Do dogs get high when you rub their ears?
Much like reflexology and the human feet, there is a complete map of the canine body on their ears.
Apparently it's not at all uncommon for a dog to slip happily into a state of bliss when his ears are being rubbed.
A rubbing, stroking motion stimulates the pituitary and hypothalamus glands which releases endorphins.
How long do I wait before taking my puppy outside? Vets recommend waiting until 10-14 days after your puppy's last vaccination booster – usually at around 14–16 weeks of age – before introducing them to the wonders of local parks, beaches and walking trails.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
