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.

Cookie's Got A New Family!
I was rescued along with my sister Sadie from somewhere near Cornwall, Ontario at the age of 5 weeks old. We were taken in by the very kind people at Rosie's Animal Adoption in Montreal. My sister Sadie was adopted by a wonderful family in Toronto and I was adopted by a family in the Montreal area. Unfortunately, my family in Montreal were unable to keep me and once again I was up for adoption.
On April 23rd, 2005, I was adopted by my "forever family" and guess what? They live in the Toronto area too!   One very hot day in June, my mom drove me to Sadie's house for a special reunion and boy what a fantastic day that was! We were both so happy to see each other again and we can't wait for our next playdate!
I have settled into my new home very nicely. My new family now includes another doggie sister named Tasha and a cat sister named Cady. We all get along great and I am very happy with my new family! Of course I should mention the humans in my family too. Besides my mom and dad, there are two very special girls who love to play and cuddle with me.....life is good!
Here is a picture of me and my sister Sadie. I am the one on the left. As you can see, good looks run in the family!
