Licking white German Shepherd

by Becky

I have a wonderfully smart white german shepherd that is four and a half months old. Of my family members I am his. He is very protective all of us but me above all.

He does this odd thing though, every morning he grooms me until I get up and take my bath or shower. Do you know why this is? And why doesn't he groom my daughters or fiance?

And should I correct him because it rarely hurts, but occasionally it will pinch and leave a bruise.

My 5 month old GSD puppy does this to me whenever I rub her spot on her tummy. He is just showing you affection and unless it bothers you, it's okay. A word of warning though, if he becomes too protective of you such as not letting your fiance show you affection then he see's you as his mate and the behavior should be stopped. But unless this happens (and it probably won't) then I wouldn't worry about it.

By the way, he is beautiful!
