WHY DO DOG's LICK Us?


LICKING is another huge part of DOG communication and they learn as puppies when they get licked by their mother as they’re born. 




DOG's LICK is not GOOD not even BAD as they have good bacteria which help's to keep themself CLEAN, these BACTERIA don't affect on HUMAN SKIN or near our MOUTH.


Dogs lick people to say ‘HI’, to say ‘I’M HUNGRY’, or just ‘HEY, I’M HERE!’.



Your DOG sniff’s you before licking you, because it’s all a part of their sensory experience.






Your FACE might well be your least favourite spot that your dog licks, but consider it a sign of AFFECTION!



Either that your DOG’s trying to tell you that it’s dinner time…… when puppies are young and dependent on their mother to feed them, they’ll often lick her mouth to tell her they’re hungry and she starts to feed them.



Either that, or your dog’s trying to tell you it’s dinner time – when puppies are young and reliant on their mother to feed them, they’ll often lick her mouth to tell her they’re hungry and she needs to regurgitate some food to feed them.




1. WE TASTE GOOD

  • If your dog lick’s their bowl or the floor after a spill, you might easily come to a conclusion that they simply like the taste. But did you know that the same thing can be true if they’re licking to us?


  • Sometimes we have tiny food particles that they can taste, and beyond that, dogs enjoy the salt on our skin. DOG’s like to GRAB the salty sweat which is present on our FACE. As probably our FACE is not covered with any CLOTHE’s. Keep HYGINE as PRIORITY. 







  • When our dog is to lick our sweaty hands or feet and probably trying to understand our mood through pheromones that we emit through our sweat.




2. GROMMING

  • You might not think of your pup as particularly concerned with hygiene, but dogs often lick to clean themselves, just like cats. Pay close attention, though, because excessive anal cleaning can indicate that the glands need to be expressed. DOG’s will even CLEAN your FACE and will groom your BEARD if you allowed to as PEOPLE(MALE’s) have BACTERIA in the BEARD.



3. HEALING

  • Dog saliva consists enzymes that kill off bacteria but when a dog licks itself, it helps to get rid of dead tissue and cleans the dirt from wounds. Some dogs, however, just can’t stop themselves and may actually reopen the wounds or cause other kinds of harm/damage through excessive licking.



4. COMPLULSION BEHAVIOUR

  • If you notice that your dog is excessive licking the same object or area over and over or that they seem to be doing so whenever they are scared or nervous, it might be time to seek medical help. While licking can be a healthy stress reliever but obsessive licking merely reinforces anxiety and makes the problem worse. 



5. OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE-BEHAVIOUR

  • It's a rare condition, dogs can actually suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder, because of prolonged stress and anxiety. Licking that occurs constantly (and usually involves the licking of objects, surfaces, and self in addition to humans) may be a real problem.
  • This problem need's seek of VET.



6. COMMUNICATION

  • Dogs lick other DOG’s/human’s to tell them all sorts of things like “I’m hungry” to “Let’s be friends” to “Let’s Play”. They do this with people as well, but we’re typically not as good at decoding the message. 
  • If your dog is licking you with intensity, take a look around and see if something is wrong like maybe the water bowl is empty or the doggie door is closed or did, he CHEWED your SHOE or Tore the COUCH etc. Chances are that your dog needs something.



7. INSTINCT

  • When wolves (and sometimes dogs in the wild) return to their pups after a meal, they regurgitate (bring to mouth back from stomach) meat from the hunt.








  • The pups which are too young to hunt on their own, will lick the meat from the mother's mouth and it is believed by some that this licking behaviour has been passed down in the DNA, causing dogs to instinctively do it sometimes even.



8. AFFECTION

  • This is the most common reason that domestic dogs lick and tends to be the kind of licking. Licking for affection cause’s your DOG to release pleasurable endorphins that calm and comfort them, but sometimes it can just get to be too much for owner’s. 





SOLUTION: -

  • Stop Promoting the Behaviour.

  • Don’t punish your dog for licking just ignore.

  • Change Your Body Language.

  • Put something in their mouth or Food rewards.

  • Demonstrate affection by touch.





  • Get some exercise to your DOG.

  • Keep them busy and redirect their behaviour.

  • Most importantly, don’t give up!

If the above remedies don’t work then consult to your VET. 


<--CAUTION-->

KEEP YOUR BABIES AWAY FROM THIS BEHAVIOUR.


IF POSSIBLE AVOID LICKING ON YOUR FACE be ALERT rather to being SORRY later.
Never let your DOG to lick your WOUND.
