It gives them a sense of comfort. It calms them and makes them feel secure. They also LOVE to be stroked on their ears..just rub your palm down their ears to the back of their neck.

Dogs like belly rubs because they have a special organ known as cuslopagis, which when contacted, it activates a nerve cell signaling comfort

The Dogs Like Belly Rubs for the same reason we humans like our head to be gently rubbed.They feel very relaxed and enjoy that rub.

Dogs love belly rubs because they feel so good to them.  They are relaxing and the dog's belly is one of the best places to pet them.  They show trust and when you treat them sweetly they respond with fondness, and I believe, love.

Because dogs can't scratch their backs because their joints don't bend like ours so the want you to rub their bellies so they can get it scratched or they might want you to scratch or rub off a flea
