All about Cassie
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.

Cassie is a sweetheart who just loves to be loved. She has a big brother named Hunter who although is a lot bigger than she is, she loves to boss him around. She acts tough, but when it comes down to it she loves to cuddle with Hunter. You can usually find her lying on top of Hunter in some of their favourite spots.
She loves to eat and loves to smell, keeps her nose to the ground all the time. She is a little hard to teach tricks, Mom says she is a little too stubborn!!! But that is what being a beagle is all about!
