Why Do Dogs Lick Us?

Dogs are instinctually drawn to licking right from birth when a mummy dog is licking the babies to feed and care for them. This habit translates into a submissive gesture of affection when dogs are older. 

Dogs also do like the salty taste of our skin, which is why some dogs love giving kisses after a workout. 

But mostly, if your dog is licking your face, they are just trying to say, “I love you.” 

How sweet is that!
