When I am sleeping, my GSD will “nose dive” me in the forehead. She’ll do this a few times a night each time ending with my arms flaring and with me in a general state of confusion. She doesn’t have to use the bathroom… She’s been with us for over almost 3 years and she does this every night… We thought it was her checking on me, maybe my breathing pattern was slow at the time – but do dogs do that and why just me? Also, this might sound crazy…but because when my husband leaves for work (VERY early) usually I am still sleeping and my husband will just kiss me on my forehead and we thought that – my GSD was mimicking that?! I’ve learned to live with the odd quirk my GSD has, I just want to know why!!
