Having a pet is so much fun and entertaining. The way they love you unconditionally, comforts you when you are down, play with you and take care of you, is so adorable. But have you ever wondered what your dog home alone do, when you are out to meet a friend or at a party? Well, there are some crazy things that dogs do. Let us find out.
1. Destroying your house:
Depending on the personality of your dog,the degree of destruction varies.Some are really aggressive while others are quite peaceful.Dogs mostly don’t love being alone.So they get grumpy and start destroying things.The soul reason could be they miss you.So they start to show their oppression by destroying things like cushions, shoes, clothes, tear up paper etc
2. Chasing Its Tail
Tail-chasing is often playful, especially if your dog is young. Many dogs chase their tails because they’re getting to know their bodies, see it as a chew toy, or because it’s a nervous habit. However, if your dog does it for long periods of time or frequently it can cause an injury or mean something more serious. Take your dog to the vet to get checked out if they’re chasing their tail frequently to rule out a medical issue.
3. Spinning in Circles
This behavior may seem funny and can sometimes be harmless, but can also be a sign of medical issues, anxiety, or other problems. It’s normal for dogs to circle in their beds or around blankets before sleeping to ensure they’re comfortable (nesting), or spin in circles before going to the bathroom. Visit the vet if your dog spins frequently, particularly if it’s elderly—spinning could mean a memory, hearing, vision, or neurological issue—or if your dog spins in stressful situations, it signals anxiety.
4.They watch your favourite shows:
Just as some dogs enjoy music, some benefit from a little daytime TV. As with music, make sure that the television is a familiar presence that your dog is accustomed to—if you only turn it on before grabbing your keys, it could trigger a negative reaction. As for which channel to turn to, Animal Planet may seem to be a no brainer, but remember—those programs were designed with humans in mind, and safari noises could stir up some wild instincts.
5. eat their poop:
The question has long puzzled dog owners everywhere—why do dogs eat poop? Because it seems so gross to us, we can’t possibly understand why our dog friends would want to do it. It could be a learned behavior, but also a sign that they’re lacking nutrients.Traditional kibble often doesn’t contain easily digestible ingredients and dogs may not be able to fully absorb the nutrients in their food. So, if they’re eating their poop, it can be an attempt to regain those nutrients.
6. finds friends:
As man’s best friend, your dog needs to spend quality time with his favorite human. But a furry friend can also enrich his day while you’re gone.“If you have a social dog, you should absolutely introduce another social dog,” says Fox. “Find a good match, and it can be very beneficial.”If you’re adopting, shelter staff should be able to recommend dogs who are compatible with your own pup and your work schedule.
7. getting depressed because of loneliness:
Always remember that your pet loves you more than you love it. You may go places for work, business and leisure, bark orders at it and train it hard to obey rules, but your pet will never say a word to you. When you leave your pet alone at home for hours, it misses you. Initially there may be those violent rounds of protests but as the gloom of loneliness becomes more apparent and evident, it surrenders and accepts your absence with a heavy heart. Loneliness in a dog’s life can take a negative flavor with issues like relentless barking, howling, anxiety, defecating indoors, and chewing on things within its reach.
8. Kitchen mess:
The initial streak of rebellion is gone, your pet realizes that it is in real bad need of something to eat. The poor chap feels hungry and begins an expedition in search of the best food in town to stuff its stomach and what better place to search for food than your kitchen? The revolution begins and your pet explores the remotest corners of the kitchen, taking down all the vegetables and fruits from the refrigerator if kept unlocked. It smells the spices, whole grains and cereals and does not like the taste. It is advisable to arrange for some chew-able items, dog biscuits etc and keep it within its reach before leaving home.
9. Snoozing somewhere cozy:
The revolutionary fire has now been doused. Your dog exhausted, petrified and disturbed by the alarming levels of pin drop silence, realizes that it has tried enough to contact you. Snuggling in your clean linen and slipping into dreamland is the next thing on the agenda. It could be your smell that attracts the dog to your bed and put him at peace.
With you go and no one to fear, there is no stopping your pet now. Forget your bed. It was your bed once, but now it belongs to your baby pet now! Don’t be surprised to see holes pinned into your bed cover and the cotton ripped out of those pillows. Your dog needs some quality entertainment. Buy some good dog toys that can keep it engaged for the while that you are not at home.
