Our support line receives many calls from very upset parents following a growl or dog bite. As I listen through each voice message I am tuning into patterns throughout the calls. One pattern I noticed is how often parents would mention that the dog would lick the baby/toddler often. They felt confused and betrayed as they were looking at the lick as affection/love. Similar to a human kiss. Recently I wrote a blog for the website Aggressivedog.com about this and shared some examples. I hope you find this blog interesting and helpful! Read here.
I am always looking for examples of this interesting behavior and welcome images or videos that you may have already taken that might be helpful for educational purposes. Please feel free to share them to email@example.com subject Kiss to dismiss if you have any videos you would like to share or ask questions about.
