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.

Sissy was our beloved beagle.  She was hit by a car after a freak wind gust opened our gate.  She will be missed forever by Bill and Lonnie.  She was a blessing to us.  She loved unconditionally and brought much much joy to our lives.  Run free, little Sissy, you are now safe in the care of Jesus with all the other animals who have passed on.  We will never forget you, and even if we get another dog, you will never be replaced.  Samson and Fruit miss you too.  You were a beautiful friend and companion and gave so much more than you ever required in care.  Love your animals while you have them.  They really are your best friends.  Enjoy every moment, because they are fast and fleeting.  Thank you God for sending Sissy into our lives.

Bill and Lonnie
