Our dog can have a behavior that, sometimes, we cannot understand. Such is the case of entering the home and receiving the pets that bring us an object. Scientists analyzed this situation, in which the dogs brought their owners a toy, a bone, a slipper, or a pair of socks, trying to understand the specific reason.
The first thing we have to think about when our dog welcomes us with an object in his mouth is that he wants to ask us for something, he demands our attention with some element. The behavior is probably due to wanting to play since pets love to play with their owners. So he asks us to take it from him and start the game as a chase.
In addition, it looks at us with its mouth open and its tongue sticking out, it can bark and jump around us, maintaining its posture. It is a very common position when the dog demands the game from other dogs. The truth is that whatever the way of approaching and the object that brings us, pets will want to play and have fun, releasing those retained energies.
Different studies have determined that these pets learn to play in their first months of life. They do it together with their mother and siblings, so they mustn’t be separated before they are eight weeks old. Playing with each other they learn the rules, the limits, and also not to hurt each other.
