Leo loves licking it is his favourite thing to do. If he isn't licking me he is licking everything else, my other dog included hahaha. Sometimes when he is licking he will close his eyes it must be so relaxing for him haha

In that my first golden, Apollo Sun-Warrior, never licked me or my wife. But would regularly lick others, especially strangers.

And our two golden brothers now, Brady and Indy, never lick me, my wife, or others.

Except for brief, infrequent, licks (which we think occur because there's food on us).

So, I've thought that goldens don't lick much, due to those experiences.

Indy & Brady, brothers and soulmates

chester is a big licker, especially after naps. It's like he wakes up and automatically wants to come and give me kisses with his tail wagging. I love it. He also likes it when i grab his face soft and kiss his nose he goes crazy for that.

Is he ever - Shadow would kiss you all day if you let him. I just say "give me a kiss" and he licks my face. My boyfriend lets him climb in bed and lick his face for 20+ minutes. I don't know how he does it. Haha. Shadow also likes to give hugs. Puts his paws on your shoulder and kisses you - tail wagging like crazy. Very affectionate puppy.

Bogey will give my face a single lick "kiss" when I get home. But at night he will lick my feet (if allowed) it seems a kind of calming/grooming action for him as it is typically shortly before bed time.

Reese our Leonberger will lick my neck or ear but not my face.

Pixie loves the puppy kisses, me on the other hand...

Should mention that if possible she will go for the face!

Sparkles when she is in the mood will pin your arm and bath it its no little kisses! She will almost never lick or only give the face a small kiss. Boots will only give the teeniest nose or check lick and only like one and you have to ask. Occasionly and only for my husband he will completely try and wash hubby's neck hehe.
Tink will lick my hands if I have handlotion on or come lay on my feet and try and like the tops of my feet. I think she likes my shrieks. Once in a great while she will give a lick as a kiss on my face.

Sparkles now at the bridge, Boots at the bridge and Tink my very special heart dog.
Bridge dogs, Tuffy, Blueboy, Pudge, Shasta, Maddie, Broker, Jet, Baily, Reva, Sparkle and Boots sweet boy we are missing you so.

This is Renny's behaviour, too. When he finally does give me a kiss, it's just a tiny one, not slobbery/non-stop ones like Lacey used to give!
