All dogs and quite a few other animals/reptiles do head tilts to varying degrees. Maybe ‘familiarity does breed contempt’ in our pups – such as - they have heard it all before , and so no need to be paying too much attention !

I still get head tilts off Riley and he is now over 6 years old ! These are particularly noticeable when I am singing in the car when we are out and about ! I don't do it all that often – probably much to the poor pup’s relief !
So I get a few head tilts – he is just making sure that it is really me making this very strange noise ! Then I get a tongue in the ear and if I still persist - I get a lick across my chops and then he starts making his own noises - trying to make me stop !
Just love an appreciative audience !
