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.

Addison was so affectionate.  She loved my husbad to pieces!!  She couldn't get enough of him.  He, who wasnt even a cat person to begin with, was charmed by our little furry friend!  She was my baby!  She was definately a "Daddy's girl".   Her sister Gracey will be lonely without her.  Addison was funny, sweet and loved to play!  She got sick suddenly and died last night.  She will be missed!  We are beside our selves wondering what it was that made her so sick.  The vet does not know either.  We took her to the vet last week because she just didn't seem right to us.  She was acting funny and really kind of sad looking.  He said her temp was fine, she looked healthy and just to watch her.  She only got worse throughout the next few days.  So, we took her back in 7 days later and she died that night.  I feel so bad!  Like she was trying to tell me she was sick!  My heart goes out to Gracey now, left without her sister and Best friend!  I love you Addy!  Daddy loves you too!  We will miss you always!  God Bless you!
