Signs of discomfort

This dog licks and licks as an indication of discomfort. Licking is often misread by kids and adults. This dog is attempting to avoid a conflict and is uncomfortable with the unpredictable baby directly approaching him on the couch. The dog makes a good choice and leaves instead of growling or snapping at the baby. This is behavior that should be rewarded by the parents of the child. Reward what you want and it will continue! :)
