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.

Well, first of all I would like to say that owning a pitbull has been one of the funniest things in my life. I f you actually read up on the breed the dog is a very sensitive, human loving, and athletic well built dog. The breed was indeed bread to fight, being a dog of war in the 18th and 19th century. The one thing that must be done as soon as possible is to get your pit socialized, and neutered if you dont intend to breed. Tuff is a wonderful dog he loves people, loves tug of war, he can tell when your sad. He loves to be held like a little baby, he will sit on my bed and wine until I let him under the covers. He is great around my brothers new bord baby. He loves to lay with all my friends when we have sleep overs, and is always ready to party or go for a ride. He loves to be ran and worked out. He loves to swim, I recently bought a dog life jacket and he was in the water while I was fishing for a good couple hours.
