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.

Dakota Isn't the average dog you see. He's very hyper! If there could be one pill a dog needs..It's a Ritilin Pill. Dakota is a smart and loyal dog. A dog who needs the attention. And sometimes I think he gets too much of it. He loves to take a run in the park and loves being at the lake. He is our quad dog, a boat dog. He loves being with the family. Dakota is loved and is only a year old.
Dakota is very friendly and will jump and lick anyone he sees. He is a family dog. Dakota is special in an ever loving way. He is part of our family and always will be. He is lovable,adorable and cute.!
