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.

Dearest spot we all miss you dearly we know you are up above looking after your children (snowy and miricale) & your grandchild (tye) who never lived very long. I am only sorry i got you dressed maybe then this would not have happened. I hope that you are happy were you are. Not a day goes by when i don't think about you. I know that no one understands why i miss you so much but no one knew you the way i did. I will always remember the way you stole daddy's chow mein and how you used to steal my hot and spicy pringles.



Love Mum & Dad
