He or she may have ‘had enough’ or getting frustrated in a situation.
They may be highly aroused in anticipation of an event such as, ‘I’m waiting, waiting, for that food bowl to be put down….come on!”
It pays to look at the overall situation to gain clearer insight as to the route cause of the ‘fake’ yawn but worth then addressing if this is a stressful situation/event requiring resolution, Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant & Dog Trainer, Dogs Best Friend.

Why do dogs roll in feces?

Also, when rolling in prey feces, it may be a way to carry information about where that individual has been and what they have then found (food wise from rolling in their preys feces) Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant and Dog Trainer, Dogs Best Friend.
