    Why does my dog lick my bare feet?

    Every chance she gets. It isn't a greeting lick like on my face. Is it like a salt deficiency or just the dog's fascination with organic smells like rotten things? Now my feet don't reek but i don't have her sense of smell Do dogs taste one another like that?

    It's probably a combination of those things. But, if it's something you don't want her to do, correct her for it and redirect her to something acceptable.

    Heh, Sadie used to do this too. Every time she licked I said UHUH and brought her to one of her toys. She still tries to lick other people sometimes and I have to correct her. I don't like licking.

    Eevee loves to lick my feet, but I don't mind it. It's kinda like a doggy foot massage and puts me to sleep lol. She only does it with me though. I think she has figured out that most other people don't like it.
