Anybody else get 'slapped' by their dogs? Lucky hasn't picked this habit up .....yet. But Happy has done it as long as I've had him. He litterally slaps you with his paws. My face has gotten pretty scratched up from it. He does it when he's ...well he's always Happy...but when you're petting him sitting down or you've quit petting him and he wants your attention...WHACK across the face if you're not careful.
I've repeatedly caught his paw and said "NO Paws down!!"
Doesn't seem to phase him.
Maggie pats my leg. Dakota has started to smack my leg Only if I am in the way do i get it in the face.
My Samson used to smack my leg all the time when he wanted a pigs ear and I wasn't moving fast enough for him.
Stupidest thing I did was teach Shanny to shake hands. She has smacked me along side the head a few times.

Frankie does it in the middle of the night when he wants us to lift him up on the bed (big baby, he can do it himself!) ;D

Yup, Abby's a smacker. I'm gonna get a black eye one of these days I think.
Me, Abzilla and the Helomonster.
Clarence is a smacker too. I think he intentionally goes for my face. He slaps my knees if I'm sitting on the couch and he wants up. Kind of cute until I have a huge scratch on my face...
Billie slaps the edge of the bed with both feet when its time to get up. If that doesn't work she jumps up and sits on me. She'll also whack me on the knee to get my attention... :
Yup - Goliath does it -most often after I clip his toes, so I've gotten it in the face several times and Kody will slap my leg when he says hello to me when I get home from work - it usually leads up to his standing/jumping up to give me a hug.
I Guess you can say Tater B*tch slaps me all the time. SOrry for the language. But he does that to everyone. If you get down to his level watch out, you are fair game. But its funny how they really do use their paws as hands.
