Unless the older dog is trying to clean the puppy because he doesn't like puppy breath...just a thought:)

I agree. It was funny to read this thread and see how people interpret things differently!

FYI: My dogs do both....lick the mouth and private parts, if you let them.

It could also be if the pup has lost a tooth (teeth), the older pup is smelling the blood which can attract them to it. I would look in the pups mouth (yep I know its difficult); and see because they could have two teeth in the same spot, like if a baby tooth hasn't fallen out but the adult tooth is coming in...

I would watch the teeth, and see (we might try to giggle it a little), or we just leave it because it will usually correct itself!

My younger dog will lick my older dog's teeth sometimes. Actually, my vet had told me I needed to get Star's (older dog) teeth cleaned and I was dreading the vet bill. But Casey (younger dog) licked Star's teeth so much that by the next visit, my vet was impressed with how much better they looked. I don't know if it's the food particles or if Casey was just cleaning Star's teeth for her. Maybe she wants to be a dentist too!

Oh, then I think it must be because he smells food and because the puppy will let him lick in there!! (Or maybe he wants to be a dentist when he grows up! LOL!!)

I did tell her that it could be because the puppy was getting fed more
often and might have food particles in her mouth but thought that I
would ask everyone their opinion.

There is no aggression between the two. She just thought it was very
strange.

P.S. Yes, the inside of her mouth. I should have proof read. So sorry.

Yeah, if he is licking her butt or her private area I think it is just a dominance thing or he may smell urine, etc.

My male dog is always trying to stick his nose up Bella's privates when she lays on the floor spread-eagle and I tell him to back off!! It's just not polite!!

That's really interesting...and I thought my 2 dogs did wierd stuff. My Border Collie mix (male, about 4 years old & fixed) sometimes licks my Beagle/Jack Russell mix (female, about 3 1/2 years old & fixed) on her eyes (she has allergies). I think it could either be a territorial thing or him acting like her father.

If you mean her backside, my large intact male will do this to the smaller fixed male. I think it's a dominant/submissive thing....Big showing dom. and smaller, by allowing it, is showing submissivness. Also, it may be just a greeting and show of acceptance of each other. There is nothing aggressive about it. Hope that helps. If both are "consenting", then no prob. If you mean mouth to mouth, yeah....maybe she just smells good. Whichever, it doesn't sound like a bad thing.

Since joining this group, I've learned quite a bit and enjoyed the stories.
I've been passing on your knowledge, experience and wisdom (or as I have
decided to call what ALL of you possess . . . K.E.W. or KEW). And so my
KEW friends, here is a question that a friend has asked:

Why does her older dog (about 6-7 years old and fixed, male) lick the
inside of their 4 month old female puppy?

Have a sparkling day and keep up the GREAT work that you have been
doing in all aspects of your lives.
