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.

Bobbi was a very special tiny Chihuahua. We picked her and her brother "Gus" to be together always. She was a quiet, shy little girl that needed special attention because of her size. We had her for 12 yrs and totally devastated when she passed. After many years she lost her teeth and became blind but that never stopped my little sweetheart. She held her own with my other two Chihuahua's, and her brother Gus looked after her every days with licks and laying by her side. I will never forget her and so happy to have had her in my life. Brother Gus misses you so much Bobbi, I'm sure he will be with you soon. I will take very good care of him until then. This is for you our darling.
