    Licking her newborn puppies is an important and critical step in the health of growing puppies. ... Mother dogs lick their puppies' genitals to stimulate the reflex to urinate and defecate.

    when mother dogs really love and care about their little ones by licking them to keep the puppies stay clean and healthy and giving them some loves .it same like human mothers give love to their children . so your dog doing that to hers . its healthy and normal for all animals mothers hoods . dont need to worried so much about it .

    @ bluebonnetgranny did this person say they are breeding? No! They simply asked a question, they may not even own a dog! Learn how to read before posting and assuming! Dogs do this for many reasons to clean them, and to help stimulate to go potty!

    Another ignorant BYBer.  Mama's do that to stimulate the pups to pee & poop.  Do some research on raising puppies.  Not knowing anything about breeding dogs can lead to some serious issues.  I wish BYBing could be banned so people cannot breed their pets.  You need to know A LOT more than you know.  Ignorance is not bliss.

    That poor mummy pug looks too old to have had a litter.... and this is a stock photo that tells you why the dog is licking the pup.

     In order to clean and disinfect the pups cos the pup doesnt know how to clean  itself yet: Or possibly to stimulate the pup to urinate

    To make the baby poop.  Very young puppies need help with that.  Are you glad humans don't?

    This is to clean them and make sure the genitals aren't dirty. Mother dogs (or bitches if you're going to use the actual term) clean their pups regularly. What the other person said could also be right as well.

    I guess she's stimulating them to pee.
