dhn_askmax2Dear Max,

Whenever I give my dog a bone she immediately goes out into the yard and buries it. Why does she do that?


Dear Carrie,

It's because she doesn't want to share! Just kidding.

Burying or hiding bones is regular dog behavior, like sniffing and tail wagging. It's an instinct that goes back millions of years long before us dogs were considered pets. To learn more about why dogs bury bones check out this article.
