I adore DDog having a sniff, snuffle and lick but was told I was "gross" for allowing such a thing to happen.

I don't think IABU but do you think IABU?

YABU

I adore my dogs, I really do, they are fluffy balls of perfection (Pekingnese), but they do not lick me, ever, I hate it. Not very nice for the dog to be licking your feet either. I know they eat their own shit given half the chance but still.

Dog licks my feet, especially when he wants something in the kitchen. Dont like it, it tickles, but not gross

Horrid. No.

Meh. Not something that appeals to me but if you like it go right ahead. It's not hurting anyone.

Oh god, it's like my worst nightmare! I love dogs, but hate feet. My dog will lick your hand, if offered, but always gives this look of "wtf am I doing this for, you weirdo".

I wouldn't like my dogs licking my feet, or anyone else licking my feet..
However when I was falling asleep yesterday my dog started licking my arm then looked at me as if to say "did you like that?"
I didn't ...

YABU. I adore my three hellbeasts but I hate them licking my feet. I endure it if they've been particularly outstanding in some respect, my normally I move away and rub their ears instead. They will even go so far as to root their noses up under the bed covers, seek out my feet and covertly slobber me whilst I am sleeping angry. Evil beasts.

I love my dogs dearly but I don't let them lick me.

My SIL likes to stretch out her bare feet and spread out her toes for her labrador to lick them. Which he does, thoroughly. I just think urrrgggh!

CantAffordtoLive Sat 12-Sep-15 22:15:32

Urgh. Well what you do in the privacy of your own home and all that but it's not something I would like to see, or do.

Gross! shock

Yabu. Horrific. I love my dogs, cuddles, snuggles, sniffs great. Licking?! FEET?! I'd rather be shagged with a ragmans trumpet

Salmiak Sat 12-Sep-15 22:18:11

Eeeeewwww, no no no. Yabu

Alchemist Sat 12-Sep-15 22:18:29

What on earth is a ragmans trumpet?!

Drama Your SIL and I would get on.

I don't mind a little bit of foot licking, but my dog will lick you all over for ages if you let her. Why do they like doing it? She does give nice cuddles though.

TheImpracticalCat Sat 12-Sep-15 22:24:29

No! No to dogs licking me at all tbh. My dog loves to lick people's hands and faces (many an unsuspecting victim has had a slobbery tongue shoved in their mouth), and I'm desperately trying to teach him not to. I see him snacking on his own poo! Bleurk.

I used to let my labrador lick my feet, but had to stop because my soles would turn sore and have painful splits in them.

So, it's a no from me, but it is personal choice I guess.

Cherryblossomsinspring Sat 12-Sep-15 22:37:59

Noooooo! So so manky. But can understand when you love 'someone'......but still.

OctoberCupcake Sat 12-Sep-15 22:40:41

I'd rather them lick my feet than my face, if it comes down to it. Just left a friends house tonight where her puppy 'said goodbye' by giving my ear a thorough lick. Good thing she's extremely cute.

goldglittershitter Sat 12-Sep-15 22:41:34

No!!!! Vile n sort of taking advantage of the poor dog. DISGUSTING angry .

WhatALoadOfOldBollocks Sat 12-Sep-15 22:44:26

I've let my dog lick my feet once or twice but it's gross, so although it feels lovely I won't be indulging in it again blush

Writerwannabe83 Sat 12-Sep-15 22:47:07

This is absolutely disgusting.

Just gross!!!

My dog will lick anything and has often tried to lick my feet but it just feels weird! He sits licking the leather sofa and it drives us mad. Mad about ears too. He climbs on the back of the sofa and will try to lick your ears. Usually after he's kicked his balls! We reckon it's to get rid of the taste of ballsack.

Battleshiphips2 Sat 12-Sep-15 22:53:56

Licked his balls I mean! My ddog does not kick his own balls.
