You might think that there is very little cause to justify your petБs lengthy bathroom routine. But for a dog, there is a lot more going on than just their bowel evacuation. If you take your dog for a walk for potty times, there is also a lot of sniffing going on. Dogs communicate through scent in a lot of ways. Number two is just one way. Dogs have scent glands on either side of their anus. These scent glands are a kind of vestigial feature that no longer serves the purpose they once did. They do function, however, as a form of identification tag for your dog. These scent glands emit a musky odor when your dog goes potty, which identifies their poo for other dogs passing by. It may also alert another dog of danger since those anal glands can be expressed when a dog is scared. Walking while pooping may be one way that your dog is able to leave their scent.


The action of walking puts pressure on those scent glands, thereby leaving more of their musky personal signature for others to investigate. Scent glands are also part of the reason some dogs Бwipe their feetБ after going outdoors. There are some scent glands on the pads of a dogБs paw. That distinctive kicking is doing more than just trying to cover their poop, it is also marking their scent around the area. Another reason dogs might walk while pooping is just being able to go easier. If passing is a problem, they may walk a little to try and alleviate that difficulty. If you notice your dog struggling or straining often, it might be time to consult a vet, just to make sure your dog is otherwise healthy. Lastly, some dogs just walk and go. It doesnБt matter if itБs pee or poo, some dogs just canБt stand still long enough to go in one place. It might be awkward to chase your dog around with a bag, but some just go in whatever way they are most comfortable with. б
