Why Does Your Dog Tilt His or Her Head?

Ask dog owners what their favorite thing is that their favorite pooch does, and you’re bound to hear a lot of them talking about the beloved dog head tilt. This habit may be cute, but what does it really mean? Veterinarians aren’t sure, but there are a few theories that could explain the behavior.

Watch this video for insight into three possible reasons why your dog may tilt his or her head. Some animal experts believe dogs may tilt their heads to see or hear better, but others believe that dogs may do so because they get a positive response when they do it. It could be that both explanations are valid in different cases.
