    I've noticed over the last couple of weeks that both of my pups have been liking their paws... I haven't noticed any severe redness, we have been SUPER busy lately. Can they just start doing this out of boredom?!! Lol

    It could be allergy related but it is possible it could be from boredom. Some dogs do it out of habit or because it is soothing.

    Were both licking “before” you changed the food? As only one is eating raw n not the other so basically if the answer is no they weren’t licking their paws “before” I don’t see why it would be the food if Willow still hasn’t touched the raw.

    boy oh boy,,, my favorite subject.......... FOOD Our dogs are so lucky to have us And one thing that stands out here is how my Shih Tzus hated raw and all the trouble i went through to get them to eat it. I would take a piece of meat and hold the 'fat' over a flame to get some flavor to it, hand it to them and they would lick that part then move on to the raw... BUT if i didnt do that, they wouldnt touch! and oh they DO remember so be carful what you start. haha

    Is Walter still getting beef or did you switch proteins already? It could be the protein but then Willow isn't eating the same as Walter so odd they would both start licking at the same time if it was food related.

    I plan on switching him this next round... I have beef in the freezer.

    I honestly think it's from boredom... it's been SO super hot here, but today it is finally cooling off and we can start taking daily walks again!!!

    Willow refuses to eat raw, but I got him some Stella & Chewys dehydrated raw to see if she will eat it.

    They would occasionally lick their paws, but nothing noticeable... I honestly think it's boredom. We had to forgo the daily walks because of the heat... bring on FALL!!!

    I think the paw licking is very possibly from the heat as well. My boy is out of shape for the first time in his life because of this heat and he is board!!! and i watch him look around for something to do and then lay down and lick his feet like it's soothing to his board brain. It's been a long hot summer here, and hank and i have paid a price. Im out of shape too :O
