Elliot always uses Justin's ear to suck on it.
He lays next to him take his ear in his mouth and sucks on it like a baby.
Justin does not mind but his ear is always wet and from slime off Elliot.
Does anyone knows the reason for it and how can I stop it?

I had exactly that in my latest litter. One of the dogs would suck the other puppies ears and unfortunatly I had promised to keep a couple of puppies for a longer time as their owners were away on various holidays and the "earsucker" was one of them. I could not put a stop to it. But then they were only puppies (maximum age 13 weeks). The mother of these was there and quite willing to give milk, so it was not as if he was deprived in any way.
With older dogs, I think I would try to put something that does not taste so nice on the ears that are being sucked.
