    Default Licking everything all the time

    Utley licks everything. He will sit there and lick the couch or blanket non stop unless you make him stop. Any suggestions on how to break him of this habit?

    Don't purchase dogs from pet shops or " licker stores!" Sorry, couldn't resist. My dogs lick each other alot. Does he have toys to chew on-maybe get him a large Elk antler to distract him from the licking. It is probably an ocd habit. Need something to distract him from it. Or a kong with peanut butter, or some treat in it.

    Aubie does this too. Sometimes she has to get in trouble to stop and won't even then. We try to get her to play with a toy or just get her attention elsewhere. She needs a "licker" license for that thing!

    Aubie is too young to apply for a "likker" license.

    June licks things right after she eats. Usually my leg, the wall, her bed, the couch...whatever she's close to after she eats lol it's like she's cleaning her tongue?!

    Loki will occasionally link whatever he can until you tell him no. It is easily redirected by a toy that involves thinking like a treat stuffed Kong or other chew toy.

    Like June, Charley licks things after eating, drinking water, and less frequently at other times. I agree it is like he is drying or cleaning his tongue.

    Thank you all for the comments and advice. We have not given Utley peanut butter before can we give him any kind or would anyone recommend a specific one?

    We had a doormat that said… "WARNING… dog can't hold his licker" LMAO!!!

    probably natural peanut butter-smooth, no sugar added!

    Norm likes to settle into the couch and lick, lick, lick, slurp, lick, slobber. I was wondering if it was an EB thing, a Norm thing, or just a deep appreciation of our leather couch...
