Licking Long Chest Hair - should we keep it short, or fight through and grow him out?
So, we had Denver shaved way back when he was neutered.
BEFORE that, he would lick his chest.. all the time. Drove me crazy. Not to the point of giving a hotspot or anything, just...I don't like hearing the lick lick lick constantly. He would knock it off when I asked him to for a bit, but go back to it. Especially annoying at 2am... LOL.
When he was shaved, he didn't lick. The hair was short and he just didn't. It was glorious.
The last 2 weeks he has started licking again as his hair is growing out. I've sprayed some bitter apple on it, but since he hadn't done it for 5 or so months, I'm thinking it's not habitual. So I'm debating...do I continue growing him out and trying to find a way to deal with the licking. Or do I keep him short when he either can't reach it, or it doesn't bother him.
Vet sees nothing that would cause it on a physical side.
