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.

Spot, you came to me in 1999 September 16, 3 days after my birthday as a gift from Alvin.  He was worried that i might be lonely so he brought me to get you.  I was so happy when i brought you home.  Finally! i have my own dog!  I had fun house-training you although i was pissed when you stole my food sometimes! You grew up to be an obedient dog and you always had me laughing with your special TURBO RUN and MOP THE FLOOR dance move. I love spending my free time with you although you hardly see me till night.  I love your big brown bright eyes.  Sadly, I had to say goodbye to you on 15 Jan 2004 at a very young age of 4+.  I missed the nights when you came and snuggled close to me, running to me on stormy nights, jumping sky high when i came back from holidays.  I miss you so much....but i knew that you are much better now.  We will always remember you, our beloved, faithful family member.
