Behaviour of dogs


Wild dogs wolves and foxes (the canidae)

Are probably the most successful of the carnivores because they can and do adapt to many different environmental conditions   including mans destruction of their own habitat. take for example of the coyote during the past 50years  the face of north America  has altered radically through industrialization and yet the coyote which has been continually persecuted by man has actually increase its range and can now be fond in several parts  of the united states where it has not been observe before. And the English red fox  an animal which should feed mainly on rabbits and  small rodents  now ravages dustbins and eat large quantities of fruits since  the 1956 out break of myxomatosis  produce a sharp decrease in the number of rabbits. This ability to change with the external conditions is a special future of the Canidae and explains their wide distribution in every continent except Antarctica and in habitats as diverse as the north Africans desert, the arctic tundra. And south American tropical forest.

Although the species are variable in their size and the colour of their fur. All of dogs and foxes behave in much the same way. For example, to bury excess food or bones The dig a small hole using their fore and covering it by pushing sand or soil over it sweeping movements of the muzzle. This behaviour is so ingrained that wolves raise on concrete floors will perform all the burying movements including digging and muzzle sweeping even when there is no soil available. Scent   marking in another pattern which is seen in all the wild canids should also be familiar with any one who has watch domestic dogs on their daily rounds carefully sniffing every tree, stone and lamp post then lifting a leg and urinating over each object. Dogs gain much in number sexes of other dogs in the neighbour hood and the presence of any female on heat. In fact, the odour of each individual’s urine probably has special characteristics which makes it easily identifiable to another dog in much the same way that humans can identify each other by their finger prints and voices.

    Dogs and wolves have learned to survive through the centuries, And will probably be with us forever, We hope so.

    i added you as a friend today. Thanks for your comments on my post. I think it’s important that we trionders (as writers and critiquers) comment on one another’s work.

    This article is super. i think we may have the topic of ‘animals’ in common. I write about cats sometimes!

    Lovely to meet you on Triond.

    You are so right dogs can identify each other. My dog I had in elementary school we did not think to get her spayed and she came home twice with puppies. The lady whose dog impregnanted her said she could not keep her dog in the house. Then we spayed my dog and even when the dog could barely walk, when he was outside he would walk and stand in front of our house looking for my dog. It did not hurt she was beautiful and sweet tempered
