Dog imitation - Imitating chasing tail from another dog
I was here browsing the forum and remembered to ask something about a dog behavior that we have probably all seen before.
We have all seen (even if only on YouTube) dogs running trying to chase their own tail, I would like to know why dogs do that.
But more importantly why would one dog that never exhibited this behavior, begins performing the exact same behavior after seeing another dog doing it?
Note that both dogs aren't in the same family/pack and never even met before, they only came across each other during a walk in the park, and when one started chasing his tail the other imitated him.
Both dogs, far as I was able to notice, all seemed in good shape, healthy and clean.
Honestly I always scratched my head around this one, none ever gave me a good answer. Well maybe someone here can.
Hope it helps, John.
