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.

This is Belle. She is a resuce lab, that came to live with me, when she was 3 months. She loves to sleep in the bed, and loves our towels. She is not sure of strangers until she gets to know them. Loves her bones, chew toys and a pink bunny she received for easter. Has a toy box full of goodies. Lays in the middle of the yard on her back like she is sun bathing. Favorite trip was to the beach and loved the water and tried to surf with the kids. That was funny. Likes to stay with her grandparents.  Treats the cat socks like he is her own. Great personality. Trys to sit in my lap still.
