Why does my dog lick my hand when I give him a bath and shows aggression when I touch his paws for cleaning?

Hi Sunny, my dog constantly licks my hand whenever I give him bath, what behaviour it shows, Is he doing it out of aggression. Also sometimes when I touch his paws for cleaning he shows aggression and tries to bite me (do not bite) and later starts licking my hand. Please share your thoughts. Thanks

Sunny Luthra explains that these behaviors are the dog's way of communicating discomfort, especially since paws are very sensitive for dogs.

  1. In both the cases he is asking you to be gentle.
    Paws are the most sensitive part of dogs, so if we hurry or apply too much pressure while cleaning then dogs become uncomfortable which they communicate by licking, snarling, growling, showing teeths, biting.
