On the flip side, I have a dog who doesn't enjoy petting very much. He accepts it, but he isn't happy about it until he gets a butt scratch.

Both of my dogs completely melt if I do what Smkie mentioned and rub right behind their ears, and both of them looove getting their butt (not literally their butt, but that's what we call the area around their hips) scratched. We recently introduced Ripley to the bamboo back scratcher and if we hold it over him, he'll start doing this weird little writhing movement to self-scratch. It's hilarious.
LOL...the 'butt' scratching is Addie's favorite thing! she doesn't particularly like being petted otherwise, but will sometimes come and push her head under your hand. Ham...he adores being touched no matter what. even brushing delights him cause I brush, then rub over with my hand. if I rub his ears lightly between my thumb and finger...he is putty. lol I guess it depends on the dog.
