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.

Buster was our pride and joy. A dog that had many characteristics that distinguished him as a dog with more love for people and his owners then any other anymal I have ever met. Buster was my best friend and my wifes first friend here in Canada. With the birth of our first child 12 weeks ago, Buster not only protected her but also loved her and showed it in many ways. There are no words to describe Buster how much we hurt right now and how much we miss you. We can only think of how much you made us happy and the love and companionship that you gave us over the years. I never thought you would ever leave us. It just never occured to me. And if I ever took you for granted, which Im sure I did, I sincerely hope you will forgive me little buddy. You are the best friend a guy could ever ask for and I don't want to say good bye, but if I have too, this I hope will give you some idea how much you mean to our family. Your family. With love and affection always.

We miss you Buster!
Ron, Olga & Tatyana
