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.

In memory of a beautiful little cat named KittyK who has touched her hearts over the past 17 years with her charm and companionship.  We were blessed to have her as a part of our family for so many years.  She had such a wonderful life, coming and going as she would please, always having one of our warm beds to cuddle up and sleep the day away...not to mention sleeping on a certain someone's pillow at night, curled around their head.  Although she lived a long and healthy life, we were so saddened when she suddenly became very ill, she will be forever missed.  Forever our KittyK


Matty, Barb, Matthew, Amanda, Matt and (2) feline siblings, Templeton and Macarune,  who still dont understand where their big sister has gone.
