If your four-legged friend cannot stop licking his paws in spite of sufficient movement and exercise and this even at night, then you should not ignore this behavior in any way, since illnesses can be the reason for a constant licking of the paws.
As we have already mentioned psychological behavioural problems such as anxiety, stress and boredom, we will mainly list medical conditions here.
