Questions about compulsive disorders [licking, chasing lights etc] often come up with regards to Cavaliers.


Firstly get a vet to check the dog to make sure there is nothing else going on - they may need referral to a specialist to rule out conditions.


Usually distraction techniques are used to treat these conditions, extreme cases may require medication. This isn't something that will resolve overnight especially after a long period of time.


A trainer using positive, reward based techniques should be able to help.
