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.

Morris’ likes are eating, being around people, and getting rubbed. His dislikes are petting him wrong or he’ll let you know – by pawing at you or nibbling and whatever he can get ahild of to make you stop. His favorite play things would have to be real geckos and chasing them ‘til they lose their tales. His pet peeves consist of getting litter between his paws that he can’t get out and bothering him when he wants to be left alone. His favorite spot is the mat on the porch of the house – and, when he’s inside it’s his bed. His most embarrassing moment is when a girl cat had to protect him. Last but not least is the cherished memory – which would be two: (1) the day he came home 12 years ago and we cuddled and played all day long; (2) as well as every Christmas he would have an ornament to put up – with my help of course and playing in the wrapping paper.
