I need to lick!
Barked: Tue May 22, '07 6:35pm PST 
Emme constantly has to lick...anything... her paws, our feet, legs, hands, all of the other dogs faces and paws, and any kind of blanket. Does anyone else do this?

Stop! You little- fart-nugget!

Gabby also seems preoccupied with cleaning things but not to the extent that she overgrooms herself or concentrates on inanimate objects. I see other house mates. I would make sure she gets plenty of one on one time and also plenty of exercise. Keeping her mind on her great home life may alleviate some of the licking. Wishing you the best success with your little sweetheart!

Maximo licks his paws first thing when he wakes up and it's the last thing he does before we go to bed at night. When it's time to get up he licks my chin or nose to wake me up. smile

Samurai is a big licker as well...he kisses everyone that will let him as well as other dogs. At night I have to ask him to settle down (if I yell he does it more) because he is licking licking licking cleaning himself but I want to sleep...the cream off my legs my deoderant....he licks me in the morning after I have given him his belly rub for 20 minutes, I think it is a thank you but who knows!

For sure! My chin will lick the skin off of you if you let her. She obsessively cleans her front paws, but if you play with her and give her something to do she generally settles down. I think it is a boredom thing, but also the fact that chins are known to be one of the "cleanest" breeds for this very reason.

Sake licks his paws all day...and all night. It's become a family and friends joke.

it might be an allergy, my vet diagnosed my brother prince as having atopy, some kind of dermatitis, because he is always licking his paws. he was given a shot and he stopped licking his paws! as a follow up, my mom sprays his paw pads when he starts to lick them. she also washes our paws after talking a walk.
