Why does my dog lick me so much?


Recommended Posts

Licking is a natural and instinctive behaviour to dogs. For them it’s a way of grooming, bonding, and expressing themselves. Your dog may lick you to say they love you, to get your attention, to help soothe themselves if they’re stressed, to show empathy or because you taste good to them! Excessive licking can sometimes be a sign that your dog is anxious, uncomfortable or in pain. If you’re concerned about your dog always speak to a vet or behaviourist for advice.

Dogs lick their owners for various reasons, and it's a behavior that can have multiple interpretations:

Affection and Bonding
Taste and Smell
Stress or Anxiety
Grooming Instinct

If your dog's licking behavior is excessive, causing discomfort, or seems to be related to stress or medical issues, it's essential to consult with a veterinarian or a professional dog trainer. They can help determine the underlying cause and provide guidance on how to manage or modify the behavior if needed.
