Cage Licking

Licking is a stress-reliever for dogs - it usually means they're anxious. Is he panting, too? You could work on distracting him and then treating him for calm behavior, or you could get a noise sound CD and gradually desensitize him.


I always worry, with storm-adverse dogs, that it will get worse on its own.

Muddgirl is right, this is an anxiety behavior. My grey licks metal things when he's nervous. You could try some of the things Muddgirl listed to help calm your grey.
