Can dogs get tickled?
Tickling is a form of aggression, and tickling requires the tickled to respond to aggression with laughter, indicating submissiveness. It is probably only a human on human thing. Also, it appears that dogs do not have the ability to laugh.
Yes and no. Knismesis is widespread in mammals, including dogs. Scientists have come to the conclusion that it is a natural reflex reaction. But as far as we know, dogs don’t experience gargalesis in response to a vigorous tickle attempt from their human.
