Your dog's anal glands are two grape-shaped glands located just below the anus to either side. The pheromones they secrete give canines vital information about one another, including health, age, and sex. This explains why dogs sniff each other's rears when they meet . Sometimes the fluid in anal glands can build up, causing your dog to lick or bite his anus and "scoot" his bottom around on the floor after or before defecation. This can happen to any breed, though small dogs are particularly prone to anal sac disorders. Michelle will gently position your dog and then manipulate the gland, this does not harm the dog, just uncomfortable for a moment.
