Licking as a sign of trust

Licking can be an important part of a puppy’s development. It demonstrates trust and submission to its owner, and it is especially common among litter mates and mothers. A mother dog licking her newborn puppy will let it know that she is there to provide comfort and security.

Licking as a sign of affection

Dogs love to lick each other, and they use licking as a means of communication. While this behavior can be adorable, it can also be an annoyance. Many owners complain about their dogs’ uncontrolled licking, and are unsure of what to do. Dogs start licking themselves when they are puppies, and they do this for many reasons, including to comfort themselves and groom themselves. As puppies grow older, they also learn to lick themselves as a way to get the attention of their parents.

Tail wagging as a sign of excitement

A happy puppy is likely to wag its tail when it’s excited about something. But you should also watch closely for other signs of a happy puppy’s excitement, including a relaxed posture, soft ears, and a gentle gaze. A dog who is excited may also bark, spin in circles, or paw the air.
