I live in the wet area out in the country now where I grew up, we had the same problem with our hunting dogs as well as our sheppards here for years.

My dad, a trainer called it "jiggers" and usually washed the dogs with some sort of old style soap that caused these little things to go away. They are a very small microscopic type paracite that gets on the skin and causes itching in humans and animals fur buring.

These critters are usually around wet areas like natural springs and slow moving creeks and such. If you have had alot of rain like we are having they will be found in your grass and in the weeds easily.

This is the only thing I can think of that might be your problem.
