Why do dogs like chasing balls?

Dogs have a natural prey drive, which means they have a strong instinct to chase after small moving objects.

This instinct is often triggered by balls and other toys that are thrown or rolled, as they resemble prey animals that dogs might naturally chase in the wild.

Chasing balls and other toys also provides dogs with an opportunity to exercise and burn off energy, which can help prevent boredom and destructive behaviour.

Playing with balls and other toys can be a fun and rewarding activity for dogs, and many dogs enjoy the opportunity to interact and play with their owners.
