Reasons to Know  Why Does My Dog Drool Around Puppies

We usually associate drooling with wanting to eat a tasty treat, so when your adult dog drools around your new puppy, it’s easy to get alarmed.

It may be weird, but here are five of the top reasons for that extra slobber dripping from your dog’s jaws.

Your Dog is Stressed

Meeting a new puppy is quite an event for a dog that already lives in your house. It can be confusing and scary for them, and their anxiety might kick in the hyperactivate drooling process.


Your Dog is Excited

Friendly doggos that tend to be affectionate might get excited to meet a new puppy. This isn’t a problem per sé, but it can become one if they get overexcited.



They Might Be Jealous

Jealousy is a strong emotion similar to stress that your furry friend can experience, and when they do, they might drool much more than usual. 


Their Sex Drive is Being Activated

You wouldn’t think a puppy can kickstart a sex-driven reaction, but pheromones don’t lie. If your pup is old enough to start becoming sexually mature or is already in heat, it’s rare but possible.


They’re Experiencing a Medical Issue

It may just be that your furry friend begins to display symptoms of an underlying issue around the same time they meet a new puppy.
