Hi there, I hope to help. How long has she done this?
in the last 2 months it has gotten more persistent and frequent
i had a connection issue
have there been any diet changes recently?
for six months she has been on Hills Prescription Diet r/d food
is she overweight then?
or why was the food started?
does she lick everyone or just you?
when she sleeps with one of my daughters or sits with her on the couch she does it to her as well
It may be that she likes the salty taste of your skin, especially since she is on a restricted diet. She may also "remember" a time when you had something yummy on your handsforherto get a taste of. I find when dogs are on arestricted diettheyare much more interested in people food and scraps, even dogs who weren't previously. Has she lost weight using the r/d?
yes she has lost about a half a pound so far, but what you say makes sense
good luck with the weight loss!
thank you for your help
any suggestions on how to get her to stop?
