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.

Sapphire is so friendly he would'nt scratch me or any body.Whenever he wanted to come inside or in a room the would scratch at the door untill we opened the door.He always waited his turn to eat even when the other animals in the house stole his dinner.I loved it how he purred when I came home from school I picked him up and was e so happy,Sapphire began to suck on my hand,and when he did I knew that he was at his happiest.You were so young when you died,when I realized that you you hurt I got Mum and rushed down to the vets, the vets said it's not looking good,a big dog attaked your cat and riped his bone out completly we're going to have to put him down, all I remenber is bursting out in tears,I'm so sorry Sapphire I know that you knew what was going on at the vets,you did'nt want me and my mum to be sad,so you lay there trying to be comfortable.I remember those big blue eyes looking at me for the last time,I hope we'll meet again.
Goodbye
Love your family.
