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.

Coconut  was the most loving dog, she was a companion and a friend to my disabled husband.    She was very unique in everything she did,  for instance,  she would eat only from my husband's dish and if he was eating it,  she wanted it.  She was such a love and just as friendly.  She was called the artic fox by a neighbor as her ears were so soft.   We miss her dearly, and hope she rests in peace.  She was a very sick girl,  and we know she is in a better place.   Bye best girlfriend.  We love and miss you!!
