Why does my dog scratch the rugs?

There are many reasons: * Sometimes dogs play and will whip back their back feet in a comical fashion which means they are happy, content and ready to play.

* They may be trying to make a bed, so it's to your advantage (if you don't have one) to get a dog bed. I get mine at Costco (I believe that's an American Company) as they are much cheaper. They have small ones and very large ones. The covers come off and can be washed.
