    Skippy does it all the time too, I think it's one of his doggy stretching maneuvers.

    It's normal behaviour, don't worry.

    Dogs do this kind of shake for many reasons -- to calm themselves, to relieve stress, to defuse pressure, or simply to do the equivalent of a good stretch.

    You might notice your dog also does this if startled, when meeting another dog, if another dog growls or barks at them, when suddenly surprised by something, etc.

    Some have described shake-offs as a kind of 'reset button too, when a dog is stopping one thing (eg a nap) and starting some other activity.
