There can be many reasons for itchy skin in a dog, most commonly allergies, whether flea allergy, environmental allergy or food allergy … Is the skin also red, perhaps feels flaky, or wet and oozing? In my experience, quite often itchiness together with hair loss points to bacterial infection. Either way, I recommend you have your dog looked at by a vet and the cause properly identified and treated.

Hi!
Also to add to the great answer already,,,could also be ringworm or mange..both can be checked by your vet
Hopefully your pet will feel better soon!
