Noting is more adorable than dogs playing together! Many dogs love playing with other dogs, running around, sniffing one another, and having fun! But what does it mean if your female dog drools around male dogs?
There are several reasons a female dog may start to drool around male dogs. Let’s take a look!
When a dog is happy, you know it! Dogs look happy, and how this in their faces, tail wags, and more! Some female dogs may even drool around male dogs because they’re happy!
When your dog is happy, she’s relaxed, wagging her tail, and may have a “smile” on her face. Her tongue may even hang out the side of her mouth, with drool coming out, too!
This type of drooling is normal and nothing to worry about. It means your female dog is happy to see and play with the male dogs!
2. Sexual Excitement
Another common reason for a female dog to drool around male dogs is sexual excitement. It’s possible that your female dog may be excited to be around male dogs if she’s in heat.
If your female dog is in heat and you don’t want her to have puppies, it’s imperative to have her fixed. Otherwise, the male dogs will vie for her attention and try to mate with her!
Female dogs may also drool around male dogs because of stress. This may be the case if your female dog is meeting some new male canines. One of the males may not be that friendly and could cause your dog to feel stressed.
About the only thing you can do in this situation is to remove your female dog to a place where she feels calm and at ease. However, if your female dog seems to have a regular problem with drooling around male dogs, it may be a good idea to have her checked by the vet. She may need something to help calm her nerves or even special socialization to learn how to behave around other dogs.
A female dog may also drool around male dogs if she’s afraid. Is one or more of the male dogs being aggressive? If so, it’s a good idea to take your female dog home, where she can feel relaxed and safe.
Your dog may need more socialization and/or need to avoid certain dogs that act aggressively toward her.
