Why Do Dogs Howl?

Dog Questions

Howling is a form of communication for your dog. Dogs can exhibit this behaviour when they’re stressed or due to territorial issues, or it can just be to get their owner’s attention and announce their presence. Some breeds, like Huskies, simply howl for enjoyment!

Why Do Dogs Have Whiskers?

Whiskers are specifically tuned sensory guides for dogs. They aid a dog’s vision and help them navigate through day-to-day environments.

Why Are Dogs’ Noses Wet?

Dog Questions

Having a wet nose simply increases your dog’s sense of smell. By having this, dogs can absorb more smells throughout the day. Wet noses also help dogs regulate their body temperature as they sweat through their nose, in addition to their feet pads.

Why Do Dogs Bury Bones?

Dog Questions

Dogs bury bones through instinct rather than entertainment. Before being domesticated, dogs often needed to guard food as meals were generally unpredictable. So this natural instinct is why some dogs do this today.
