dogs head tilt
The real reason dogs tilt their heads and other canine facts

The bonds we have with our canine companions are unlike any other friendships or relationships we have. Some of us love our dogs like children, and it's no wonder. There's an unconditional friendship there that makes everything better, and knowing what's going on inside those precious, perfect little heads can only make us understand them better.

dogs hungry
Why do dogs always act hungry?

Even if you just fed them five minutes ago, your dog will probably give you those eyes when you're trying to eat your lunch. If their behavior is to be believed, they're one stagger away from collapsing from sheer starvation: "now can I have the rest of that sandwich, you heartless person? Those steaks? There's one for me, right? Don't mind me as I help myself to this pie you've left on the counter, too."

So what's the deal, Pup? It's normal, and it's thought that this behavior is a holdover from when we first started inviting wild dogs to share our campfires and our table scraps. For them, food was a commodity, and you never knew when your next meal was coming. It was better to chow down on food when it was there, and it's likely that the focus on food is biologically hardwired into our dogs today.

For some dogs, there's always the possibility that they've experienced a life where they really were starving, and even after being rescued and re-homed, they're remembering what it was like to have empty bellies. Vets will often differentiate between begging dogs that act hungry, and dogs whose behavior suddenly changes to become more demanding of food, so it's also important to keep an eye on puppy, in case he goes from begging to ravenous.

Why do some dogs eat poop?

Horse poop, sheep poop, unidentified poop … sometimes, their own poop. It's not like you don't feed them, and it can't possibly taste good … can it?
