How come when you scratch a dog somewhere they kick their leg? Especially if it's at the site of a bug bite? It's obviously a sign of pleasure, but why exactly do they do it? Like, with my dog, she'll sometimes do it when she's chewing on a spot herself. And with humans for example, we have a mechanism in our brain that lets us know we're tickling ourselves so it doesn't tickle. Is this lacking in dogs? I'd appreciate if you'd answer me. Thanks! :)
