Why do dogs drag their bodies across the floor?
Scooting - when a dog drags its anus along the ground - is almost always a sign something is irritating your dog.
What's behind that irritation can range from infection to worms to inflammation.
Some of the most common reasons dogs drag their bottom include: Anal Sac Problems.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
