RIKA,

Have you (or anyone else for that matter) noticed when dog lies down they face north most all the time? Most of the dogs I've had all faced north when they lie down for a nap. I've heard its because they get better circulation that way but I can't figure out why. :cool:

Mine just kind of sprawl out whichever way they happen to be facing at the time.

Although I did notice that most beagles, including mine, will walk in a circle, counterclockwise 3-5 times before laying down.

My dogs want to face the doorway of whatever room they are in. Since they are 2 Dobes and a Dobe wannabe (Lab) I guess maybe they are wanting to guard.

Magnum,

I have noticed that ritual in the past too. (kind of like a last minute perimeter check before lying down).

They must be watchdogs...winding themselves (this was a funnier joke when we had to wind our wristwatches instead of waiting for the battery to die when we need it)

The Dobes just strreetch, head and shoulders down and butt up in the air. Then they plop on their bellys and roll over and go to sleep. Pleasure loving animals to the extreme.

I've read the circling thing is to do a last minute check for enemies and also to beat down a bedding area. Kind of makes sense. Mine circles her bed, but finally lay's down any old way.
