    Cool My Girl Licking

    Hi All, I have this beautiful dog who is 13 months old, she has an inherint desire to 'lick' and I don't seem to be able to get her out of it, can anyone give me any idea how to stop her licking.
    Thanks in advance

    The most effective way would be to keep her calm and remove your attention EVERY time she licks you. It is hard, and might seem a bit cruel but it is the best way to let her know that you dont want her to do it.
    So when she licks take your hands away. The moment she stop trying to lick and sit quietly, give her all the, calm, attention she can get. If she licks, take your hands away.
    Good luck!

    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    Licking helps release feel good calming serotonins.

    Maybe a distraction would work??
