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.

loyal dog, faithful campanion, always by my side-enough said :)

'Guardian angel'


a friend will always stand beside you

in fear or in death he's there

even when your alone and not even family wants to care

you know he's right there

listening to eveything you say

every tear you cry


every dog isnt just a pet

he was never satisfied with that

he had to be one of us

and even though he's gone

I've visited his grave many time a day

he was the first that taught me that some people cared

and would always be there

Dooby's not, and never was my pet

but my guardian angel

and thru death he's still here

and he's here to stay..
