Why do female dogs sometimes eat other dogs’ babies?

Is there any particular reason why female dogs sometimes eat other dogs’ babies? How do I prevent this from happening?

1 Answer

This occurrence of cannibalism is not uncommon in the wild. Female dogs sometimes do this in order to emphasize their dominance and their right to breed. This can be prevented by separating female dogs from each other while they are in the process of giving birth or taking care of their puppies.
