Our expert says:
I would advise that you examine the skin of the dogs throughly. Alsways try and think of the simple thing's first. Look to see if there are fleas (and flea dirt), ticks, lice e.t.c. Check to see if there are scabs or sores on the skin. By doing this you can get a quick idea if there is an obvious problem for the scratching.
I do not know enough about this case but I suspect that this could be a flea allergy dermatitis as it is affecting both the dogs. I would advise that you wash the dogs on a regular basis with medicated shampoo/apply regular flea treatment (can be expensive)/and treat the dogs environment. If you can't get to the bottom of the problem ask your local vet for advise
