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.

                                  Hello My name is Triton .
 I am a pure bred chow puppy. I love to go for walks & play with all of the other dogs .
I have my own Doggy door, so I can go out when ever I want.
 My favorite toy is a stuffed mellon with bells in it.
 I saw my first snowfall this year & I love it. I would rather be out side in it all day & night, but Mom rules so I have to come in.
 I have a very good temperment & I love to meet everyone I see, because my parents have socialized me big time from the first day I went to live with them.
 I am afraid of tin foil. It comes out I run out my doggie door.
 What is up with that stuff anyway?
