Your Dog Licks Their Paw
Licking feet can be a sign of anxiety, depression, stress, boredom, or canine compulsive disorder, which affects as much as 3% of dogs.

If you notice that your dog is chewing just one paw, it could be a reaction to a physical problem such as an injury.
Types of Dog Allergies
If the behavior coincides with a change of seasons, this offers a clue that an environmental allergen, such as pollen, mold, or mildew, might be triggering them.
Diseases and Illnesses
There are numerous between-the-toes skin diseases that can cause a dog to chew at its feet.
Anxiety or Depression
