Why is my dog licking everything?


I have a 2 year old beagle that licks everything! My couch, the carpet, the bed, pants! It’s driving me nuts. Why is he doing this and how can I get him to stop?

      Maybe he has poor eyesight?

      Dogs learn about their environments by licking things. They smell with their tongues and noses. They don’t have fingers and that’s how they ‘touch’ things.

      not really sure why but a solution is use bitter apple spray you can get at any petstore. ive used it, it works

      My dog licks everything tooo, even the couch which is sick. We never looked into it but its probably becuase their tongue itches from allergies or that its just personality even though they may have just started to do it

      your dog has OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) take him to the vet and explain the situation and they may be able to point you in the right direction

      Maybe he is thirsty or hungry.

      Hmmm… odd behaviour for him to pick up… firstly you must check his diet… licking can be a sign of mineral or salt deficiency… once your sure its behavioural then the best this is to let him make the decision that licking is bad… put citronella or something like chilly on the main places he licks to deter him.. and if he licks your clothing, firmly say no, push him gently away and give him a toy or something to take his mind of the licking… he may be doing it out of boredom so every time he starts to lick you need to "change the subject" as it were and get his mind on to something else…
      Well good luck with him… i have a 8 week old beagle… i just love beagles…
