Why do dogs love facelicking? | Dogalize
When you come home after a long day of work or for no apparent reason other than pure love, your dog will show you affection by licking your face. But what if we told you that there are a number of reasons why canines behave like this?
In fact, affection is not the only reason why your dog wants to give you a facial treatment. In some cases, our dogs simply like how we taste. This especially applies to the period right after you’ve cooked food, as the pores in our skin tend to pick up a lot of smells and flavors from the cooked meals.
There are also times where your dog might be grooming you. Believe it or not, even pups tend to get concerned with hygiene, and you – as the pack leader – have the priority here.
Sometimes dogs can lick your face out of compulsion. If you notice your pooch is licking the same object over and over again, be that your face or a table leg, it might be doing it as a response to being scared or nervous. In this case, seek medical help for your pet.
