Yes, boys get UTI's. Augie has had two of them. And while he did not go after his own penis, Finn was incessant about going after him. Augie cleans his well after he goes potty, and sometimes he will get a mat at the end of it or near it that I have to comb out. Is Mikey due for any of his shots soon? If Mikey was my dog and he seemed bothered or you feel he is doing more than cleaning himself, I would have it checked. If he does have a UTI, you don't want it going on without treatment.
You might also check for a mat that may have formed in the area from his licking - possibly it is causing his hair to pull and doesn't feel good.
