Q. I have a 1 yr old male, white coat Shiba Inu that won't stop licking and nibbling on his front legs paws. The vet gave him a shot, he seemed relief.

A. It is possible your dog suffers from environmental allergies but sometimes the chewing and licking can become a habit even after medication has worked. You can try getting another round of medication. In the meantime, putting a cone (E collar) on your dog when you can't supervise him will keep him from engaging in the behavior. Otherwise, when you notice he begins to do it, redirect him with a favorite game, doing commands, or simply giving him affection.
