Our dogs require consistency in their daily routines to remain happy and healthy. When that routine is disturbed, an emotionally sensitive dog can become upset and anxious. A new baby or a new pet in the family, or something simple such as a change in diet or altering the time you normally come home from work, can easily push some dogs into fits of anxiety and they'll lick their paws as a way to comfort themselves.Additionally, take into consideration the outside temperature and the walking surface. Black surfaces can be extremely hot to a dog’s sensitive paws. Also keep in mind, dogs don’t sweat as humans do (much of their heat is released through their paws and panting).
