I have a 4-month-old DSH who is the sweetest, friendliest, cuddliest boy. He has started licking my hair and waking me up early in the morning to lick my hair. I think he also wants to play but the noticeable new behavior is lick, lick, licking. Any tips on how to get him to stop licking my hair?
I've read that it's a sign that he just loves me so much he wants to groom me, and if so, aww! I still don't want him to actually lick my hair. I want to show him I love him too but this is not a way he needs to express it. So far, I've been covering my whole face, head and hair with a blanket and hiding under it until he gets bored poking at me and goes back to sleep. However, it's summer and really hot under the blanket, and a little hard to breathe. Any advice would be super appreciated!
