Why do dogs bury or hide their bones?

Tuesday, March 19, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

Most rituals that we humans find strange, comes very natural to dogs. You may give your dog a bone and later find it hidden under a couch cushion, under a blanket or even buried in the yard. Why do they do this? We provide our canine friends food shelter and protection but in the wild, dogs had to fend for themselves. They had to hunt for food and their survival instincts taught them that they had to hide the prey that they hunted so that they could enjoy another meal before their next hunt.  Dogs have been domesticated for thousands of years and they receive regular meals from their owners but there is still a strong compulsion to hide or bury their food.
