Can anyone tell me why my Bugg bites his fur. He acts like he has fleas but doesn't. Could this just be a habit? I'm going to give him a bath with new shampoo for dry skin. Maybe that is the problem.

The same thing was happening with Buddy, seemed more often right after he had a bath even. We changed his shampoo and he is doing better so I think it has something to do with dry skin. We were giving him a bath every couple weeks at first and now we have stretched out the time between and that seems to have helped also.

He still seems to do it at night, though, when he is on the bed, biting at the base of his tail and licking his feet -- I don't know about this -- maybe is a habit and/or he gets too warm --

We are still learning about Buddy -- he is a very interesting dog!

My Minni Bugg does that too. It could be because they have so much skin and their fur in really fine and thin.
