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.

HI!  I am SOOOOO excited to be here.  I am a big lapdog.  As soon as momma sits down, I am in her lap.  She says I am getting too big for this but she loves me so much she always makes room for me. Even in the bed.  This is my favorite place to sleep.  I crawl right under the covers with moma and then I try and steal the good pillow.  I have a sister the same age as me and an older brother.  Me and my sister play hard and sometimes moma has to give us a time out cause we get so carried away.  My sister is the noisy one though.  Sometimes we try and gang up on our brother and steal his bones.  Boy, does this make him mad.  Then momma yells and takes away all the bones till we settle down.  I like to lounge anywhere I can find a warm spot.  My favorite toy is my tug rope and I have a kitty that lives in the garage.  Sometimes he comes in the house and I get to play with him.  I have to be gentle and not get to excited or momma says I will squash him.....oh boy here he comes now!  I'm gonna go play!
