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.

Bon Ami's Peekaboo Lacey May


Born on May 18th, 1996.  Went home to the Rainbow Bridge on August 19th, 2007.  She was the sweetest, most caring little dog that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.  Lacey didn't have a mean bone in her tiny body.  She lived every day to please her owners, and care for her only surviving baby, Buffy, who was with her until the day she died.  She never 'expected' a thing.  Only wanted to 'give' every ounce of her love.  I will never forget that precious little face with that silly little underbite, or the day I brought her home when she was no more that a pound and a half.  God took her way too soon, but He had a reason.  We are going to miss you more than you know, my little Lacey, little Lacey May Belle.  We will never, ever forget you, or the devotion that you showed us during your short 11 years on this earth.   Rest in Peace, little furchild.
