Fun Facts about Dog’s Behaviour
Think about the wonderful days and times you spent with your dog, of course they flick their charm every now and then, and they give you hard times. There are a lot of studies and I believe we have all heard about it, so I found some fun facts about dog’s behaviour to share with you.
- Are they mad at me when they growl when they eat?
Canine dogs generally don’t like anyone to get into their territory when they are eating. This is considered to be part of natural instinct, back in the history, they are to guard their food in order to survive so it is not hard to understand some dogs even tend to bite you or acting aggressive when you get close at their meal time. Luckily, this behaviour can be corrected with some love and training.
- Are dogs really colour blinds?
Our world is fully coloured, allowing us to witness the amazing moments such as rainbows and sunset skies. But do the dogs really sees the beauty in their new clothes or to the nature flowers when they play in the park? The fact is yes, they do see colours, just not the way we thought. Dog’s eyes cannot recognise red and green while they can see blue and yellow – making these colours their ‘prime colours’, furthermore, they could distinguish the darkness of the colour, meaning light blue and navy blue do look different in their eyes. They also do better when it comes to grey colours that humans tend to have weak ability to distinguish grey, making our dogs generally have better sights at night than us.
- Why do they always rolling against something that smells?
We’ve all had our moments yelling ‘oh nooo!!!’ to our dogs when they happily rolling themselves against a dead bird or other dogs waste. Well, the scientist think this may be one of the behaviours they got inherited from their ancestors, where originally this serves message passing purpose to communicate between members: “look, I have found a dead bird, smell me, smell me!”
- Dogs twitches their legs during sleep, are they dreaming?
I bet everyone have been asking this question when discovering your puppy make vocal noises and legs twitching during sleep, and you wonder about if they are dreaming. Well, in fact, they do! Just like us! They even have REM period just as what we have when we are having a dream. For some reason, small dogs tend to dream more regularly than big dogs though, so don’t worry about their odd behaviours when they sleep, little twitching might be a sweet dream running in the back yard.
