Your dog is going to create what is called an 'hotspot', a spot of constant chewing. You first need to make sure mange (sp) is not an issue. 'Hotspots' can be treated w/ bathing and spray.

It could be a potshot or a flea or tick infestation, especially if the dog lays on the ground outside. Take a dog comb and run it through it's fur a foot or so away from affected area to see if you flush up any fleas.

He doesn't have fleas or ticks, he's an indoor dog. I take him baths on a regular basis. He like to lay in the sun on the balcony. Thanks though~
