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.

Franko is the smartest dog I have ever seen, don't even think about the TV dogs, Franko is better! He can sing, say "Hello", say "Please", speak (bark on command), dance, walk on his hind legs, fetch, roll-over, shake both or either paws, retrieved specific toys (get your ball/rope), and much more. He is very intelligent and human-like. You can actually carry on a conversation with him, and he will make faces and even speak (bark) to you when you talk to him. He also comes to get people when he has to go out, and he listens very well when you call him to do something (like sit on the couch/go outside). Something funny about Franko is that he gets very jealous, if you feed our fish and make noises like (fishie fishie fishie) he starts to bark and you and do some tricks, like lay down and roll-over. He likes to snuggle, and when he sleeps in the same bed as you he lies under the covers with either his head or his butt on a pillow. Franko has many nicknames including Frank, Booger, Baby, Puppy, Mr. Magoo, Big Man, and more. The most embarrassing moment of Franko's life was when he tried to swim. As he got deeper and deeper into the water he started to realize that his butt was floating, he struggled and his head went under, happily he was rescued and brought safely to land, but Franko will swim deep again, and is now sometimes known as "hollow butt". As you can see Franko is amazing, it is so sad that he is getting older, he is 9 years old right now. I hope he will be with us forever.
