    Unhappy

    My puppy is just 16 weeks old, and he has started licking my kitchen cabinets. He only does it when I am not paying attention to him (cooking, reading the mail, etc). I am a neat freak and they are perfectly clean, so I don't know what the attraction is. Any ideas??? I have tried bringing toys into the kitchen, but he only plays with them a short while and then starts the licking.

    If he has only certain places that he licks, I would spray bitter apple on it when he isn't looking. This will discourage the licking without accidentally reinforcing the behavior by giving him attention when he licks.
