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 my name is Riley and I am 2 years old!!!  I'm quite a handful I hear my parents saying!!! But I know they love me.  I'm a real Mama's Boy!!! My mom calls me that all the time!!! I love my mommy!!!!
I have been with my family since I was 9 weeks old and I love them so much!!! I have a older canine sister Dakota, she is 5 years old.  She didn't really like me at first, but I kinda grew on her and we play all the time together.  She is the Boss though and reminds me everyday!!!
I also have another feline sister Fluff Duff, she is 13 years old and sometimes a little crabby, but I try to play with her, doesn't work to well though.
I love to chew bones and play with the many toys my sister Dakota and I have.  Love to swim in our Doggy pool too!
I'm a Mama's Boy and I'm Proud Of It!!! 
I just recently lost my Uncle Shep, he went to doggy heaven.  I will miss him so much as I always loved playing with him, he was alot older and couldn't get around much, but he seemed to like when I played with him!!  R.I.P. Shep!! You will be missed!!!
