    Why dogs like belly rubbing?

    I really don't know it. I only know that my dog absolutely enjoys it. Does anybody know the answer?

    As a dog owner for many years if you think about it, dogs love belly rubs because they can't reach their own bellies to rub it themselves.  It is relaxing  and it feels good such as a back rub feels good to a person.  In fact, I have always given my dogs daily massages from head to tail and this not only is enjoyed by my dogs, they relax, their muscles are manipulated in a good and healthy way and there is a lot of bonding going on between friends.  It is also healthy not only for the dog but for the human as well as it lowering your blood pressure while you are giving massages and belly rubs to your best friend.
