Otto Rocket (love the name - ask your 20-something kids) is a 4-year old Beagle mix with some serious stress/anxiety/OCD issues. He wouldn't come near me during my visit and actually barked the entire time. He also licks things constantly. I recently read an article that stated canine OCD can be caused by GI issues, so the first thing we need to do is get a medical checkup. If his problems are a result of a medical issue no amount of training will work without addressing that first.
