The 5 Malamute puppies in this video are moving their heads to the music. I was curious why they tilt their head like this, wondering if it’s just enjoyment music or something else, so I did some research about Malamutes, and found a fascinating article about their body language.
None of that content shed any light on the head tilting. However, it did say that Malamutes have the closest communication to wolves than other breeds. The body language is very complex. If you want to read more about this, click HERE to read that interesting article.
And I read on Little Things that the muscles in dogs’ inner ears are controlled by the same part of the brain that is responsible for facial expressions and head movement. It’s just interesting tidbits.
Enjoy watching these puppies move to their music.
