Default Grooming

My dogs will all just sit around and take turns grooming each other. They clean each others' face and do the 'flea biting' to each other and go through their hair. It's quite cute.

But lately they've extended this familial grooming to ME. I sit on the couch and suddenly will feel someone flea biting my hair! If I go to lie down, I get mauled with dogs wanting to clean my face! I know paps are pretty over the top affectionate at least compared to my past dogs, but still this whole grooming thing is a bit much for me, lol!

So do your dogs try to groom you? (As weird as that sounds)

No....but my parrot and one of my ferrets does

That sounds really cute though, but I could really see how after the first times you would like to keep your bugs to yourself and be able to lay down without having a facefull of dogs

Yeah they lick feet too lol. SUmmer's always been an obsessive licker but lately it's just weird... It's exactly what they do to each other. She tries to clean my eyes (ick!) and they take turns doing the flea biting to me. It was cute and still kinda is but it's also kind of strange, lol! Maybe they're just telling me I need to do a better job bathing myself.

On my pap board most of the people said their dogs do this too, but I've never had any that did before these two.

Yes...

Especially after i shower, Izzie will insist on being in the bathroom with me while I'm towelling off and she must help me dry my legs by licking all the water off! Then there's the normal foot cleanings and them insisting they want to clean out my molars if i yawn too close to them!

All my dog does is lick me very gently on occasion. Usually she licks my scars and scratches.

Finn does it to me if I lay between his front paws while he's laying down. It feels neat. :P

He does it ALL the time to June Bug, our cat. She gets so blissful when he does.
