The History of Wild Dog Packs
When it comes to the history of dogs, there are still many pack-related behaviors that have remained over time and that your pups may still exhibit from time to time.
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.
Dogs Assert Their Dominance By Lying On Other Dogs
When there is more than one dog in your household, it’s normal for one to try to assert their dominance by lying on the weaker dog.
They Like Leaving Their Scent
In this way, 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
So if you’re tired of sleepless nights and of waking up with stiff joints, you may be feeling desperate to get your pooch off your back or your chest.
