If you're like me, you love your pets more than just about anything. You also probably think to yourself – Why does my dog lick so much? It can be aggravating at times when all your pet seems to do is wash his tongue over anything and everything. Dog slobber all over your face, your feet and your furniture can get tiresome after a while. Forget about it if your guests aren't exactly dog lovers.
So Why Exactly Does My Dog Lick So Much?
For the most part it's pretty straightforward – dogs will lick their owners as a sign of affection. Dogs always have and always will lick – it's in their nature. We've all seen mother dogs lick their pups while grooming them and as a part of other social interactions. It is a learned behavior.
- Licking is one of your dog's primary sensory inputs. Licking (and consequently tasting) is one way they learn about their environment.
- It is an attention seeking behavior and a learned behavior at that. Dogs know they can get your attention when they lick you for a playful rub, a treat, etc.
There are cases where licking can become extreme or obsessive. In these cases it is advisable that you seek the help of a qualified veterinarian or animal behaviorist. In most cases however, it is simply an annoyance at least on the human side of the equation. Since it is a learned behavior, it can also be unlearned with the proper instruction.
