Dragging himself across the carpet

We have a three-year-old, well socialized Miniature Schnauzer. He flattens himself on the carpet and drags himself. What does this mean...?

Dragging across carpet....
by: Michele

Well, I'm not really sure .. he maybe just stretching himself ..or he has an itch under his tummy and the only way to get to it is the way you describe... If he had worms he would be sat and be rubbing his " bum " across the carpet... If he is doing this on a regular basis I would be inclined to check him out at your vet, as he may be making his tummy sore especially if you have a carpet that is static...I'm sure he is fine, and just being playful... My Rebel is also 3 years .. 4 on June 23rd, but has never done this .. he does sleep with his back legs stretched out behind him, though...I agree the BEST breed ever and every one has their own character..
