My dog went through something similar- only his front paws, not his back, same sort of thing. Turns out it was an allergy (he's allergic to grass fungus, among other things... any sort of fertilizer, lawn care product, road salt, etc makes his feet get like that). He did the same thing- first time around he nearly chewed his pads off, but the recurring bouts of it he rarely touched them. I would recommend bringing him to a dermatologist- we struggled for so long with our guy's skin issues, and a dermatologist was MUCH more efficient (and cost-effective, in the long run) at ID'ing rashes and dealing with them. I hope you guys get to the bottom of it and that he feels better
