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.

Geez, I hate when they take my picture!  I'm too FAT!
Hi, I'm "CHIP-A-DOG"
That is what they call me when they want me to come to them.  I don't mind it.  It's funny.  I am 8 years old and very heavy for my breed of dog.  But, I am loved just the same.  I love to run around outside and bark alot but when I am told to stop I normally do what I am told.  I also suffer from  Epilepsy,     so I have to take medicine for the rest of my life.  My best friend is "Belle" she is a pomeranian dog.   I am bigger then her.  She is my Pal, but she gets on my nerves from time to time.  I am set in my ways.  I normally don't like other dogs but, we have a little jack russell named Sadie that I tolerate if I have too...she is really small but very pushy!  I love it when Dad comes home because I will go and greet him with a growl and maybe a burp or two.  I found a great family and would not trade with any other dog in the world!   My most embarrassing moment was when I was younger, I wanted to chase my co-owner Joshua on a bicycle and he was riding down a hill and I jumped from an 8 foot deck and scrapped my chin up and hurt myself.  I never did that Again.  NO!!!   Not me, I know better now. 
Sincerely,  "CHIP-A-DOG"  the Sheltie!
