Licking other dogs

Question:

My Jack Russell has a bad habit of licking her live in buddy. Her buddy is a miniature Schnouzer. She has many times created a hole in the Schnouzers coat by licking the hair completely off. It seems to happen a couple of times a year. I am wondering if this is because of something missing in her diet, or if this is some peculiar quirk in her personality. She is otherwise a very normal Jack.
