The History of Wild Dog Packs
Much like all animals, dogs have deeply ingrained instincts that have remained even long after dogs became domesticated.
Dogs Also Lie on Other Dogs
In the wild, it’s normal for wolves and wild dogs who live in packs to assert dominance over one another.
They Like Leaving Their Scent
It makes sense why your dog likes to perch on top of you – they are likely marking you as an important part of their surroundings.
It Could be a Bad Habit
If your pup has made you their pillow, then it’s helpful to establish when the habit began. If they’ve been doing it since they were a puppy then the behavior will be a little more solidified.
They’re Trying to Tell you that Something is Wrong
If this behavior has happened out of the blue and you feel sure that it’s not simply a bad habit, then you may be worried that your fur baby is trying to tell you that something is wrong.
