Anal glands are normally expressed (fluid released) whenever they do a solid movement. Sometimes the glands get backed up and need a little human help releasing fluid. If they back up too long they'll itch and the dog will react to that by boot-scooting.

I would go with the anal glands also. The vet will explain why they can be a problem.

I kind of know why but I am usually trying to pretend I am not in the room during this time and I go to my special place in the Bahamas.

Agree with everyone else that anal glands should be checked but if its an older dog it could also be that the muscles back there aren't working as well as they used to and some 'residue" remains in the area after pottying. I had that problem with Bandit when he got older. I don't think he ever got used to Mom slapping a cold baby wipe on his butt when he came back inside but it did take care of the problem of skid marks and butt kisses on the carpet!

Oh my gosh...WRONG thread to read when you're eating breakfast. Where's that puking icon?

As gross as it sounds, it looks and smells even grosser. We actually had to EVACUATE the exam room when my vet expressed Beesley's glands--they were so full! I made the mistake of looking at my vets hand after he'd gotten done with one side. O.M.G.

It is a truly awful awful smell. Right up there for me with skunk. You know it's bad when the vet or their techs look like you punched them in the face when they have to do it. One of my friends used to do her own dog after the vet taught her how. I always thought she was nuts. After a few times, back to the vet!!!!!!

If this happens a lot, you need to take the dog to the vet for an exam. Other posters have mentioned the anal gland issue already, but this can also be a symptom of something more serious, like a tumor or perianal fistula. Have you taken a good look back there to see if something looks strange or inflamed?
