I have a six-year-old Doberman and for the past few months, I've noticed that he has started licking fabric on a really regular basis. He basically licks anything with fabric on, like the sofa, the carpet or even our clothes. I'm just a little concerned as to why he's doing it and if it could be a sign of something more serious.
For a little background, he is a pretty active dog and gets a lot of exercise every day. He also eats well and has never had any major health issues. The only thing that has changed in his routine is that we've moved to a new house recently. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with his behaviour.
Has anyone else experienced this with their Doberman or any other dog? Could it be a sign of anxiety or boredom? Or is there something else going on? Any advice or insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
