. But if a dog licks any part of the body then that part must be cleansed. This is because, the Lu’aab-saliva of dog is Najis and poison as well but dog itself is not Najis. As regard to the parts of the body licked by a cat, it is better to wash it.
والله اعلم
