Some predators — and dogs are a predatory species — like to roll in certain smells. The speculation behind this particular behavior is that the new smell helps to disguise their scent from their prey.

They likes to roll their body on some stinky stuff on grass like dead bugs. Thats one of their instict to cover their own body smell from other animal.
