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.

I was left out in front of an apartment, behind a bus stop in the rain by my previous owner. I cried and cried for someone to rescue me from the cold but no one came, while I sat for hours in the rain in my own feces. Finally, this young girl saw me crying and carried me inside her home. She bathed me, dryed me, feed me, and let me fall asleep in her arms. Now I have a great home, and remind my owner about how much I appreciate and love her by greeting her with a wagging tail and a big lick on the face whenever she comes home to see me. I do cause trouble sometimes when I make accidents on the floor, tear up a bunch of newspapers, or attempt to bite holes in her shoes, but hey...I'm just a puppy and I don't mean any harm. I'm just happy to be alive and to have a good home. : )
