There is a certain area on a dog's body that is referred to as the "saddle region." It vaguely consists of the back, sides and flanks. Rubbing or scratching a dog in the saddle region (the exact spot varies according to the individual pet) will cause the hind leg to simulate a scratching motion. This is called the "scratch reflex."

In other words.

the dog thinks it feels good

No. in other words, the dog likes what you are doing, therefore he shakes his legs to have an itch because your tickling him.

No. In other words it is a reflex reaction that the dog cannot help. Kind of like having your knee hit with that instrument that the doctors test reflexes with.

Dog's legs shake as an involuntary reflex while being scratched. "It's a completely involuntary reaction, which explains why your dog may look as puzzled as you do when it starts to happen."

well he would be limping and wouldn't be able to walk much and they'll just lay around. sometimes (my dog hurts her legs and paw pads because she runs around like an idiot...) her leg starts to shake and she'll growl at me.

If this is your pet please DO NOT risk your dog's health and life waiting for answers which will likely not serve any purpose! PLEASE get your dog to a vet ASAP!

If your pet is a dog, then it is not healthy for your dog, it's actually poisonous for your dog.

Yes, dogs can be trained to shake hands with you.

The LITERAL meaning would be to shake one of your legs back and forth.

There are no codes for a dog pet, however, you can get a Dino pet.
