Corgi Butt

Lately, my 8 month old corgi pup has been very interested in his bee-hind. He keeps licking his tail nub, mostly, but sometimes he chews too. I know he doesn't have worms - I've even checked his poo to be super sure. He doesn't have fleas or ticks (I have a LOT of animals, I'm anal about making sure they're well taken care of). I didn't see any sort of mosquito bite or anything when I looked at him very closely. And the last time he had a bath was about a month ago, so I imagine if I somehow hadn't rinsed him enough, this would have been happening before now (it's a recent thing - about a week ago, the last couple of days being the worst of it). Also, I don't think it's food allergies because he's been on a consistant diet for almost his whole life since I've had him, and food allergies usually involve other symptoms that I'm familiar with.

I don't know if it's possibly one of those things like when you just can't get comfy or you're itchy without real reason, but I wanted to get some ideas about it. So I thought I'd ask around lj since Googling 'itchy dog ass,' would probably lead to some horrible porn or all the other options I've covered above. I have to talk to the vet about getting him neutered soon anyways, so I will also ask about this then (probably talking to him today or tomorrow about that issue), but again, wanted to see what you other fabulous animule lovers had to throw in. Thanks everyone!
