There is considerable debate whether touching your own private parts breaks wudu, the ruling heavily depends on madhhab.

There's a hadith about this:
It was narrated from 'Aishah that: Asma asked the Messenger of Allah about bathing after ones's period.

I don't think so, as El BOKAHRY commented in the book of ghosl (one of biggest textbooks on this topic) chapter 24 (وقال عطاء يحتجم الجنب ويقلم أظفاره ويحلق رأسه وإن لم يتوضأ). Which means that you are permitted to cut your hair or nails even if you didn't do ablution
The process of taking a bath after sex, or any janabah, includes washing of the head, but it's not necessary to wash all of the hair as this doesn't come in any teachings of the Prophet.
There are several hadiths on this issue. One from Umm Salma saying:
"O Allah's Messenger! I am a woman with braids on my head. Should I untie them for bath of janabah?"
Hadhrat Aa'ishah (Radhiyallaahu Anhaa) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had a cloth which he used after Wudhu (Tirmidhi V1 P89).

There's nothing wrong with touching and playing with a dog. They are pure animals and no need for purifying yourself afterward.
It's a cultural stigma that has made dogs into filthy animals and it's not related to Islam.
So it's not haraam and it's not even disliked. Dogs use to wonder around and urinate in the masjid (mosque) during the time of ...

It won’t be counted as a haram (forbidden) act. In truth, it is not haram to touch dogs, but Islam emphasizes in order to preventing form being Najis (impure). Since as you possibly are aware, you should wash (by its conditions) your hand if you touch a dog(s) if:

In The Name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful.
Wet dreams during the day in Ramadan does not invalidate the fast because it is not intentional. The Qur'an says (interpretation of the meaning):
