Why do Pugs lick themselves so often?
It’s true that some of them like being greeted with a licking, but it’s not always good news. Why did this dog stretch out its tongue to start playing around in the first place—and then get stuck! A lot can be determined from how much time your pup spends lapping at himself or you could just ask him “why?”
Licking is one way that pugs communicate affectionate feelings. They also lick themselves and other dogs to clean or taste something they’ve just eaten, which could be a medical condition for them in some cases too!
The way your pug licks you might seem like a simple act at first, but there is more to it than meets the eye. Understanding what these behaviours mean can help prevent them from becoming excessive and deserve some attention!
