MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why do dogs like squeaky toys so much?

If you have a dog you’ve probably by now realized how much they like chewing and playing with squeaky toys. But why does this high pitch noise inside of a stuffed animal or rubber casing bring them so much joy?

The reason is because dogs are decedents of wolves. This act of chasing or chewing on a toy satisfies their prey drive and instinct to hunt and capture tiny animals. There is also an element of instant gratification when they grab the toy.

Good puppy…
