Pet Tip

Dog is a Crotch Sniffer – Pet tip 245

Most dog owners are aware that dog noses are extremely sensitive. This is due to the quantity of olfactory or ‘smell’ receptors in a dog’s nose. Whereas humans have around five million olfactory receptors, dogs have two hundred and twenty million. This makes their noses exponentially more sensitive than a human’s. Most times a dog’s sensitive nose works to our benefit. All kinds of dogs are used as service dogs to help humans find missing people, sniff out explosives, drugs etc. They can smell people coming from quite a distance and alert us to their presence. There are some embarrassing occasions however, when a dog’s nose is just too sensitive from our human perspective. Most notably this occurs when dogs try to sniff humans in their private areas.

This behaviour is a common one in dogs and equally common is the fact that it upsets most dog owners. The reason some dogs sniff at a human’s private parts is the same reason they sniff the private parts of other dogs. We know that when they smell other dogs in this way they can tell the sex, rank (is the dog more dominant or submissive) age and other information about the dog.

This is a farewell tribute to our much loved Teddy.  As I was there for his birth, this is the first time we have been parted.  Teddy was an adorable little Ewok who won hearts everywhere he went.  Grown men and teenage boys have all cried to hear the news of his untimely passing.  Shame on the motorist who didn't even stop.  Teddy loved to run with his best friend and father, Bones.  I want to celebrate his life - he was more than just a puppy - he was gentle, generous and a great listener.  He loved to romp on the beach in the summer and bury his face in snow in the winter.  His collection of stuffed animals is impressive and each one caused his face to light up like the first.  Even our cats are mourning Teddy for he protected them also.  Go with God, Teddy.
