You are not alone in wondering if dogs are indeed ticklish. The short answer is yes! Absolutely! Our fury friends can be super ticklish. The response to being tickled is also known as gargalesis and has been proven to be present in humans and other animals like rats and primates, and it has been found that dogs just might have this reaction to tickling and light touches too! How exciting! Are dogs super ticklish in one specific spot? Well you guessed it – dogs are super ticklish in all the same spots humans generally are. Possible spots where your furry family member may be just as ticklish include: UnderarmsNeckPawsEarsTheir back (particularly above their tail) But don’t get confused… that spot on your dog which causes them to kick or stamp their foot isn’t a ticklish spot but rather a tensing reaction so may not be as comfortable to them as you think. So why not try and find your dogs true ticklish spot. Even if you don’t find it they will always enjoy the attention no matter what.
