My Doberman male, just 2 years old licks his anus every time

Customer Question

my Doberman male, just 2 years old licks his anus every time he is lying down if he isn't licking that he is licking his penis it is very annoying because he is noisy and he also marks the things he is sitting on like his lounge chair or my bed.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the Doberman's name?
Customer: Casper
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Casper?
Customer: no apart from that he's crazy, he has passed obedience classes 2 so far, he is a typical teenager and very playful. He does whine though. If he is out the back and we go out the front he whines, loudly, almost sings, if I take him in the car to the dog park he "sings" the whole way there squeals, he also does it when we first go out to go somewhere and leave him home.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Is Casper neutered? 2) If so, at what age was he neutered? 3) Any scooting behaviors on the carpet? 4) Any blood in his urine? 5) The things that he marks, does he always lift his leg on them or does he squat, as well?
