My dog constantly licks his lips. I believe it has become a habit. How do I get him to break this annoying habit?

Answer

You would first have to determine whether this may stem from a medical problem such as nausea. Nausea and acid reflux or other issues such as IBD can cause a dog to lick their lips frequently. Only after ruling out a health problem can you assume it's a habit and try to work on it.
