Our new sheltie, Jake, has been on California Natural for the two days that we have had him. We got a sample pack of foods and offered one piece for him to try (orijen puppy).

Jake would take it in his mouth (sometimes for a number of seconds), drop it, rub his muzzle on it. Then repeat this several times over the next 30 minutes. He eventually broke it down into a few pieces, but never actually ate the entire thing.

I have heard that animals rub their muzzles to "mark" their scent on things, but what was this behavior?
