Dog continually licking other dog....

November 9th, 2005, 02:35 PM
This was extracted from another thread I posted earlier, as I would like an answer but I think this original question may have got lost in the other post.

Why does my neighbour's younger dog
continually lick the older one from head to toe for great lengths of time? Unless the owner intervenes, the dog will keep licking the other and this starts the growling etc.

My theory is dominance and the younger is trying to claim ownership of the other dog....

I will take any and all ideas here....
