Default Dog eating salt!

Hi everyone! Just recently my Claire has been licking the winter salt off of the floor mats & boots in the closet. Has anyone experienced this before with their dog? Is the salt harmful? I'd think it would be but not sure how much. I shake the salt that gets tracked into the house off the mats and keep the closet doors closed. As soon as I open the closet though, Claire is right there licking the salt off the boots. Tonight she has tried scratching at the closet door to get it open. I think her senility has got worse.

Personally I would NOT let my pack eat salt. No way...
