Hello and welcome. The original expert you asked for is not in the dog category any more. My name is ***** ***** I have been working with dogs for 25 years.

A normal healthy dog does not have a need to lick the penis so there is likely something is going on that needs testing. It may be a urinary tract infection, bladder stones or penial infection. Licking will make it worse because of the bacteria a dog's mouth has. Blood in the urine can be an indication of a UTI or stones. It is suggested you get a hands on exam and maybe drop off a urine sample to the Vet.
