  1. watch your own video to know what's the reason they lick our faces; exactly the moment in which a dog wags his tail,jumps and licks a man's face.

  2. I'm kind of a dog whisperer kind of guy who loves my dogs. Here is my take on why dogs lick us. First the taste of our skin whether it be cologne or salty sweat but I also believe when they really do love us they can't pet us or hug us so that to get the bonding kind of emotional fix we get from petting them they like us to get that feeling.

  3. I really truly LOVE dogs they're the best lifeform on the planet(yes even better then most of us humans)

  4. Doggies need a modesty flap hung over the back of their tails. Have they no sense of shame and embarassment?

  5. Somebody used to beat our cheweenie rescue pup. The first few weeks whenever I approached her she'd wince, roll over and cover her face with a paw. What maggot would hurt a cheweenie puppy?

  6. This video made me depressed. I thought I was being a good dog owner but I’m glad I watched it, now I know how my dog really feels

  7. Great content!!! I just found your channel and I subscribed!!! Looks like I'm binge watching your videos!!!

  8. My dog Ava has mastered the pitiful sad look. She’s so manipulative in that way, but she does it because it works. I just love her to death.

  9. You're telling me dogs can spin into depression after an existential crisis? This is the worst news I've ever heard.

  10. Why do boxers lay their head on your lap while you eat? …. that way they don't get slobber on their paws

  11. Fun facts:Dog's are Wolves and only a manefestation of humans need to control things, if you really loved animals, you'd leave them be in their natural habitat.

  12. My stella's nickname is heli-butt because she wags her tail so hard it looks like she's about to take flight and fly away like a little gsd helicopter

  13. Because they're short and want to see what's going on? How stupid. I suspected the following before I found it by a search:

    Why Do Dogs Stick Their Heads Out of Car Windows?

    http://mentalfloss.com/article/30456/why-do-dogs-stick-their-heads-out-car-windows

    Dogs seem to stick their heads out of moving cars almost any chance they get. What’s so great about a wind-whipped snout?
    While I wasn’t able to find any scientific research on the phenomenon, a number of dog behaviorists agree that the window’s main draw isn’t the scenery or the breeze. What dogs are after are smells.

    A few months ago, in a post about bloodhounds, I explained that dogs are basically walking noses… As air moves over the olfactory membrane, odor molecules settle on the scent receptors and get recognized. The more air there is flowing over the membrane, the more scents the dogs can detect. So when a dog sticks its head out the window, it’s like pigging out at a hi-definition all-you-can-smell scent buffet.

  14. There may be some validity to what you say. But you'll never convince me licking isnot also a show of affection. I dont agree with with your opinions of dogs

  15. My neighbor's dog has only two thoughts in its head:
    1) See moving object. (animal, blade of grass, rain)
    2) Bark endlessly at moving object.

  16. Good to know thank you! ?❤️?
