Dogs are wonderful companions, but they are not always perfect angels. In fact, their mischievous behavior can be some of the most entertaining and endearing qualities that make us love them even more. There are countless funny ways that dogs misbehave. In this article, we will break down some of the most hilarious and memorable ways our furry friends push the boundaries and make us laugh. How many of these things does your pup do?


Golden Retriever Being Playful


#10 - Singing along to music


Watching dogs sing along to their favorite tunes can be hilarious and heartwarming, but let's be honest - after the tenth rendition of "How Much Is That Doggy In The Window," it can become more irritating than a barking neighbor's dog. But, whether their singing ruins the song being played or not, it never fails to put a smile on our faces. 

#9 - Rolling around in something stinky


Once you see it, it's already far too late. You can scream and shout, but your pup is already covered in poop. Whether it be their instincts or whether they just enjoy it, dogs rolling around in something stinky is a nightmare to clean up. This is one of the things on this list that is only laughed about long after the event.


#8 - Giving the "sad puppy eyes" to get treats


Puppy eyes



Our pups really know how to play with our emotions. They always seem to know how to get us to give them one more treat after we say "last one." If you're a dog owner, you know the look all too well - the sad puppy eyes that your furry friend gives you when they want a treat. It's almost impossible to resist those big, pleading eyes, but don't be fooled - your dog knows exactly what they're doing. It's a classic case of emotional manipulation that dogs have perfected over centuries of co-existing with humans. So, the next time your pooch gives you sad eyes, just remember: you're not giving them a treat; you're falling prey to their clever marketing tactics.

#7 - Humping


Let's face it, dogs can be a little too frisky for their own good, especially when it comes to humping. Whether it's a pillow, a leg, or even another dog, it's hard not to feel a little awkward when your furry friend starts to get a little too intimate with their favorite object of desire. But hey, at least they're not shy about their needs - they know what they want and go for it. And let's be honest, sometimes it's just too funny not to laugh (as long as it's not happening to you). 


#6 - Refusing to come when called

No matter how well-trained our dogs are, they have had their stubborn streak at some point or another. For some reason, they decide not to listen at the most inconvenient times. Like when you took them to the dog park to burn off their energy before going to work, and as you began to run late, your pup decided you would have to catch them if you wanted them to leave that park. 


#5 - Sneaking onto the furniture


This one goes out to the dog parents with a "no dogs on the furniture" policy. No matter how much you enforce it, they will still try their luck when nobody's looking. The funniest part about it is after they sneak onto the couch enough times, owners stop caring and start letting it go altogether. Doggo: 1, Human: 0.

#4 - Begging for attention


Dogs are notorious for their insatiable desire for attention and will do almost anything to get it. Whether it's pawing at your face, nudging your hand, or even just staring at you with those big, hopeful eyes, they are masters of the art of begging. And let's be honest, it's hard not to fall for their adorable tactics - who can resist a furry little face that wants some love and attention?

#3 - Licking everything


Dogs are known for their love of licking, and we're not just talking about their owners' faces. From themselves to other dogs and even to inanimate objects, there's really no limit to what a dog will stick their tongue on. It can be both adorable and gross simultaneously, especially when you catch them mid-lick on something that makes you cringe. But hey, who are we to judge? Maybe dogs just have a unique appreciation for the taste and texture of different surfaces. Or perhaps they just like to drive their owners crazy.


#2 - Stealing the spot on the couch


Ah, the couch - the ultimate throne of relaxation and comfort. Unfortunately, the couch can quickly turn into a battle zone when you have a furry friend in the house. Dogs have an innate ability to sniff out the comfiest spot on the couch and claim it as their own, leaving their owners to either squeeze in next to them or settle for the less-than-ideal spots. It's a classic power play that dogs use to assert their dominance and remind us who's really in charge.


#1 - Snatching socks and hiding them


Dogs are our best friends, but they tend to be a little sneaky regarding their favorite hobby - stealing socks. Whether from the laundry pile, the bedroom floor, or even straight off your feet, dogs seem to have an insatiable desire for the soft, chewy goodness of a good sock. And once they've nabbed one, they'll do everything they can to keep it hidden from their owners - burying it in the backyard, hiding it under the couch, or even stashing it in their dog bed. It's a game of cat and mouse that dogs love to play, and they're surprisingly good at it.
