Gary M Posted December 22, 2003 Report Share Posted December 22, 2003 Looking for some help or ideas. My BC has a habit of doing what we call her "happy dance" which is rubbing both sides of her face into the carpet then rolling back and forth on her back, talking all the time she is doing this, half the time with a toy in her mouth or rolling on a toy. She does this 4 or 5 times a day that we are aware of. This is causing the hair under both of her eyes to be worn away, sometimes to the point of bleeding. We have taken her to the vet and he has done skin scrapings and there are no infections or parasites that would be causing an irritation. She is also the only one of the 5 dogs that we have that does this and all are inside pets. I know if she keeps this up I will have to change her name to "Scarface". We have tried antibiotics, etc, but being so close to her eyes I am afraid she will get this in her eyes and cause more irritation and rubbing or worse. Scolding her has not helped either, plus I feel bad for telling her to stop when she is just starting to trust and feel comfortable around us. (She is a purebreed(?) road rescue that took us 4 months to finally trap and is very happy in her new (just over a year) home.) Any help would be very much appreciated Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
