There are dogs, who don’t just like to sniff everything, but also like to lick everything.
The question of the century is, how can we stop that from happening, as some of the things on the ground can be very nasty.
It’s an instinctive thing for a dog to use their nose to get information, but the same goes for the tongue.
One of the things you can do is have your dog on the leash and separate them from the smell, that has all their attention. You could also redirect them with a toy. I love the ball on a rope, because you can just remove the rope and load the cavity of the ball with treats. That should help in getting your dog’s focus away from whatever he is sniffing and licking on the ground.
