My Pug, Bailey licks excessively. I'm concern that it might be some deficiency. He licks everything, but the most annoying is our bedding a fabric furniture. He will lick a huge wet spot on our recliner etc. Can anyone tell me what to do about this. I asked the vet, but he said it was common for some dogs to lick.

You know, in most breeds, I would say that licking can be a calming behavior, but not with pugs. I'm sure I am not the only pug owner who will tell you that pugs lick...everything...constantly.

They lick your arms and legs, they lick the couch, they lick the kitchen floor. Just one of the many interesting pug behaviors that will either make the breed endearing or drive you batpoop.
