In severe cases, your dog may have obsessive-compulsive tendencies that lead them to obsessively lick their paws. A simple way to address behavioral paw-licking is to distract your dog. Take them for more walks, play with them more often, and offer them toys to hold their focus.

When you play with your dog, let him mouth on your hands. Continue play until he bites especially hard. When he does, immediately give a high-pitched yelp, as if you're hurt, and let your hand go limp. This should startle your dog and cause him to stop mouthing you, at least momentarily.

Perhaps the best way to stop the problem is through training and environmental management methods, including:

  1. Keep the dog's living area clean, including the yard, so there will be no poops for him to pick up.
  2. Cat owners should keep that litter box clean or out of the dog's reach.
