A bit of ocd......some bullies constantly lick their paws.....or like Vin ...their chests....he might have an irritation there.......if his skin goes pink it might be something hes allergic to to or irritated by have a look......any other ideas Ruth?

Try him with tripe (pet grade not human grade) or chicken wings.

Distract him when he starts licking, with a toy / ball, once they start something they tend to focus on it. otherwise a trip to the vets for allergy testing may be an option?

Yes the licking ocd I reckon as The Londons say, Archie licks his paws something rotten
so I tell him to stop or distract him with his stag chew.
Let us know how you get on

Paddy licks his paws now and then but he likes having his toys to lick/chew instead
