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.

Emma found me at the Sarnia humane society one cold december day when i was 15. I adopted her as soon as i saw her and brought her home. Although the first months were from hell as she was a 9month old labrador, we made it through and she is the most important thing in my life these days.  We've had our share of termoil (her sock eating days came to an abrupt end when she needed $1000 surgery to remove one) shes gone away to college with me, and now lives in Thunder Bay with me where i got my first job as a Veterinary Technician. She tolerates our kitty Skittles, and her new housemate Molson the rottie. She loves almost everyone she meets even other dogs, she just seems to have issues with dominant females. her favourite toy was a stuffed canadian goose that honked when squeezed but it unfortunatly came to a sad end when Max my parents basset/beagleX ate it on her. She now has an octopus that has replaced it.
