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 just came to my new family 2 weeks ago.  I love it here.  I get to run around free.  I live on a farm and have 3 horses to look after.  I also have two sisters to watch over and my new best friend is Jovi.  She really is more like a daughter to me, she is so small.  My favorite thing to do is keep coyotes away.  I don't like them one bit.  My sisters like to lead me around the yard on my leash even though I don't need the leash.  They have so much fun that I don't mind at all.  Every time Mom opens her van door I try to get in.  I like to have a car ride once in a while too.  Right now I need to go and do my rounds, after all, I do have coyotes to keep away!
