My Dog Kicks The Dirt with His HInd Legs

This is so funny! My dog is a chihuahua. I take him out to potty on the leash and he goes through this ritual. First he has to find the 'right' spot to pee, and then he has to hunt around for the 'right' place to do his other business. Each time he pees or poos he goes nuts kicking up his back feet to kick the dirt around. Is he leaving his scent from his feet onto the ground so he can find his place to go again, or is he leaving his scent to tell other animals that this is his turf, or his potty. Does your dog do this?
