Have you ever wondered why they do these things? There are specific reasons why our dogs do strange things like sniff butts or scoot their butts across the carpet. Here is a list of why they do what they do!
1) Eating Grass
Dogs like to eat grass even though it makes them throw up. You think it is unhealthy, but dogs do this to improve digestion, treat intestinal worms, or fulfill a nutritional need like a lack of fiber.
2) Tilting Their Head
The experts say that dog’s tilt their head to adjust their outer ears so they can focus on the location of the sound, because sometimes they can’t hear you.
3) Butt Sniffing
When a dog is sniffing another dog’s butt, it is a dog’s way of saying “Hey, how you doing? Nice to meet you.” Humans shake hands… dogs sniff butts. A dog’s sense of smell is 10,000 times stronger than a human’s and scent can tell a lot about a person.
4) Eating Poop
Despite this sounding disgusting, it’s actually a normal cleaning behavior in mother dogs. Dogs without babies will eat poop in order to clean up their kennel.
5) Stares At You
Your dog just wants a treat or some love from you.
6) Butt Scoot
This is a sign that your dog has a dirty butt and is trying to clean it., or it can also mean that your dog has an anal gland problem or worms.
7) Chasing Their Tails
This behavior can be caused by many different things, such as your dog is in a tight space where the movement is restricted, they are bored, have fleas, or irritated anal glands.
8) Post-Bath Hyperactivity
Dogs get hyper after a bath because they are so glad to be out of that bath. They may shake, rub, and run around just to get dry and rid of the sensation of being wet.
9) Head Out of the Window in the Car
Some dogs like to stick their head out the window. This is so they are closer to their surroundings and can be fully immersed in the new environment they are experiencing.
10) Humps Things
This is not sexual at all, dogs hump things as a sign of dominance, because they are excited or seeking attention.
