Ever wonder why your dog loves to stick their head out the window? Well we have an answer!
Although it sometimes gives me a mini heart attack and I have to tether them to the seat I'm guilty of letting my dogs stick their head out the window. What can I say they legit look like they're smiling and my dogs happiness is all that matters.
But why do they do this?
Apparently sticking their head out the car window stimulates their sense of smell.
An expert says dogs receive more smell stimulation with their heads fully outside the car, versus inside. And dog noses are practically designed to savor smells and apparently when they sniff from a moving car they can smell everything form the person on the street, the trash can, every patch of grass, restaurants, and even other dogs!
They compare it to people watching TV.
