Dog and Child Back-Scratching Video

I'll Scratch Your Back If You Scratch Mine

It seems as if our pets are always on the receiving end of any pampering treatments. But this kid has the right idea. It's time to take a stand against one-sided back-scratching and teach our pets how to reciprocate!

Wondering why Fido's leg shakes when you scratch certain spots? It's an involuntary reflex that occurs when you activate nerves that identify your scratching as an irritant. Your pooch automatically attempts to alleviate the "itch" even though you're the one doing both the itching and the scratching!
