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.

Hi :)
I am a girl and my name is Curly. My previous owners did not have any time for me :(  Most of the time, I was boarded at the vet. so i never learned how to behave with other dogs or people. Finally after a year and half they just took me to the Toronto Humane Society :(
I still think about them sometimes and miss them :(  but I am glad they did. because within hours of being put up for adoption, my new dad came and got me :) i was very shy at first specially because he was a man, it took few weeks, but soon, i learned to trust my new home. i learned how to walk on a leash and not to be scared of other dogs and people. soon, i started to be confident with almost everyone. i am no longer affraid of going through doors, the aquarium, or the tv. i have lots of friends in the neighbourhood, i always love to greet the custodians in my building every morning :) when i go out i always want to meet new people because they give me good treats and tell me i am a good dog! especially the ladies, i love the high tone of their voice :) now, i get 4 walks a day and i get to go for car rides and shopping to malls. my new dad even takes me to work with him some fridays, and everyone loves me there. they give me treats, tell me that i am a good dog and I JUST LOVE THAT ! :)
