    Both Mack and Ruggles love belly rubs and butt scratches, they think that's why God gave me 2 hands!

    Lola (9mos) hates being on her back so i'm getting her used to belly rubs by turning her over myself or holding her belly up against my belly and giving her rubs until she relaxes...i keep saying let me see your belly! good girl! its only been about 2 weeks and she doesnt fight it as much. i think its so cute when pups fall asleep belly up.

    @Vicaroo1000 I tried positioning my dogs like a human baby like you said, but they act so tortured I feel bad for them! they like if I rub it as long as they don't feel their back against anything.. too funny...
    reading the posts, I noticed they're not the only ones though; maybe it's a learned behavior for some.. just gotta keep on trying.. they love their heads and butts scratched and rubbed though.. funny little creatures :S

    @acarabias - I know what you mean. Bea wasn't a huge fan either. I learned this trust exercise in a puppy class that me and Bea attended at a fancy schmancy training place called Puppy Manners out in Woodinville, WA. The owners, Dave and Becky, were amazing people.

    Folks around here have given their local PetSmart rave reviews for training classes. Having a class with each dog individually, will be a good bonding experience for you and each pup too. I'd plan them on different days - not in a row - so you have a "clean slate" (energy wise) for each pup.

    I'm tellin' ya @acarabias, if you lived closer, I'd be over in your neighborhood, trying to swipe Aldo. Those green eyes! I don't need another dog, but if one of these pups became magically within my reach, I'd have to reconsider!

For me she doesn't want to stay so long and usually struggles to get back over fairly quick, but I think it's because she prefers my butt scratches.
    Princess' don't let just anyone rub their belly..... just saying...

    Nitschke LOVED belly, back, butt, head, ANYTHING rubbed - he was a very affection human loving bully. Banks, <sigh> yeah, not at all, she is totally the opposite. even when we get in from work, she will not let either of us touch her till she smells both our hands and then she is all about a back rub to say hi... she will let us give belly rubs, but she'd rather not.

    Bullie doesn't like anything else but a Butt Rub. If we rub behind her ears, she would walk forward until her butt is under our hands. If we put her on her back and rub her belly she'll flip right over and put her butt under our hands... yep, that's it for her. Butt Rub.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    All three of mine seem to like the belly rubs but if they were actually asked to choose it would be a butt rub for all 3 of them EVERY time!!
