    It would help to know where in the world this happened. Clean the wound with something antiseptic and if it's deep enough, go to A & E where they will advise you. They may give you a course of antibiotics and ask whether your tetanus shot is up to date.

    Re rabies, see below.

    You might have your dog's stools checked for worms, especially tapeworm.

    Then you need to train your dog or face being bitten

    If he snipped at you and didn't break the skin you have nothing to worry about.

    I'm sorry, you have contracted rabies.

    Unlikely, just wash and disinfect it
