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.

Dog’s Behaviour

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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!”

 

  1. 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.

My Dog Just Stopped Eating

Such a headache aye when your newly arrived puppy stops eating for no reason. Not eating even egg yolks, mince and almost everything. Wondering what you should be doing? Well, in these cases, you should always observe carefully to make sure your puppy is not feeling sick or ill at all. If your dog is not showing any signs of sickness then congratulations, you could now move on to the easier step. 2 ways of resolving the issue of dogs not eating:

  1. Allow a decent dog cage to be placed at a quiet corner, let your dog rest in the cage and stop giving any food for approximately 24 hours. During this starvation, make sure sufficient clean water is offered at all times. Best to keep a drinking bowl in the dog cage.
  2. Enhance exercise load, this is often easier for small dogs by giving more toys and owners attention but in general, a nice adequate amount of walk or run freely is essential for all dogs.

Your dog’s appetite would normally regain right next day or in a very short period of time.
