A. most probably a bad allergy case. Did this start suddenly? if so did you change his food in the past couple months? food allergy is very common in dogs no matter the age or breed. It could also be something in the environment, did you move lately? are you walking him in different places than before? do you use a new cleaner or air freshener at home? those are all questions you would have to ask yourself, that way you might find the reason for the condition. Nevertheless I would recommend taking him to the vet so he can get some medication to reduce the itchiness.
