Dogs are curious creatures who love to follow their owners everywhere, but there is at least one aspect of dog behavior that is as perplexing as it gets.
It occurs when a dog follows his or her human throughout the house, not stopping even when the person enters the bathroom for a little bit of private time.
To the human, it’s an invasion of privacy.
But to the dog, it’s showing the persona completely different side of him.
Most people are no aware of this, but I just found it out today and it makes a lot of sense when you really think of it.
Dog Behaviors in the Wild
When dogs are out in the wild, they tend to follow each other everywhere.
You rarely see a dog, wolf or even a coyote on its own without other members of its pack nearby.
Typically, one or two canines will go off on their own as scouts, but for the most part you can find these animals huddled together.
When it comes to domesticated dogs, this instinct is not much different.
Dogs Can’t Tell Us With Words, So They Tell Us With Actions
A dog’s biggest purpose in life is to become closer to its owner.
To be there for them by keeping watch, helping them and protecting them at all costs.
Sometimes, we don’t realize this at all, but dogs are actually trying to tell us something when they follow us into the bathroom.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our lovable canine companions, as the video below shows.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably been frustrated by a lot of their behaviors before — although they are also incredibly charming, even when they’re getting into trouble.
After watching this, I will never look at my dog the same way again, that much is for sure!
