It’s a weird (maybe gross) topic, but do your dogs ever get a little TOO into licking themselves?
I’ve been noticing lately — maybe because of the stress she’s feeling from our boxed-up, messy house — that Pyrrha is getting too intent on cleaning herself. It hasn’t devolved into obsessive behavior yet, but I certainly want to prevent her from developing a hot spot.
I sprayed some Bitter Apple on the spot she’s been focusing on, and that seemed to deter her for the afternoon. But I worry about what she’s doing when we’re at work.
Have you ever experienced this problem with your pups? What home remedies or treatments have you tried, particularly for those times that you can’t be home to monitor them?
