Thread: Strange Behavior

  1. #1

    Default Strange Behavior

    First off everyday my EBD amazes me. He is so fun to have around and everyday he does something different.

    The last few days he has started licking the wood door that goes to our basement. I'm not sure why he does this but he just sits there and licks away. Has anyone every had a EBD do this? Any ideas why? He has his appt next week with the vet and I will be sure to ask, but it's very very strange.

    Sometimes dogs, particularly bullies, get some OCD/anxiety issues. I'm wondering if this could be what's going on w/your boy. My bulldog Finn likes to lick the bed sheet as he lays in bed, so much so that before u know it, there's a huge circle of saliva on the bedsheet! You can try spraying some Bitter Apple or Bitter Yuck on the wood to deter him from licking.

    As other's have said, definitely a bully OCD behavior. In our last house we had sliding glass doors to the back. Vegas would sit forever and lick the doors. I had a "thick" film of saliva on the bottom half of my door. Now he just licks his feet (I know allergies) but he get's fixated on them until I have to distract him. So even though Strange Behavior, it's "normal" lol

    Blue and Wellie both lick. Blue loves to lick my pillow. Drives me crazy. Wellie the blanket.

    What works for me is giving them these plastic type of rubber bones. They switch from licking pillows/blankets to gnawing on the bones.

    Bocephus is exactly the same - will lick the carpet, the leather couch, my shoes - while they are on my feet, the tv (yep - that's always a joy).
    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.
