Why Do Dogs Bury Bones?

 

Wolves bury food that they can’t eat immediately. This keeps it safe from scavengers like crows and the cold ground helps to preserve it. Birds don’t have a good sense of smell so they find it harder to locate these buried caches than wolves do. Dogs retain this behaviour and will bury toys or bones – either because they are saving their leftovers, or just because they are bored.
