Still Changing

Why do you think my dog circles around and around on my (HIS)day bed before laying down?

Literally Speaking ™:

Same reason humans plump the pillow before laying down, to fluff it up for comfort.

Still Changing:

Thats funny.

.......:

The circling behavior is a direct connection to their wolf ancestry. Readying their and surveying the terrain for safety.

Find a video called "A Wolf in Your Living Room." Very entertaining.

Still Changing:

I do have a cat.My dog hunts bears.#1..

Steve:

it is an instinctive behavior associated with making the grass lay down to make it's bed

Still Changing:

He is a hunter.

M60a3:

I agree with Glennie as part of the answer. The other part is so they don't lay down on snakes, centipedes and other small critters that can hurt or kill them.

Still Changing:

Ouch..

Glenda:

most dogs have their own territory, maybe he was just checking his out to make sure it was still his & that some other dog had not violated his territory, sounds weird, but i have seen alot of dogs do this, even if there hasn't been another dog around.

.......:

I find that the dogs that own this house tend to do it more if their beds have been washed or a cat was seen sleeping on their beds. Oh the horrors!

Aneesh:

In the wild, dogs, wolves, foxes, circle to break a bed in tall grasses.

Texas Girl:

he is "nesting", getting his spot just right before retiring
