My Staffie moves his bum around on the couch like he has an itch or something.

We have given him de-worming pills, but he still continues to try and scratch it - albeit very unsuccessfully.

Do you have any advice on what I can do?

EDIT: Thanks, I read through How can I stop my dogs from scooting / dragging their butts? and it was very helpful although I don't think I have the stomach to do it myself.

Thanks all, this site is very helpful!

    @DriesGroblerJr - as noted in the answer on the scooting/dragging question, you can always pay your vet or a groomer to do it. – JoshDM Feb 13 '14 at 14:50
  • Definitely take him to the vet - I took mine once and he barely has the problem anymore. – quesoflorecido Feb 15 '14 at 0:34
