Doc seems to drool quite a bit. The hair on the sides of his mouth is always wet and dirty. I've even seen saliva drip out of his mouth occasionally. I just trimmed the hair on the sides of his mouth and he looks so much neater now. Just wondered if this was common in doods and/or if this is a lab trait. :?

Maybe it's because it's been so horrendously hot here this summer. He didn't do it in the spring. Thanks for jogging my brain!

Hi Kim...you are right, the heat could cause the drooling.

I have 2 dogs that drool when going for a ride in the car, it is a sign of upset stomach...but other things can cause it too...like just panting or holding something (like a ball) in their mouth too long.

My dogs usually have wet beards but it is due to the water that they slurp up and walk away with...they always leave a trail of water when they drink.

I just remembered this don't know how I could have forgotten but when I take Lucy to Austin to get her bred she pants drools and vomits the whole way (9) hours. This last time I left her there and Tom went and got her he let her sit in the front seat on the way home NOT ONE TIME DID SHE GET SICK :!: :!: :!:

If and when I ever take her back in the front seat she will be :!: :!: :!:

That is so true, Linda! When my dogs are able to look out the front window, they stop being car sick!

I know, Brooke! I am the same way! LOL See how human these doodles are? LOL

My Goldendoodle, the one that always has a ball in her mouth (or 3) drools a lot...maybe it is the playing that causes it...but I think it is like sweating. It keeps them cool. (Messy, but cool! :D )
