    Weird dog behavior

    I know that your dog has some very unusual behavior let's discuss, share and understand these behaviors.

    In my case my dog runs around in circles and barks when he sees some dogs, he doesn't do it to every dog he sees.

    Well my mini schnauzer has a real wierd behavior,
    He sucks on his little sisters ears, she doesn't seem to mind it most of the time and he never hurts her but her ears gets all slimey and wet and
    they are turning a brown color from the saliva, he also sticks his whole paw in his mouth, my husband says he's sucking his thumb.
    any suggestions on how to correct this behavior?

    It could be a sign of stress in your dog. Try doing some "CALMING SIGNALS" with him/her.

    Sucking his paws could be allergies. What does your vet say?

    The vet examined his paws and said he cant see any damage done and no infections or anything,
    and left it at that, do I need to consult another vet? It disturbs me more when he sucks on his little sisters ears and makes them all wet and slimey.

    We as humans are always wanting second opinions... maybe a second opinion from another Vet is a good idea. That's what I would do if it were me. Did your Vet test for allergies or anything? Or did he just examine the paw?

    Also, switching to a doggy medicated shampoo may help, as well as bathing your dog once a week.
