Dog Slobber and Dog Drool. What’s The Difference?

Dog Slobber and Dog Drool. What's The Difference?

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between dog slobber and dog drool?

I mean when your staring at your dog who has two long shoelaces dangling from their mouth do you wonder if you should call it drool or slobber?

Serious do you?

Probably not. You just call it as you see it.

I think we all have our favorite terms for the spit that pours out of our dog’s mouth. I personally like slobber or flooger.

To each their own.

But seriously, what is the difference between dog slobber and dog drool? Is there a difference in texture? Flingability?Length?

The boring answer is nothing. There is no difference between the 2 words. It’s all about the grammar.

They are both a liquid that comes out of the mouth and they both can be used as a noun or a verb.

Let’s take a closer look in this handy dandy word picture I made for you.

Looks like none of us are wrong and all of us are right.

Whether your dog drools or slobbers it’s one in the same and for those of us that have a slobbering breed, drool will always be cool.

Ha. See what I did there? I used them both in equal coolness.

I prefer the the term: " Drool " but yet again I own a Golden Retriever... she doesn't drool often. Though, we're getting a quarantine puppy, A Newfie actually!

We thought Cocoa would have more drool but she is not bad. Sometimes when there is yummy food but most of the time she is dry!!

J made a new rule. No more giving the dogs treats on the furniture, because Rodrigo and Sydney (especially Sydney) start drooling like crazy.


Maybe I should start correcting him whenever he says drool. I'll interrupt with "you mean slobber," until he gets as annoyed as I get - hee hee hee
