If you’ve ever had a dog, then you know their behavior can be peculiar sometimes. There’s no way of knowing for sure what’s going through their adorable little heads when they take half an hour to pick a place to pee, or when they chase their tails for minutes and minutes in a row.
But after studying the behavior in different breeds of dogs, scientists have come closer to finding the explanation for why canines act the way they do sometimes. Their conclusions are like a first draft of an instructions manual on how to be a dog owner.
For instance, if your dog insists on picking out random stuff from the side of the sidewalk and give them to you, it’s because they want to show their loyalty. They are basically trying to offer you a present as a token of their love and admiration for you.
Another typical dog behavior involves them taking over your whole bed. If your dog does that, it’s because he considers you a member of his pack. Dogs are used to sharing everything with their pack, even their shelter!
But maybe the most peculiar explanation is in regard to why most dogs sit on their guardians’ feet. Well, as it turns out, it’s your dog’s way of officially making you a part of his pack. It’s sort of like a rite of initiation, so make sure to enjoy the moment when it happens and not hurry your fury friend up.
