First, I know the rules, here is my Rotini dog
My dog will obsessively lick things. Normally her paws. Sometimes she just licks the couch or my sheets? This is not pee, it is from licking the bed
When I notice she is doing it, I can get her to stop pretty easily by interrupting her, putting my hand in front of her mouth or getting her attention directed to a food or toy or something. Is there any issues I should be aware of with this behaviour? It doesn't seem particularly harmful, I know the vet has mentioned something about stains on her paws from licking them too much, is this something I need to be more proactive about stopping?
