Why puppies lick your neck
Many pet owners are fairly used to being licked by their dogs, and we recognize it as a sign of love and affection from our furry friends. But what happens when your dog is especially interested in licking your ears and doing it fairly often? Back when dogs lived in packs in the wild, they would lick the ears of their packmates to show that they accepted the other as a part of their pack. Essentially, this would mean that your dog is comfortable with you and likes being around you and accepts you as a member of their family. Licking is often used as submissive body language, indicating that the dog in question recognizes you as a dominant member of their pack.
