7 funny things dogs do

Have you noticed that there are a various soft spots on your dog that when you scratch them there, they kick their legs as if they’re being tickled? It is known as the scratch reflex – and a bit like people being tickled, we’re not entirely sure whether they enjoy it or not. 

Strange as it may seem for pet dogs who sleep on plush beds and carpets, but it’s an innate survival instinct whereby they’re subconsciously checking the area for danger – who knows what snakes or poisonous thorns may be lurking in your shag pile rug? 

This is one of the weirder of the funny things dogs do. It might seem an odd way of introducing yourself to a stranger, but it’s simply a normal canine greeting and how they find out about the other dog.
