Limo just turned a year on the 22nd.
Chewing - he wants to "chew" to destroy toys, whether they are hard plastic, soft plastic, fuzzy, etc. He does have Kongs and Nylabones to "chew" on, but will this destroying ever end????
Licking - He's a huge licker of people's hands. I don't mind, sometimes, but I try and tell him ENOUGH! when I want him to stop. Will he learn?

The Love of My Life
Rest in peace my Sweet Chocolate
I Love You and Miss You so much
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Question 1 - depends on the Lab. Mine are destroyers of toys and I don't mind. Others dogs don't do that of their own accord. I don't think it is something you can teach.
Questions 2 - mine do this too - if you don't like it remove your hand from his reach. He'll get the message.
