Why does my dog lick the floor after eating?
The origins of floor licking may be innocent enough - your dog may have started it after meals, when there were yummy crumbs on the floor, but such purposeful licking isn't an obsessive or compulsive behavior.
Anxiety, stress and nervousness can also cause obsessive behaviors like floor licking.
Dogs also lick because they like the taste of an owner's salty skin and out of habit.
Mostly, with domestic Dogs, it's a sign of affection.
Licking releases pleasurable endorphins which gives Dogs a feeling of comfort and pleasure — like the feeling people get when they are biting their nails — it relieves stress.
And grass-eating doesn't usually lead to throwing up - less than 25% of dogs that eat grass vomit regularly after grazing.
