It sounds like you're seeing signs of an anal gland impaction. This will cause pain in the perineum and scooting. It can also lead to difficulty defecating.

You could take him to a vet or even a groomer to have the anal glands emptied manually. This should resolve the signs.

Here is some info on anal sacs in dogs:

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
