If its a new thing I would take her to the vets for a checkup. They sometimes do that with infections.

I'm not sure but my one year old female Bulldog does this to my 9 year old male terrier mix and both are spayed/nuetered. As gross as it sounds, I think it's just a form of grooming but it is nasty. I always tell Sparkles no when she starts "grooming" Rocky.

NO need for vetlaugh out loud This is a perfectly natural reaction of a male approaching sexual maturity to the smell/taste of a female. It will diminish once he's neutered. Again..perfectly normal, no need for alarm.

Just here to second Squam's post. smile Nix does this sometimes. He'll lick Ava's privates, the ground, trees which other male dogs have marked, even... I try to discourage him from doing it just because I find it totally gross, but other than being icky, it is perfectly normal for boys... Heck, Ava does it too occasionally, and she's a spayed female!

It's how they check up on the reproductive status of other dogs, as well as checking on the competition in the area by passing the scent through a gland which basically works like downloading a zip file of your life history on a computer.

Before we neutered Clyde, he did that to just about every pee spot he could find. Just one of the quirks of owning an intact male. I've known two otherwise well-mannered intact males who did the same.

My female Akita is 6 and has been spayed since age two. My male Akita is 3 and has been neutered since he was 7 months( I know,Iknow,not something I will do again) but they tend to lick each other in those places nightly as well as clean each others ears,nails,heads,and even teeth,since they tend to just do it as part of their nightly grooming we have learned to ignore it,they do not taste or shiver,lip lick,or anything like that,it is more like a mother would clean a puppy in their case,a quick swipe to clean the other up. We did mention it to the vet at one point and were told it was simply their way of grooming the other. Nothing to be concerned about.
