Why Dogs Circle to Lie Down


Beautiful Hard Cover Children’s Book

Yes, it’s an ever-lasting puzzle for dog owners.  Even the dogs themselves don’t seem to understand why they do it.  There are many theories, of course, including the need for dogs to point their bums to the wind just to keep warm.  But in fact, there is a very good reason why dogs circle to lie down – a reason that dates back many thousands of years.



Why Dogs Circle to Lie Down

A sample read:
Bonaparte was lying asleep in the snow
With the temperature down to ten below.
‘Why do you circle before your lie down?’
The prof asked wearing a big woolly gown.
‘We need to ensure our bum’s to the wind,
To stop ice from coating our nose and chin.’
