Why does my dog want to lick my mouth?
Posted by: AAA
Date: October 26, 2009 09:20AM
I don't mind 'hugs', but my dog constantly wants to lick my mouth.
Is there a consensus as to why? (from professionals...not YOU guys!)
What's the worst that could happen from dog spittle?

That's another thought, of course, I had. Is it just the dog is trying to lick a taste off my mouth? Or is it affection? Or what? Why the mouth?

You have bad breath.

Dogs have enzymes and bacterial colonies in their mouths that kill bad germs. He's trying to disinfect you.

Before or after he disinfects his butt ?


Worst that could happen is maybe kennel cough or a parasite transfer.


Probably would lick your toes, too.


Affectionate pooch or likes @#$%&hole$. Pick one. :-)

Puppies lick their mother's mouths to get mom to regurgitate food for them to eat. I am sure after thousands of years living with people that it has morphed into affection as well, but that is the origin of the behavior.

another vote for salt.

my dogs have always done the same, but that seemed to drop off over the years of contact; they became more interested in licking the mouths of others through the years.

this thread explains a lot.

The dog just loves ya.

Maybe he just smells something you ate. Who knows.

We have a small poodle that likes to come up and smell our breath. I guess I prefer that to having him nose my crotch.

You guys are funny.
I know the dog does not want to drink/taste the apple cider vinegar I drink. I put some in a bowl. No go. So why lick my mouth after I drink it?

(rhetorical)

little moomie dogs lick little babie doggies, too.
To clean them, maybe the little poochie is treating you like a little wittle mommie doggie.

Dogs lick.
They use thier tongues.
They lick other animals' crap lying on the ground, too.
It doesn't mean anything beyond that's how they taste things.


I doubt it's anything more nor less than communication as with wagging of the tail.

You can smother yourself with doggie psychobabble or just accept the dog's way of saying hi.

I let my dog lick my hands, arms and he loves to lick my ears but I draw
the line at licking me in the mouth.

problem is from ear to mouth is but a sly, .1 second transition for my dog on my face. I need ninja reactions to assuage the action.

Agree with $tevie.
Our older dog doesn't care to lick to anyone but himself. Our young pup (pictured) likes to chew, sniff, and lick anything and everything except most vegetables.

Because it reminds him of his {whatever}???

It's a sign of submission in the dog pack structure. The dogs lick the alpha male's mouth. So he's giving you "props", think of it as a doggie salute....

Sometimes these topics are dull.
Sometimes informitive.
Sometimes funny.
And sometimes they get f'n weird!
But that's not all bad.
If god gave dogs opposible thumbs like humans they might scratch their @#$%&hole instead of licking it like we do. They have to do everything with their mouths, from communicate, clean, show affection and submission. Give them 4 fingers and a thumb and things might be different.
How many of you dog owners know what your dog is thinking and how many of those dogs know what their owners are thinking? On what level do you communicate with your animals? just sayin. there is a lot not understood and a lot to understand!

Who out there has heard Ron Whites routine about taking his bulldog sluggo to the vet for artificial incemination and the Doc tells him that Ron could do this for himself and he did not have to bring the dog it to have him do this. Ron's reply; ya, he follows me around enough now with those sad eyes beggin me now, he'd never leave me alone!

Animals understand us; we don't understand them. Therefore, we believe they don't understand us.
