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.

Unfortunately my beautiful boy lost a battle with a creature here in the tropics that bites. We found him and got him to the vet but there was nothing that could be done for him. He was made comfortable and died peacefully in his sleep. You were such a special friend who  progressed from a very scared shy kitten to the king ruling the roost. You didnt even mind visitors anymore. I will miss you in my lap, your morning hellos and your beautiful smiling face. Thank you for the trust,affection and the unconditional love you gave me. You were someone special who will remain in my heart forever. I love and miss you beautiful. xxx
