Hello, our mini-long-haired-dachshund is almost 3 years old and has always licked, but mainly specific times or situations, and sometimes drives us crazy. With food his very upfront and similar to a bulldozer, but quite anxious at other times, e.g. won't sit by himself in another room, always wants company. But never left alone at home. The main issue is first thing in the morning, when we've given him his breakfast and he's allowed onto our bed. He goes into his ritual morning welcome wriggles round our shoulders and pushes the side of his face on either side of my wifes face. Then he'll settle into her arms and lick her arms or lay down on the bed and just lick the bed till a wet patch is formed. He will settle down but after 10 minutes or so. The next situation is if he sits on my knee, he'll try to lick my clothes, quite intent. Stops after a few minutes. Doesn't lick himeself too much at all, seldom really. The clothes licking is managable, but the morning licking is a nightmare, any tips? Thank you.
