Paws Corner: Why does a dog chase its tail? Paws Corner: Why does a dog chase its tail? Q: Our dog Jimbo recently took to chasing his tail. He does it in the living room, and he does it when I take him outside. Often he'll snap at the base of his tail. It stops for a few hours, and then he's back at it. I've looked, and I can't see any fleas or anything. What causes this?
