Answer:

        If you do not see any rash or sores the most common reason for itching in young puppies is dryness.  Bathing often contributes to the problem.  It is best to use a mild shampoo like aloe and oatmeal followed by a leave on conditioner.  Using a fatty acid (Omega 3) supplement is the best long term approach but it takes several weeks of giving it before you can judge the benefits.
