Ok, forget Lassie or Old Yeller... those of you in Chit Chat land... I need help from you on a dog owner's observation.

Do dogs as they walk look up very much or do they pretty much keep it straight ahead or to the sides for viewing. I'm wondering how often dogs look up... strange question yes but just something I was wondering when thinking about things from a dog perspective when out for a walk.

Could you help me with this question please.

I have a neighbor whose dog frequently looks up and barks at hawks flying overhead, if she happens to see them. They're pretty high too.


She's also looking up at me all the time.

It depends on the dog and the circumstances the dog is in at the time. Human perception can color this observation too. Dogs are mainly scent oriented. They'll move their heads to gather scent. Many humans, mainly sight oriented, incorrectly interpret this as looking around rather than casting for scent.
