Do dogs clean themselves

Does anyones dog clean themselves? Joey will lick his fur like hes cleaning it like a cat.

Is this normal. I hope he doesnt get fur balls. Perhaps its related to his collecting behavior.

lol my malamute puppy does this to. even licks his paws and washes his face. He also gets fur stuck in his throat and will gag and cough for a min. and not to be really gross but u can see the fur in his daily poops I asked the vet about this when he was younger( i thought it might be a nervous disorder) he said some dogs do that but I should be extra careful when walking him that de doesn't go near anybodys yard that has had a fertilze put on it.

Sophie is a licker. She licks her feet all the time. I call her my 4 legged make up remover.

My dog also baths herself like a cat. Washes her paws then
her face. Licks everywhere she can reach just the same way a cat
does.
My Boyfriends Aunt's pomeranian also does the same thing.
