I usually head right to the bathroom shortly after the Rottie has her big welcome, washing my face and hands. When I leave, it's a repeat of when I entered, but I wait until I get home to wash up before cooking or carrying on. My sister's dog has licked my legs, arms, neck and I've slept soundly without showering that night or getting sick the next day(s).
The best part is always hearing my sister yelling at her dog to stay down and not to lick me, because I was so paranoid about it at first.
I'm pretty OCD about handwashing before food prep, though, and suppose you are too.
As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

I also don't let dogs... or animals all over me. I'm a toucher. I touch my hair, my arms, my whatever, and my face. I don't want gluten on me. Anywhere. Period. I don't judge people who are find with it, but I just am not. Because of the fact that I have no interest in getting gluten in my mouth because of habits that I've had my whole life and have no desire to try to break, I just keep pets away.
I still wash my hands when I've been on furniture. I do things like put my feet on the furniture and just ewww, without worrying about other issues like gluten. Also, if pets have been on furniture think about where else they have been before being on the furniture. In litter boxes, or digging in the yard, or licking their um.... yeah. We have lots of reasons to wash our hands when we share furniture with pets besides gluten.

If you're going to be concerned about your friend's couch, then you should be concerned about everything single thing you touch outside your house. Wash your hands often and always before putting them near your mouth. Don't put things in your mouth besides food.
