Many times accumulation of yeast is due to feeding a food that is high in carbohydrates - i.e. food that contains corn, potato, sweet potato, wheat, rice, etc. Yeast feeds on sugar and carbohydrates get converted to sugar when digested.

Wow! I had no idea. Diesel doesn't lick his feet much, so I wouldn't have guessed. What's a ACV soak?

ACV = Apple Cider Vinegar. Not all ACV is created equal. To get the maximum health benefits make sure to use organic raw unfiltered ACV the one with the "Mother" in it. ACV is never to be used at full strength on an open sore or broken or irritated skin because it will sting. If your dog has been licking his skin enough to cause irritation or sores make sure to dilute 50/50 with water

I feed him EUKANUBA Puppy Lamb and Rice Formula Puppy. What in his diet can be causing this?

He doesn't lick his feet a lot, I will sometimes see him chewing on his foot and I always correct him. He used to have a hotspot on his back foot, which is gone now so I think he's not doing it anymore.

Is moister what causes this? It has been very rainy and humid for the past few weeks.

So it may be his new food, I just switched the flavor from chicken to lamb and rice because it didn't seem like he was agreeing with the chicken and I know some dogs can become intolerant to the flavor.

There are better choices than EUKANUBA, it's very high in carbs which was mentioned before and it has some ingredients I would avoid like corn meal as its second ingredient. Go to Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor and do some research on other brands. People often balk at the price of a higher quality food, but if you factor in less health problems due to higher quality ingredients and perhaps less vet visits, eating less because of better quality ingredients and less poop to clean up because most of the ingredients are being digested not put out as waste in the end it's worth it. Sometimes it can be a challenge to find the right food that works for both your dogs well being and your budget but it can be done.
