Even notice that certain intense
gaze look from your dog when you’re waiting for him to poop? You’re watching the pup circle, circle, sniff, sniff, and then squat. Here are some theories explaining what that’s all about. This could be a residual feeling from before dogs were domesticated. Back then they had to defend themselves. They are after all, at their most vulnerable when trying to relieve themselves and could be looking to you to make sure that ‘you’ve got their back.’ Well that and some dogs are looking for a reward from you for performing. Some dogs. Who shall remain nameless. Whose initials are “S.a.m.”
Then again maybe he just wants some privacy and hoping by staring at me, I’ll look the other way. And which is probably why he tries to follow me into the bathroom. Paybacks can be a real b*tch.
Does your dog stare at you when he is pooping? Do you nonchalantly whistle, shuffle your feet, put your hands in your pocket or even look the other way?
Live, love, bark! <3
