Benefits of Rubbing Your Dog's Ears

Dogs’ ears come in all shapes and sizes depending on the breed. Pierre has cute little perky ears while Bentley’s long velvety ears drag the ground. No matter what the size or shape of your dog’s ears, they probably enjoy having them rubbed.
That’s because their ears are one of several nerve centers on a dog’s body that is extra sensitive to being touched. The pleasure they feel is intense and those good feelings extend to their internal organs. Putting gentle pressure on the ears sends nerve impulses all through their bodies.
Rubbing your dog’s ears is also beneficial to you! It is not only relaxing, but it causes a flood of endorphins to be released and lowers your blood pressure.
Bentley and Pierre recommend rubbing your dog’s ears at least once a day.

  1. We love ear rubs and sometimes we even rub each others ears. Madison especially likes to do that.

  2. I rub the ears of every cat I meet; some like it, some not so much. But the fur on their ears is like velvet...mmmmmmm....

  3. Angel Madi had velvety ears...I loved rubbing them and she enjoyed it too

  4. No wonder I do it and the dogs demand it. It does make us all feel better. Happy Wednesday!

  5. Yup! We all enjoy a good ear scratch!

  6. Luke likes his ears rubbed, but you have to do it just right. No touching of the ends of the ears is allowed, and not even the slightest pull either (our beagle Kobi used to be the exact same way too)!

  7. Works for some cats too ;) Purrs, Zorro

  8. We love having our ears rubbed too!

  9. That's so sweet, Bentley and Pierre. Gracie and Ava love having their ears rubbed, too!

  10. What great information, all of our pups love having their ears massaged!

  11. Our pups both love having their ears rubbed, but Dav, in particular, gets right into it. She will actually start moaning and leaning into it - there's no questioning the fact that she's a fan!


I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
