Fun fact: Why do dogs like squeaky toys?
What is it about a squeaky toy that is so enticing to your dog? According to a 2018 article published Wag!, the roots of the behaviour may stem from your dog’s bloodline.
When your dog hears the squeak of a small, furry toy — which typically resembles the likes of a small animal — their instinctive prey drive is immediately alerted, notes the article’s author, Christina Wither.
“The hunters and retrievers of the dog world could just imagine a squeaky toy as one of the little creatures they were bred to hunt,” writes Wither. “It tells your dog there is a small squeaky animal that could be just the thing to chase. The whining or crying thereafter could arise from the need to tell you this little animal is on the menu today.”
