Default Licking...

Hello there!

like I said previously I recently started enjoying my first beagle, does everyone else's Beagle lick CONSTANTLY?? When I pet her she's licking me, when you are putting on her leash she's licking me, when she's standing next to me she's licking my leg, when she's on my lap she's licking me...do they all do that? Or is this a nervous thing?

My husband is alittle worried that she's nervous because I know we joke about them being hyper dog but she literally NEVER sits still unless she's in her crate.

I know what you mean!!!! Whenever i sit to pet pepper she turns her head so she can lick my hand, or if im standing next to her she starts licking my legs.... Or if she isnt getting any attention she starts licking the wood floor boards? I'd say they just like to taste everything as much as they like to smell it all

How old is she again?

Keep in mind that dogs will do dog things. Licking is one of those things, and also one of the ways dogs show affection.

Yup, yup. When we first got Sadie and Pooh as babies, the first thing they did was lick and lick us. They still lick us in the face and anywhere we will let them. We call it kissing.

I am at home with Kioko all day, and so is my 4 year-old daughter. Her licking with the two of us is reasonable. By that, I mean that she will lick any part of us that is put directly in front of her at least once or twice. She's very affectionate that way.

My husband, on the other hand, is the only member of our pack that does not stay home. He is gone during work hours, and when he IS home, Kioko will not STOP licking him. She would sit and lick his head or face or hands or whatever...as long as he would let her.

I don't know what any of that means, really; it's just something I've noticed.

The licking is a slightly submissive, very affectionate gesture. Watch a video of a pack of wolves and watch how they greet the leader/show affection to each other. It usually includes lots of licking and tail wagging and body wiggles we'd recognize in our beags! Dogs are very in tune with their pack, so licking to show affection, excitement, submission, curiousity, etc, is normal. If the licking is getting too extreme for you try teaching the pup to give kisses or only lick when you give a cue (rubbing the chest, scratching ears, whatever). My dad has never let dogs lick his face, so Henry usually has to sneak those licks in while his Poppy is busy working on some project (and sweatin' and cussin')!

Lucky has never been big into licking but my brother's dogs are. Lucky will only lick me if he thinks I spilled food on myself!

Duke will lick some, but not constantly. He'd rather play. But my lab, Cassie, is such a licker. We have a friend that has learned not to wear shorts because Cassie will pass him and do what he termed a "drive-by licking". LOL

LOL about the "drive by licking"

Buddy gives "kisses" when you ask, or if we return from work or just being out and he is relieved to see us.
