everytime i take my basset outside of her territory a pooing ritual begins:

ex: i take her out to a field and she has to stop poo and then scoot....then more pooing and scooting...and sometimes no pooing put a mucus and scooting...she appears to be ok running and playing.

i was wondering if this is some kind of marking ritual???????

I think it may be her anal glands are bothering her. Scooting usually indicates this. A trip to the vet or groomer may be in order, in order to have them expressed. Some people do it themselves, but I never have.

If left unchecked it can be very painful, and can lead to serious complications. Others on here will be more helpful, but that's usually what it means.
