Chances are your dog has some kind of allergy, usually a contact allergy. It can be a grass allergy, it could also be a food allergy.
You should take your dog to the vet to have an allergy test run, and you should also take a look at what you are feeding your dog. If the food is high in corn or wheat, that might be the culprit. You should switch your dog over to a better dog food.
Discuss with your vet what you can do to alleviate your dog's itching.
