Dogs are friends and partners in our lives, and at the same time, they bring us a lot of happiness in life. We are also happy to play with dogs and will be moved by their friendliness and loyalty. But why do they like to lick their master's feet? In fact, each dog does this for different reasons, so let's see which ones.
Maybe licking the salt on the feet
Some people think that the dog is licking the owner's feet because the feet sweat more, the smell is obvious, and there is a salty taste. This smell will stimulate the dog's nerves and make them feel very flavorful. In fact, some people have done research in this area, showing that dogs can indeed taste salty taste from human skin. This may be the reason why some dogs lick their master's feet. However, don't always let the dog lick your feet, not only because too much salt intake is harmful, but also because there are many bacteria on the feet, the dog is prone to diarrhea.
Feel comfortable and relaxed
Dogs like to lick things when they are stressed, and licking the owner may make them feel relaxed. If the dog does not have enough trust in the owner and does not feel that the owner will make it relaxed and safe, it will not be exposed to you in this more fragile way. In the world of dogs, licking each other is a sign of emotional communication and can strengthen the relationship between family members.
Just like children, dogs are curious about everything around them, especially things that smell and move. Dogs don't have hands, so the way they explore things is to lick and smell to distinguish. When people shake their legs or feet, the dogs will be attracted by the feet that are moving all the time, and they want to know what this fun thing is. So, many times, dogs lick your feet just curious.
In order to attract the attention of the owner
People always have all kinds of things, busy and busy. But dogs are different. There is only one important thing in a dog’s life, which is to be with the owner. So a dog's daily life is relatively boring. And once the dog owner does not care and accompany them, it will also cause them to have depression. They will find ways to attract the attention of the owner. When it licks your feet, it will attract your attention and want you to accompany and play. At this time, the pet owner should respond to the dog and can touch his head or hug the dog. Have time to do interactive training games to improve feelings.
