why does my dog lick my feet? For some owners, this behavior may seem odd.

And for those with ticklish feet, it can be downright unpleasant, especially if your pup’s licking becomes a regular occurrence.

 But licking is a perfectly normal behavior for dogs. They lick to communicate and to take in their surroundings.

Your dog has an additional sensory organ, called the Jacobson’s organ, which connects his nasal cavity to the roof of his mouth

This organ allows him to taste and smell at the same time, so he’s able to take in even more information.

Bitches lick their pups to communicate affection and to provide necessary care. 

Licking can also be used to express a wider range of emotions in dogs, including submission and anxiety.

For some dogs, licking even takes on a compulsive nature. Excessive licking is a bit like biting your nails and can be very irritating for owners.
