We're having an issue with our boy's licking... As dog lovers, we are well aware and prepared for typical, loving displays of affection from our drooly boy 9 month old English bulldog Earl. That being said, he has taken things to another level. His licking has become nothing short of obsessive. It started a few months ago with licking our skin after putting lotoin on after a shower, & has now spread to licking legs at the dinner table, a spot on the floor/carpet/rug/furniture that may or may not have something on it, sometimes the wall and hardware on closet doors. All of this is tolerable, strange, but we were dealing. His latest "obsession" are the male parts of other dogs. He doesn't hesitate to REPEATEDLY lick the privates of our friends, family, & neighbors' dogs.
We are totally embarrassed and would really like to put an end to this behavior! Any ideas?? We've tried the obvious pulling him away, telling him "no", etc.
