CharlieB.Barkin Both of my dogs do this. It always reminded me of how cats will rub themselves against you as they walk by.

Anubis_Star I encourage and train this behavior, or a side lean into legs, as the standard greeting for my dogs. I feel much less chance of them getting excited and jumping vs. A dog sitting in front of someone to be pet
