Default How do you pet your chis?

Just curious.

Tango loves for me to scratch behind his ears. He'll nuzzle my hand, trying to get his head under it and when he does, if I don't immediately start moving my fingers and doing the ear rub thing, he'll rub his head first one way and then the other against my hand, to get me to start.

Jazz on the other hand loves for me to stroke her back, starting at her head and going all the way down to her tail. She doesn't mind me doing her ears the way I do Tango's, but she MUCH prefers the back stroke. She'll even sometimes arch her back, much like a cat does, as my hand's traveling down. She also likes to be rubbed and tickled under her chin, whereas Tango will jerk his head away if I try and do that, and re-position his head UNDER my hand to get behind his hears scratched. .

Toby likes it when i put a half open hand infront of him and he pushes his head through the space in my hand. He LOVES it when i scratch that spot at the base of his tail where he can't reach. His reaction is to flea me.

My girls aren't really "belly rubbing" dogs. With Butter, she likes her inner ears to be massaged, neck to be scratched, and I rub her front legs for her as well. Occasionally I'll scratch her boney chest for her but it feels weird...she's sooo skinny..I can feel (and see) her rib cage.

With Britney, she loves her ears (inner and outer) to be massaged as well, I scratch the top of her head and neck, and I pet her from the top of her head to just before the beginning of her tail.

Haha, thats my billys fav spot. He nibbles me when i do that. He cant get enought. I also or rather he likes to be vigeriously stroked along his sides. He gets really excited and gets the zoomies! So Sweet.

Well dad roughs Lola up lol. She loves to play fight with him. He'll grab her and pretend to slam her down and punch her and then he blows her belly. It sounds horrible but she loves it. With my sister she just flops like a rag doll and lays on her back for belly rubs. She goes all floppy lol. With me she just bulldozes straight up to my face and kisses my like mad and I stroke her face.

Cookie must be stroked on his own terms, he hardly lets yo touch his belly. Usually he like a stroke on his back but gentle.
