After an even first half, the Hawks have kicked away for a commanding 63-point win.
The Bulldogs led by two points at half time before the Hawks broke the game open.
Hawthorn kicked 12.6 to 2.1 after the main break.
Luke Breust led the way with six goals — five before half time — but he had plenty of support.
Jarryd Roughead and Jack Gunston both kicked four goals, and Isaac Smith added two.
Breust told 3AW the Hawks pride themselves on sharing the love.
“We’ve always been a selfless forward line,” he said.

Conor Glass has been withdrawn.
The Bulldogs are unchanged.
Here’s another Saturday night cracker!
