Friday Fun Facts …. “🤨 Dogs Turn in Circles Ritual 🤨…. ‘“!!

~~May 17, 2019~~


Now that I’m taking care of our guest, Lucy,

I can confirm this is totally true.

Despite the fact that most of our household pets have been domesticated for many generations and seemingly have lost touch with their wild ancestors, this is one of the few traits that has remained.

This type of behavior, according to dog behavior specialists is a hardwired trait that was drilled into the dog’s ancestors as a way to build a safe nest each night to sleep in. Still even today, wild dogs all across the world use the act of turning in circles to pat down tall grass and underbrush to create a comfortable bed for them and their pups each night.
You may have also noticed it before they poop.

Doggy beds and pillows haven’t always been around, so wild dogs had to pat down tall grass and underbrush to make a comfortable bed for themselves and their pups.
The easiest way to prepare that night’s sleeping area was by walking around in a circle. The rounding ritual may also have served as a safety precaution.
