Pointing

“Pointing” is when a dog becomes completely still and points its snout toward something specific. This behavior is sometimes accompanied by a lifting of one of the front paws off the ground. Dogs that are bred for hunting point frequently, but almost every breed does it at times.

As veterinarian Dr. Ellen Vindell told Vet Street, “dogs are just dogs, and there are certain behaviors that probably any dog that’s a dog can do…. You’ll see a sporting dog who circles like a herding dog, and you’ll get some herding dogs who point.”
