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.

I am a darling young pure bred yellow lab, who loves to get all the attention I can get. I am also a real mamma's boy, and most times I could care less when daddy comes home from work.  I love the outdoors but am really afraid of water. My favorite things to do are play frisbee and cuddle up next to my toy bunny for a nap. I am very energetic, and love going on walks when the days are cool enough, and weather permitting (which isn't very often, living close to the ocean). My most embarrasing moment would be my first bath. After I got out and was dried off by mommy, I went to go down stairs and slipped on the hard wood steps. I was always careful after that one. My most cherished memory was meeting my new parents. I couldn't be any happier here. They spoil me with all sorts of treats and I get a new toy, every month, as long as I have been good, which I am most of the time. I still need to learn how not to jump on mommy, and hit her in the tummy, because I am going to get a sister around Christmas, and I don't want to hurt her, before I get a chance to meet her, and help mommy and daddy take care of her.
