I'm new to the forum and it looks to be a great place for basenji lovers. I have a four year old male who has recently started to lick his back feet. At first I wondered about allergies, but he rarely licks the his front feet. His back feet are a different story. He has licked them to the point where they are scabbing over. He is crated during the day, so I do my best to keep him exercised. I wonder if this licking is from boredom?
Anyone else experience this? I doubt it is a nervous condition since he seems to be very happy and relaxed.
