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.

I am a pampered pet at home. My bed is my very own special cubby in Mom and Dad's headboard.  My sisters think that I am the cutest puppy in the world.  When they come home from school they both say hello to me before they say hello to anyone else.  Mommy takes me with her everywhere, and I just love all of the car rides.  My favorite toy is my stuffed cow.  I don't play fetch with her though.  I use my rope bone for that.  My best friend is Star.  She is white like me, but really big.  Mommy says she is an Akbash dog.  I don't know what that is, I just like her because she is so nice to me.  I don't like to take baths, but I do like to be dried with the hair drier after.  I get very fluffy when I am all dry.  I love to meet new people.  I love it so much that I just wiggle.  Mommy likes that I am not a yappy little dog.  I only bark when I am playing chase with my sisters.  I am so quiet that Mom had to hang a little bell on the door for me to ring when I need to go outside.  It works really well. Sometimes I ring the bell just to go outside to play.  All in all, I do get to live the dogs life!
