Q. Why does my dog want to always lick our lips when she gets in our face. More aggressive when we come home the licking is very aggressive. need to stop
DESTINI R. HOLLOWAY, DVM
A. This is an unwanted behavior that you will have to do some training with your pet to get it to stop. Some pets just like to lick to show affection. I would recommend working with an animal behaviorist or animal trainer to help curb the unwanted behavior. You have to work with someone either one or one, or purchase a dog training book that goes through step by step how to stop this. It is more than can be covered in a brief reply box here on the site. If she is jumping up on your before licking, then you have to first address the unwanted jumping behavior.
Another tid bit is to make sure that when your pet does not jump or lick that you provide positive rewards for good behavior as well. And to remain cool and calm because our pets are more receptive when we have a good attitude during their training. Good luck!
