My furbaby has this obsession with licking everything and anything he comes in contact with, its to the point where i need him to stop, any suggestions? I love to have him on my bed but it seems like all wants to do is lick my sheets its to the point that theres spots and spots of saliva everywhere. He can lick for hours if i dont interrupt him. How can i control this???

My dogs do the same thing. Peanut (he's the older one) has gotten better about it. Whenever I catch them doing this I just say no and give them a toy or a chew bone to distract them from the licking. One time the wet spot was so big that I thought he peed on my bed. Peanut doesn't do it often anymore, but it's to the point that just saying no will get him to stop.

Hopefully he grows out of it, he's only 5 months..... It just gets kinda gross sometimes. :D

sometimes allergies will cause them to lick...and it doesnt have to be them licking them self..it can be other objects....or it can be just a puppy who likes to lick

Thanks!! It was one of the only pics I got with them both looking at me. Things are going really well. I'm actually a little surprised that it has been so easy for Tic to settle in. Every once in a while I catch the two of them cuddling, but most of the time TicTac is trying to bully Peanut
. Thanks for asking Jessica
