So you can quickly navigate to know about your breed. 

So let’s get started.

Here is a quick answer.

Why do dogs drool? Dogs tend to drool due to several reasons. These reasons can be natural or abnormal. Outstanding reasons can be due to the scent of food, during playing, the sign of a good hunter, sick, nervous, stress, anxious, and many more. But the amount of drool varies by breed.

In most cases, this feature can be a bit annoying because many dogs tend to shake their head during slobber. So drools fly everywhere, sometimes even to your face.

Due to the above reason, most housewives do not allow dogs to enter the kitchen or close to the dining table.  

But you must understand one thing. This behavior is a perfectly reasonable and necessary phenomenon for the excellent health of your dog.


Why do dogs drool? The normal circumstances

Why do dogs drool

There are many natural reasons for dogs slobbering. Here are the possible causes,

  • When dogs feel the scent of foods
  • When they are playing
  • During teething
  • Sign of a good hunter
  • When dogs feel a little bit nervous
  • When excited
  • Due to stress

When dogs feel the scent of foods

We discussed that people don’t like to keep dogs near the dining table because dogs tend to drool when they feel the scent of food. 

In fact, their slobbering can be increased while you are making food for them. Because, they tend to think, “Why is this taking so long?”

When they are playing

Many dog breeds tend to drool extraordinarily when they are playing. In most cases, this can happen while they are running strongly with another dog. 

Ironically, the dogs look a little too funny when they play because their nose is covered with sand.

Dogs love toys. Sometimes, you will see some sort of drooling as they are playing with their favorite toys.

Dogs tend to drool during the teething period.

Puppies love chewing toys during their teething period. So it’s a pretty normal thing having extremely drooling as they chew their toys. 

Sign of a good hunter

We know every dog has bred for a specific purpose. Meanwhile, some dogs have bred for hunting.

So if dogs are drooling so much, that’s a genuine indication of the excellent hunting dogs. Therefore their salivating is not something to worry about.

 Furthermore, dogs salivate to increase the sense of smell. 

Many dogs have proven to be extremely salivating in the field. If you have a dog, bring him into an open space. You will see some sort of increasing their drooling. 

Why do dogs drool

Also, occasionally foaming can happen. It increases when they explore something.

That is a fascinating relationship between some dogs’ drooling and their hunting performance. 

Even in poor weather conditions, some hunting dogs are able to find a bird and point it out. Most vizslas after successful bird retrieval tend to stop their continuous salivating.

When dogs feel a little bit nervous

In most cases, you can see dogs tend to drool as they are afraid. For example, look at the following scenarios.

  • When they feel that you are going to cut their toenails.
  • You can see some sort of slobber from them while waiting in the examination room for the vet. 

Dogs can drool as they get excited.

Dogs tend to drool as they feel a sexual desire. This mostly can happen for a male one as he feels the smell of a female dog. 

When considering female dogs, they can slobber as they feel the smell of dogs. Also, it can happen when they are going to their first heat because they can get excited at the moment.

When they are stressed.

Many dogs have proven that their drooling can be increased as they are stressed. The typical examples are,

  • If you yell or blame at them
  • if you tie-up your dog.
  • In most aggressive situations, such as aggressive toward another dog or a stranger.

These are very reasonable reasons for dogs’ salivating. So you don’t need to bother too much about it in these cases. 

But on the other hand, there is a bad side to their drool. Let’s find out about it.

The abnormal circumstances

Well, you have read all the reasons for natural situations. But if you noticed that your dog starts to slobber suddenly and continuously, it can be some sort of health weakness or illness.

So most dogs used to play, run, throughout the day.

So it’s reasonable to have some muscle weakness.

Due to mouth problems.

Most dogs tend to play with sticks as they play in the yard. So there is a possibility of sticking something between their two teeth. 

Perhaps this is the case because of tooth decay or mouth diseases. Therefore it is imperative to take care of these things.

Yes. Vizslas drool! Sometimes excessively. 

Vizslas were originally bred for hunting purposes. So these dogs tend to drool while hunting throughout the day. 

Many vizslas suffer from separation anxiety. Also, these dogs are easily susceptible to stress as people keep vizslas alone for a long time

So, vizslas used to drool when they feel stress, anxious, and nervous. 

Vizslas are hunting dogs with high prey drive, and they need strenuous exercises every day, such as running, swimming, hiking. 

So, often you will see vizslas drool excessively while playing. And also, during hot days, it can be increased. 

In general, vizslas’ normal and abnormal circumstances for drooling are similar to those of common dogs.

Do bloodhounds drool?

do bloodhounds drool

Yes. Bloodhounds drool excessively more than any other dog out there.  

Bloodhounds were originally bred for hunting deers, wild boars. So as we discussed above, bloodhounds excessively drool because this breed is a hunting breed. 

Since the middle ages, people have used bloodhounds as tracking dogs. 

Bloodhounds have pretty sensitive noses, and they can track and follow a specific scent for long distances. So excessive drool is common among dogs that have excellent tracking ability. 

Bloodhounds have hanging jaws, and often, these dogs love to keep their head down and scent the ground. 

So, as a result, saliva dripped copiously from their mouths. 

Many people don’t like to keep bloodhounds inside because of their excessive drooling. 

As I mentioned above, these dogs often shake their head while drooling. That’s so annoying to owners. 

So, when we consider normal and abnormal circumstances for bloodhounds’ drooling, It’s pretty much the same as other dogs.

It can be due to bad or normal reasons. But these dogs’ amount of drool is very less than the other dogs.

But in some cases, we can see considerable drooling after drinking water.

In fact, Bernese mountain dogs tend to drool while chewing toys or any other things. As I mentioned above, obviously chewing things can lead to poor health. 

But, many Bernese mountain dog owners proved that they do not tend to do destructive chewing when you are away from home. 

But when we consider some great Pyrenees to be very destructive, they tend to chew every furniture in your house. 

As Bernese mountain dogs are not big chewers, they do not fall their drool everywhere in your house. 

But they love to chew bones. 

This dog has a long history as a farm dog in origin; it’s in the foothills of the Alps as well as plains near where it was born in Switzerland.

They are great all-rounders, and they originally used a guard dog, cattle herding dog, and a draught dog to pool products to the market. 

So Bernese mountain dogs tend to drool up to some degree while dragging carts. It naturally happens with breathing while dragging the cart.

Do Bernedoodles drool?

Yes. Bernedoodles do drool. Actually, many dogs drool to an extent. But Bernedoodles’ amount of drooling is less than half as much as other dogs. So many people call them dry-mouthed dogs.  

Like other dogs, they are likely to slobber a little bit more as they feel the scent of foods. 

Honestly, the Behaviour of these dogs is very similar to what Bernese mountain dogs have because Bernedoodles are a combination of Bernese mountain dogs and poodles.

We discussed above that Bernedoodles are not big droolers because these dogs have somewhat similar genetics as Bernese mountain dogs. 

As these dogs are mixed dog breeds, they have fewer health issues than their parent breeds. 

But it doesn’t mean that dogs’ abnormal circumstances of drooling are not affected by Bernedoodles. 

In fact, we have discussed the abnormal and reasonable reasons for dogs drooling. So all those reasons also apply to these dogs.
