We often get questions on why puppies do this. In puppies their eyesight is not developed yet so they twist their head to see what sounds hit what ear so they can turn and focus with their more developed eyesight or in older dogs it may be an unfamiliar sound.   I put this to the test and found a sound bite that had great results with my labradoodle Hank.   

Have fun and see if it works!
