Doggos are extremely curious creatures. It’s quite endearing really because they have this sense of wonder towards the universe that ends up in them poking their nose where it doesn’t belong and ending up in fixes time and time again. They’re easily distracted and any sound, sight, or movement will break their focus and will get them chasing the next thing, and being absolutely adorable while doing it.
Even though dogs have their fight or flight response intact, they will usually first have their curiosity piqued when something new happens. When they see something flutter nearby like a butterfly or a bird, it’ll definitely excite them and have them running around until the next distraction comes along! Keeping your doggo entertained at all times is a full-time job and a lot of fun at the same time!
Watching these dogs get super excited by everything around them is extremely endearing and they’re sure to get their nose stuck in places where it doesn’t belong, but they just can’t help it. Everything is their business so there’s no point trying to stop them, just let them be! Below we’ve compiled pictures of adorable doggos that just let their curiosity get the better of them, so start scrolling to bring an uncontrollable smile to your face!

Doggos are extremely perceptive creatures and they can pick up on sounds and movements that we humans cannot. Since their world exists of so many more sounds than ours, they’re always curious to explore the source! Dr. Mary Burch, an animal behaviorist, and according to the director of the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen program, when dogs tilt their head, they are actually displaying their intrigue or notice of a sound and they’re trying to focus harder on it.
“Clearly, the canine sense of hearing is so acute that a dog can hear perfectly well when we are speaking to her without putting one ear closer to the speaker,” Burch states. “However, [the tilted head] could enhance listening for certain phrases such as, ‘Go for a ride?'” Dogs pick up on words or phrases that are of interest to them like those that result in a walk or playtime, Dr. John Ciribassi adds, who is a veterinary behaviorist with Chicagoland Veterinary Behavior Consultants.
Dogs may try to focus more on these words or phrases by tilting their head to try and pay more attention and figure out what’s happening. The curiosity exhibited by some doggos is so endearing at times as they sniff, lick or grab objects that they are curious about, and to see if they can be eaten! Owners should keep an eye on their doggos to make sure they don’t get themselves into too much trouble.
