Do You Know Why They Do This? – 6 Pictures

3. Digging through the garbage, rolling in the dirt

How many times have you returned home to find an overturned trash bin, trash all over the place and your pet playfully wagging their tail and gnawing something s/he found in the trash? The answer to the question of why dogs love digging through garbage may lie in our common history. According to most experts, the dogs were domesticated by humans thousands of years ago, and as we've mentioned their distant ancestors were wolves. In winter the wolves were approaching populated areas and villages just looking for food. Dumped garbage, food scraps and bones were a real treat in the days when hunting “big time” wasn't very successful. It can be said that going through trash is etched into the genetic code of dogs. Excess food you throw is trash for you, but for dogs that is a fragrant, aromatic treat that must be tried. Some dogs see digging through garbage as a game – plastic bottles and paper rolls are great chewing toys from dogs' point of view. Kind of a different type of behavior that dog owners don't like either is rolling in the dirt, mud and feces. Well, try to understand that it doesn't stink for them and that they do it as a way of camouflaging their scents and hiding from enemies.
