A German shepherd owner has been left perplexed and in hysterics by his pooch’s “weird” habit – and it turns out he’s not the only one.
Reddit user tim_durgan shared a video to the social media site of his dog attempting to eat her dinner.
But instead of chomping down on the food in the bowl, she repeatedly tried lifting up the mat and covering it.
Seemingly annoyed that the tactic wasn’t working, she then starts groaning before turning around to face her owner.
The video has been uprooted more than 700 times and fellow German shepherd owners admitted they too had experienced it.
“My dog does this s*** all the time,” one said.
“The worst part is he will do it with bones and use blankets, towels, laundry, to do it with but will stand on the item and try to move it with his nose. So when I get up and cover it up for him he just gives me a look of absolute betrayal.”
Another commented: “My husky/shepherd mix does this with pee in the snow. Her pee, your pee, anybody’s pee must be buried.”
And someone else explained the habit was actually something called “caching”.
“It means they want it but not right now,” they continued.
“Either because not hungry or don’t feel safe to eat(location).”
It comes after another German shepherd went viral for their adorable habit of “embracing their inner meerkat”.
Meanwhile, another pooch showed off his “singing voice” before waiting for his owner’s reaction.
And another German shepherd’s wholesome reaction to a cat licking his face melted the hearts of viewers on Reddit.
The dog's owner explained in the comments: "He is VERY patient with the new kitten!"
