The most dominant of my dogs, Peanut, will sometimes come up and, if I put my face near her's, she will carefully lick the side of my mouth...just the corner. She is also the one who averts her gaze from mine when I am eating. She guards me when I go to the bathroom, too, standing sentry outside the door. And I am the only being in the house she doesn't try to herd: She has the daily routine down pat and tries to keep everyone on schedule, lol. It has always been important for her to know that I am The Big Dog in Charge and she is my little enforcer. She's a gentle enforcer, though. Everyone loves her.

I've heard of them spitting in the food dish!
And things like peeing over a dog's pee (YES in the yard) to "teach them" who is boss!

Could it be a cultural thing?
I've personally never heard of it. but, it sounds as if she was serious so, I'm thinking cultural....

(Kind of like some cultures that believe if you photograph them, it'll capture their soul..?)

I'm not into it either.

I'd just come right out and ask her though, if she calls again.

I cannot tell a lie, while I've never peed in the yard or licked/spit in a dog's mouth, I do spit in their dinner bowls if I'm having behavioral issues with them ... once they understand what I say goes I stop doing it though I may continue other practices such as NILIF.

lol ... I'll never tell

I've read that pack leaders always eat first so I figure if that's true than my scent will be on the problem dog's food (unless I give him left overs from my plate, then I don't have to spit) and he'll "think" I ate first.

If it's not true, hey, they don't care ... a little spit never hurt anyone!!!

I think it might be a cultural thing. My dad (Filipino) used to do that with our rat terrier before he passed. He and that dog were inseparable, everywhere my dad went, he was at his side, and followed my dad's commands without fail.

It was almost as if the dog was waiting for it, sometimes I would see him sit down at my dad's side, look up and open his mouth. I asked my dad about it awhile ago since I was trying to decide whether to do it with Tank or not, and he said it was a way for them to bond, and a common thing in the Philippines. (I tried it once but Tank didn't leave his mouth open long enough and I ended up spitting on him :P)
