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.

Buddy is our alterain Yorkie and is 5 years old!  He goes everywhere we go and the terrain doesn't much matter.  His favorite spot is in our living room window and is there all day unless I move.
He hates Cats, rats and squirrels!
He gets up in the morning, goes out to do his thing and then waits for me to get the kids lunches ready and looks for his morning treat.
If I make a move towards the bathroom, he is there looking to see if he is going with us.
He is such a good dog but doesn't like people around the vehicle I am in and will let them know.   If you didn't see him first, you would think he was pitbull!
He keeps up with me for an hour walk in the mornings but tends to bring the outside into the house, leaves etc.
Buddy sleeps with my husband and I every night.  Yes, he is spoiled!!!!
